Telco M1 has joined SingTel and StarHub in raising the rates for excess mobile data use, in the latest demonstration that data is king.

M1 customers will have to pay twice as much if they use more than what their data bundle allows. According to its website, the new rate of $10.70 for each gigabyte (GB), capped at $188.32 a month, will kick in from January.

Currently, it charges $5.35 per GB, capped at $94.16 per month.

SingTel was the first to end its promotional excess data rates in September. Since then, its customers have been paying twice as much for exceeding their data bundle - at $10.70 per GB, capped at $188.32 a month.
