StarHub will be charging customers more for getting on its 4G mobile network from June this year, the first telco to do so here.
The telco has been offering its 3G customers access to 4G services as a free value-added service since September 2012. But the promotion, which was earlier extended for five months, will be ending next month.
From June 1, StarHub will charge $2.14 a month for its 4G Speed Boost value-added service which offers up to 75Mbps of surfing speed. It said that this is a promotional rate compared to the usual rate of $10.70 a month.
StarHub put up a notice on its website on Tuesday, and has started informing customers about the change via SMS. Only customers on its SmartSurf Lite, SmartSurf Value, SmartSurf Premium and SmartSurf Elite 3G plans will be affected. These plans were launched in September 2012, with tiered data bundles and a monthly subscription fee starting from 2GB and $38, respectively.
