Singtel users get free data access to ST digital package

Singtel postpaid mobile users will be able to access The Straits Times (ST) All-Digital subscription package without incurring local data charges through its recently launched Singtel Newsstand service. The service covers both digital and print news-stands, offering top international and local publications to postpaid mobile users.

The ST All-Digital package allows these Singtel customers unlimited access to news articles, a seven-day news archive, and the e-paper version via an upgraded ST app for smartphone, tablet and online users. They can have concurrent log-ons of up to six mobile devices.

Also, they pay no local mobile data charges when they access the two ST apps (smartphone and tablet) and straitstimes.com.

The ST All-Digital package through the Singtel Newsstand is being offered for a limited time at a promotional price of $29.90 a month, valid with a 12-month contract.

Mr Ignatius Low, managing editor of Singapore Press Holdings' English/Malay/Tamil Media group, said: "This new promotional package will give those who want to stay on top of the news yet another option to subscribe to The Straits Times. With no data charges, subscribers can take full advantage of the paper's multimedia offerings."

Ms Diana Chen, Singtel's vice-president of mobile marketing, said the service offered access to premium content from ST and other top publications at up to 20 per cent off regular rates. "With data usage waived, our customers will have the freedom to enjoy as many articles and videos as they like," she said.

Customers can sign up for the ST All-Digital subscription package with no data charges via www.singtel.com/singtelnewsstand, visit any Singtel Shop or call the Singtel hotline on 1688/1609.
