SINGAPORE - Singtel customers can now have three times their monthly data allowance for just $9.90 more a month under a new add-on service launched on Friday (Sept 16).

The DataX3 add-on service is only available to new and recontracting customers on eligible Combo subscription plans, and comes with a two-year contract.

For instance, its Combo 2 plan which comes with 2GB of mobile data costs $42.90 a month. For $9.90 more or a total of $52.80 a month, customers get a total of 6GB of mobile data. This is half the price of the current 6GB plan, called Combo 6, which costs $102.90 a month.

"We are always looking for innovative ways to give our customers more affordable data because mobile data has become essential to most Singaporeans for communicating, shopping, banking and entertainment," said Mr Yuen Kuan Moon, chief executive officer of Singtel's Singapore consumer business.

Earlier in the year, the telco launched its DataX2 add-on service that lets consumers double their existing mobile data bundle by topping up $5.90 a month.

"DataX2 has been extremely well-received and is very popular with our customers, leading us to create an even more attractive offer of DataX3," said Mr Yuen.
