Singtel postpaid mobile users will be able to access The Straits Times (ST) All-Digital subscription package without having to incur local data charges through its recently-launched Singtel Newsstand service.

The Singtel Newsstand service covers both digital and print newsstands, offering top international and local publications to postpaid mobile users.

The ST All-Digital package allows Singtel postpaid mobile 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 also have concurrent log-ons of up to six mobile devices simultaneously.

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

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

Mr Ignatius Low, Managing Editor of the English, Malay and Tamil Media group, Singapore Press Holdings, 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.
