SingTel is introducing the first mobile data plans in Singapore to cater to the needs of customers aged 55 and above.
These 4G-enabled plans offer a discount of 20% off the regular monthly subscription of SingTel’s SuperLite and Lite plans, as well as a selection of handsets at no extra charge. Eligible customers who are existing subscribers of the SuperLite or Lite plan can enjoy the discounted rates when they renew their contract.

The telco is also collaborating with NTUC U Live to offer free clinics for seniors to help them understand how the data plans work and how to check their usage. The clinics will also provide instructions on configuring their handsets, using important functions and transferring their contact list from their old phone.
In addition, participants will receive an introduction to popular social media sites and cyber-safety. As with all SingTel postpaid mobile data plans, customers will receive automatic SMS alerts whenever they have used up 80% of their data allowance, thus protecting them from bill shock.
