#HelloChange: StarHub now offers an extra 50GB for $20 a month

#HelloChange: StarHub now offers an extra 50GB for $20 a month

Begin the data wars! Soon after Circles.Life’s announcement of their Unlimited data for $20 option, StarHub has just announced their own add-on option – an add-on data bundle of 50GB for a flat $20 per month. This will only be available to customers on postpaid plans introduced from December 2018 (both with devices and SIM only), so it seems customers on older plans will have to shift to the new plans to have this option. 

What’s good though, is that if you somehow manage to exceed the extra 50GB bundle, you won’t be charged extra for extra use. Rather, you’ll just have speeds throttled down to 1Mbps till the end of the billing month, which should be good enough for chat and basic surfing.

We continue our #HelloChange journey with a great new addition, as our customers deserve more pricing transparency and easy-to-understand mobile plans. 'Unlimited' data plans in the market today come with plenty of obscure limitations, from one-time activation fees to compulsory contracts and hidden speed and usage restrictions. Our worry-free data add-on takes such uncertainty and anxiety off our customers' minds by offering clear value and transparency with superior network performance.

Mr Johan Buse, Chief of Consumer Business Group, StarHub."

So, if you're on a plan introduced after Dec 2018,  you can activate ‘50GB with worry-free data' by using the My StarHub app with no one-time fees or contracts imposed starting today.

*Update*

If you're on an older plan and want to get this feature, we've just been informed that StarHub will let you shift over to one of the newer plans to qualify without penalty. You'll still have to serve out your existing contract, but at an equivalent or higher tier plan from the new options. In doing so though, you'll lose some of the legacy benefits of the older plans, so do weigh the pros and cons before switching.
