Singapore's 4th telco, TPG, is offering free mobile service for a year to the first 20,000 customers to register interest

Singapore's 4th telco, TPG, is offering free mobile service for a year to the first 20,000 customers to register interest

After months of silence, Singapore's 4th telco, TPG, has announced that it will soon be ready to offer trial mobile services to the public. The trial period will last 12 months and will be free to the first 20,000 to register their interest with the telco

The trial plan will be a SIM-only plan that includes "Unlimited data and unlimited mobile-to-mobile calls, 20 local SMS, and 20 minutes of outgoing calls to land lines." However, 4G data speeds will only be available for the first 2GB of usage every day, after which, speeds will be capped at 1Mbps for the remainder of the day. Additionally, mobile to mobile calls will require a VoLTE (Voice over LTE) capable handset.

Furthermore, customers participating in the trial will have to use a new mobile as TPG's mobile porting is still being certified and will only be made available after the trial has completed.

TPG has not announced how much the monthly charges will be after the free trial period is over, but customers will be notified of the amount at least two months before the free 12-month trial period ends. There is no lock-in contract and customers are free to cancel their plan at any time.

"Through this service trial, we hope to seek public feedback as we optimize our network and service offerings through our unique Community Forum. The trial plan announced is tailored to encourage active use of our network and we hope to eventually extend the incredible benefits and value when we launch full commercial services,” said executive chairman David Teoh in the release.

If you're interested in participating in the trial, you can sign up here.
