Singtel customers can now triple their data with the new DataX3 add-on

Now you can get 12GB of data without paying a triple-digit mobile phone bill every month. Singtel today announced DataX3, a new mobile data add-on that allows customers to triple their mobile data allowance at just S$9.90/month.

It introduced the add-on at an iPhone 7 launch event at the Marina Bay Sands Convention Centre, following up on the roll-out of the DataX2 add-on that was launched earlier this year.

DataX3 is available to new and recontracting customers on certain Singtel Combo Plans (Combo 2 and above) with a minimum subscription period of 24 months, and is an affordable way for power users to bump up their data allowance without subscribing to one of the more expensive plans.

For instance, a customer on the Combo 4 plan would just have to top-up S$9.90 every month to get 12GB of mobile data, instead of signing up for the 12GB Combo 12 plan that costs S$239.90/month.

DataX3 is available online or at any Singtel Shop and Exclusive Retailer.

Wi-Fi Calling

Singtel has also announced that it will offer Wi-Fi Calling (i.e., Voice over Wi-Fi) to Singtel mobile postpaid customers from today. This service allows customers to make HD quality voice calls and send SMS via any local Wi-Fi connection without the use of an app. The calls will switch seamlessly to the Singtel 4G network when users move out of Wi-Fi hotspot coverage. The service is available at no additional cost.

At launch, Wi-Fi Calling is only available on select iPhone, Samsung Galaxy, and Sony Xperia handsets, with other devices to be supported in the coming weeks. To enjoy the service, customers will need to switch on the VoLTE, and Wi-Fi Calling settings on their device and ensure that it is running the latest firmware or iOS. Calls and SMS messages made over Wi-Fi will utilize the talk time and SMS bundles of customers’ mobile plans. You can check out Singtel's website for more info.
