StarHub just announced Singapore's first suite of mobile post-paid plans that give consumers free local talktime and SMS. In addition, customers signing for these plans will be offered priority for their 4G data traffic.

The new mobile plans - SmartSurf HD Value, SmartSurf HD Plus and SmartSurf Premium - will be available tomorrow for subscription at all StarHub Shops and authorised dealers.­­The SmartSurf HD plans will co-exist with the existing SmartSurf (Lite, Value, Premium and Elite) and PowerValue (80, 100, 300 and 700) plans.

The SmartSurf HD Plans are designed to cater for a segment of consumers who use their phones mainly for voice calls and SMS. The local data bundle will range between 500MB and 1.5GB.

SmartSurf HD subscribers also will be given priority for their 4G data traffic via 4G SmartAccess where StarHub will allocate up to 25% more network resources for them as compared to other mobile users when they connect to any of StarHub's 4G base stations even when the network is heavily accessed.
