With SingTel's new prepaid mobile social plans, prepaid users can now be connected to the Internet and send instant messages at an affordable rate.
For avid WhatsApp users, SingTel's WhatsApp plans offer them 1GB worth of data per day. A one-day plan costs only S$0.50 (US$0.40). Users can take advantage of savings by subscribing to a seven-day or 30-day plan, priced at S$3 (US$2.40) and S$6 (US$4.70) respectively.
Users preferring data to surf the web or connect to social networks via their mobile devices can leverage SingTel's Opera Mini Surf & Mail plans. Priced at S$1 (US$0.80) for a one-day plan, prepaid users are provided with 1GB of data per day for web surfing via the Opera Mini Browser. Those looking for longer coverage can opt for a seven-day or 30-day plan which costs S$5 (US$3.90) and $10 (US$7.90) respectively.
Opera Mini can be used with feature phones, smartphones, as well as iOS and Android tablets.
Johan Buse, SingTel's vice president of Consumer Marketing, said these new plans will help "meet the prepaid users' online needs" — such as being active on social media and embracing web-based apps — "at an affordable price".
