Singapore carrier SingTel will remove 4G surcharge

A SingTel spokesperson has confirmed that its 3G and 4G data plans will be priced the same. Based on the carrier's FAQ, the telco's 4G value added service (VAS) is currently offered free for a "promotional period" on top of its current 3G plans. However, according to a spokesperson, SingTel plans do away with this clause, making 4G a default part of its price plan.

"SingTel tailors its services to meet customers' needs. Therefore we offer seamless and simple pricing plans. We offer 4G service at the same price as 3G and do not position 4G like an additional value added service," said Johan Buse, SingTel's VP of consumer marketing, in a statement.

M1's 4G plans, revealed yesterday, features the same S$10 (US$8.03) charge, though a spokesperson for the company said the fee was due to the nationwide coverage provided which its competitor SingTel does not currently have. SingTel's island wide coverage is expected to only be ready in early 2013.

The change by SingTel means that M1's mobile plans are more expensive if you want 4G access, especially when the carrier's coverage catches up. We have contacted M1 for a comment, and will update this story when the company has a reply.
