SINGAPORE (July 20): Singapore’s newest telco TPG Telecom is launching a new “Seniors Go Digital” commercial mobile plan for senior citizens today at a promotional price of $5 until 31 July 2021. The plan will include 20GB of local data at full LTE speed, 300 minutes of local calls, 30 local SMS alongside free caller ID and incoming calls among other perks.
Said CEO Richard Tan, “While many of us were able to quickly tap on digital tools for our daily activities during this pandemic, many seniors do not have access to affordable and worry-free mobile plans. This makes it more challenging for them to adapt to the new normal which requires constant connectivity.”
According to TPG, all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents aged 60 years and above are eligible for both the promotion and plan. After 31 July 2021, the price of the plan will double to $10. In a press release, the firm says that the plan is geared towards offering seniors the “best value for money” and helping them avoid bill shocks should they exceed the 20GB local data limit. The plan allows users to enjoy always-on data at 512kbps after the first 20GB is used.
