New Customers Just Dial 1800-CALL IDD To Register And Activate IDD Services Within One Day 


Singapore, 9 April 2001 -- StarHub's 1st anniversary celebrations continue to bring more surprises for its customers! StarHub is rewarding customers with savings of over S$1.5 million in their international call bills when they use IDD 008. Also, keeping its pledge to add value for its customers, StarHub is promising a 24-hour turnaround registration time for new international calling services’ customers. For those who have never used StarHub's international calling services before or want to add new IDD lines to existing accounts, can call in now, register and use IDD 008 or 018 within one day!


As part of StarHub's 1st anniversary celebrations last month, the company offered a special rate for its IDD 008 service to five popular destinations - Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, UK and the USA. Customers using IDD 008 to call any of these five countries paid only $0.08 per minute all-day, when calls were made between 24 March to 8 April 2001. To ensure that new international calling services customers do not miss StarHub’s 1st anniversary celebratory offer and due to popular demand, StarHub is extending the same five country IDD 008 promotion at $0.08 per minute all-day! The promotion will run from 9th to 30th April 2001.


Mr William Tan, General Manager, Voice and Fixed Services at StarHub, said, "We are very grateful to our customers who have given us strong support in StarHub’s first year. In place of spending the money to throw a massive street party, we decided to reward customers by giving huge savings in their IDD bills. This amounts to over S$1.5 million worth of savings!"


"At StarHub, we always seek to deliver a unique customer experience by providing prompt and personalized service. All new customers just need to do is to dial our hotline, 1800-CALL IDD, and give us their particulars. We will do the rest and they will be able to use IDD 008 or 018 the very next day. This hassle-free phone service for registering new IDD customers within 24 hours is the first of its kind in Singapore! Not only will new customers gain from our quick registration process but they will also enjoy tremendous savings on overseas calls!" Mr Tan added.


Starting 9th April, to register for StarHub's international calling services and use IDD 008 or 018 the very next day, new customers (except business customers) should call this 24-hour priority hotline 1800 - CALL IDD (1800-2255-433). New business customers are invited to call the StarHub Business Hotline 1800-825 8888. They can have their service activated within 3 - 5 working days (upon receipt of all necessary documents).


"Over 700,000 have registered and benefited from using StarHub’s premium quality international call services. They include SingTel mobile, SingTel fixed line and M1 mobile customers. Be the next to receive the very best from StarHub," urged Mr Tan.


All residential, mobile and business customers who have registered for StarHub’s international call services qualify for the special rate of S$0.08 when they call any of the five selected destinations. The savings range from 75% to 91%. In addition, the promotion is also extended to StarHub’s Green (pre-paid) mobile customers, StarHub payphone users, StarHub 1635 operator-assisted service customers, and StarHub HomeConnect pre-paid calling card users. However, it excludes SingTel and M1 pre-paid mobile customers.
