All Day, Every Day On IDD 018 For All StarHub Mobile Users


Singapore, 7 February 2002 -- StarHub starts the "Year of the Horse" with yet another innovative offer for its mobile customers. Beginning 12 February (the first day of the Lunar New Year) till 31 December 2002, all existing and new StarHub mobile customers who use IDD 018 to contact their loved ones, relatives, friends or business associates in any part of Malaysia on their StarHub mobile lines will not incur any IDD charge at all! This applies to both pre-paid (Green) and post-paid mobile customers, and it applies seven days a week, 24 hours a day!


This offer comes only one month after StarHub reduced its IDD 018 prices to most destinations by up to 51%, making it one of the best IDD deals in Singapore. Said Mr William Tan, General Manager, Voice Services, StarHub, "StarHub is confident that people will appreciate the quality of IDD 018 and its competitive prices to over 240 destinations. But now we have taken the unbelievable step together to offer an incredibly special deal to our mobile customers who call Malaysia."


Said Mr Chan Kin Hung, Vice President, StarHub Mobile, "Once again, we are introducing another first in Singapore – no IDD 018 charge to Malaysia. We know that many of our customers have lots of relatives, friends and business associates in Malaysia. With this innovative offer, our customers will be the first ones ever in Singapore to enjoy such a deal. This is extremely beneficial to them especially during the current weak economic climate."


StarHub Mobile is the only local mobile operator that offers the best value mobile services in Singapore with first-in-market innovative features like Free Incoming local Calls and Per Second Billing. Now, by introducing no IDD charge to Malaysia, we have just given mobile phone users another compelling reason to choose StarHub Mobile.


This Lunar New Year, StarHub pre-paid and post-paid mobile customers will be able to call anyone at anytime, anywhere in Malaysia at no IDD costs by dialling 018 on their StarHub mobile lines. All they need to pay is the local outgoing mobile airtime. So with better rates, Free Incoming local Calls, and Per Second Billing, there simply is no better deal in Singapore!
