~ Exclusive hubber rates on IDD 018 for StarHub Mobile and Digital Voice customers ~

 

Singapore, 13 June 2003 -- StarHub has lined up yet another IDD 018 promotion* for its valued customers! In addition, StarHub Mobile and Digital Voice customers stand to benefit vastly from the power of hubbing from one source, StarHub, as they enjoy exclusive hubber rates on IDD 018.

 

From 15 June 2003, StarHub Mobile^ and Digital Voice customers stand to enjoy exclusive hubber rates of up to 67% savings on their overseas call bills to popular destinations like China, UK, US, India and Australia when they use IDD 018 from a StarHub Mobile or Digital Voice line.

 

Indirect IDD, or IIDD, customers (ie those who access 018 via SingTel residential fixed, SingTel mobile and M1 mobile customers) also enjoy savings at a different set of promotional rates.

 

When this latest IDD 018 promotion kicks off on 15 June 2003, StarHub International Calling Card customers will also enjoy the following benefits:

 

1. 60% discount off prevailing StarHub International Calling Card published rates when they use IDD 018 to call China, Taiwan and USA.

 

2. 30% discount off prevailing StarHub International Calling Card published rates when they use IDD 018 to call Australia, Canada, India, Indonesia, UK and Vietnam.

 

Said Ms Tham Loke Kheng, Senior Vice President of Consumer Marketing, Consumer Markets, "It certainly pays to hub with StarHub. Not only do we provide a wide range of services for our customers, we are also committed to rewarding them for hubbing with us. That's why all our StarHub Mobile and Digital Voice customers can now enjoy even greater savings with their exclusive hubber rates on IDD 018."

 

All IDD 018 customers will also continue to enjoy StarHub's unique Per Second Billing proposition. With Per Second Billing, customers pay for the actual duration of each call by the second, thus enjoying more savings for every call they make. StarHub's single all-day rates for IDD 018 calls also means that customers can make international calls at any time of day they choose for a flat rate all day and night. On top of that, IDD 018 also offers global coverage without compromising on call quality.

 

While enjoying these benefits through StarHub's IDD 018, customers will also be doing their bit for charity. StarHub has committed one percent of the revenue earned from all IDD 018 and IDD 008 calls, to the StarHub IDD Charity Fund, which is dedicated to providing direct benefits for the less fortunate in society. These direct benefits refer to educational and skill enhancement tools or basic livelihood necessities.

 

Customers can register for StarHub IDD services by filling up and sending us a print-out of the application form found on our website ( www.starhub.com ). Alternatively, they can register their existing telephone numbers by dialing 1800-CALL IDD (1800-2255 433).
