Singapore, 17 April 2009 StarHub today announced that from tomorrow, 18 April 2009, customers who demand "anytime, anywhere" access to information, communications and entertainment services from a multimedia smartphone can subscribe to a new mobile data plan - "MaxMobile Premium".

Specially packaged for professionals and entrepreneurs, MaxMobile Premium allows customers to enjoy 1GB of free bundled data at $19.90 monthly from any multimedia smartphone, for example, the latest Nokia E75 messaging phone that StarHub will start to retail from tomorrow at all StarHub Shops and Exclusive Partners' outlets.

With StarHub's deterministic, peace-of-mind pricing for its mobile data products including the new MaxMobile Premium data plan, customers would not get a bill shock for mobile data usage as the service has a price cap at $36.38 regardless of the amount of data used locally.

This permits customers to access a full range of mobile data services including push email, Internet, instant messaging applications, and social networking applications from their mobile devices over StarHub’s advanced mobile broadband network freely and constantly without worrying about sky-high data charges as they will at most pay up to the price cap for data usage.
