Singapore , 24 August 2009 - StarHub today announced that the customer base of its home phone line service, Digital Voice, has hit 200,000.

This is double the 100,000 customer mark reached 10 months ago when StarHub offered Digital Voice as a free value-added service to StarHub TV customers. MaxOnline customers have been enjoying the service free-of-charge since 2005.

Ms Ong Bee Lian, Vice President, Home Solutions at StarHub attributed the popularity of Digital Voice to the creative bundling of StarHub services that offers both choice and value to the company's growing base of customers.

Said Ms Ong, "Our customers see great value of our Digital Voice service especially when the charges for home fixed-line service offered by the incumbent has increased significantly. With no monthly subscription fees and free local voice charges using StarHub's Digital Voice, StarHub TV or MaxOnline customers have saved at least $100 a year." 

As Digital Voice is also delivered through StarHub's broadband cable network that powers both its high-speed residential broadband service and high-quality multi-channel cable TV service, customers will be able to enjoy the cost-savings and convenience of dealing with a one-stop integrated service provider.

"With the current economic situation, we are happy to help our customers manage their home utility costs while they continue to enjoy the value and comprehensiveness of our StarHub TV and MaxOnline services. We will introduce more innovative bundled offerings in the coming months," said Ms Ong.

To take up Digital Voice, StarHub TV or MaxOnline customers can call the subscription sales hotline at 1630, sign up online at www.starhub.com/freehomeline or visit any StarHub Shop.

As a promotion, customers who sign up to Digital Voice can now purchase a Shiro DECT phone for only $43 (Usual price: $79). They also enjoy free subscription to Caller Number Display, Call Divert Plus, Call Waiting and Voicemail value-added services for three months.
