StarHub First To Offer Global MMS
- Customers Able To Send MMS To Hong Kong CSL Mobile Customers -
Singapore, 5 November 2002 – StarHub offers yet another first – the first local mobile operator to have global MMS. From today, StarHub Mobile’s customers will be able to send global MMS* to Hong Kong CSL mobile customers.
"Our customers’ feedback showed that they would like to use MMS while travelling and also send MMS to their overseas friends. We listened and responded with MMS roaming** and global MMS. In being the first operator in Singapore to offer global MMS to Hong Kong, we have tremendously enhanced our customers’ experience with this pioneering service. Not only will they be able to send a MMS whilst in the USA, Europe and Asia, they can now send a global MMS from Singapore to their friends and loved ones in Hong Kong and vice versa," said Mr Chan Kin Hung, Vice President, StarHub Mobile.
When StarHub launched its MMS service on 12 October 2002, its mobile customers were immediately able to MMS in over 12 countries like the USA, Europe and Asia to their friends and loved ones in Singapore. Over the weekend, we have just added Australia.
"StarHub is always looking at ways to offer the best customer experience before it launches a service. Our MMS service was no exception. With StarHub being able to offer a wider range of MMS applications, MMS-enabled handsets, more MMS roaming destinations and now, global MMS, our customers will get to enjoy the best MMS experience!" added Mr Chan.
