Singapore, 20 June 2004 — StarHub announced today that it has surpassed the millionth customer mark for its mobile customers and is celebrating this major milestone with a Millionth Mobile Customer Celebrations Roadshow, which is currently taking place this weekend on 19 and 20 June 2004, 11am till 9pm at Atrium@Orchard (next to Plaza Singapura).
The search for StarHub’s millionth mobile customer started on 1 May 2004. All Postpaid and Green Prepaid StarHub Mobile customers, who are Singaporeans, Permanent Residents or Business-Registered customers were eligible for the lucky draw.
The lucky draw was conducted yesterday’s afternoon and five existing and five new StarHub mobile customers won travel vouchers worth S$30,000 each to any dream destination of their choice. Furthermore, 3 of the winners were Hub Club members (customers with StarHub Mobile, Cable TV and MaxOnline subscriptions) and were rewarded with an additional S$3,000 each.
“I am overjoyed to be one of the ten lucky winners among StarHub’s one million customers! I signed up with StarHub Mobile two months ago for my girlfriend as she needed a good mobile service provider for reliable and affordable services. Now that I have won this S$30,000 travel voucher, my girlfriend and I are going to bring our families to tour Egypt, to discover the country’s 3000 years of ancient history. I thank StarHub for making our dream come true.“ said Mr Melson Ho, 26 years old, engineer, one of StarHub’s mobile customers.
