Singapore, 30 May 2006 – StarHub, Singapore's integrated info-communications provider, today announced that from 1 July 2006, all customers on its MaxOnline 2000 subscription plan or pay-as-you-surf MaxOnline FlexiSurf 2000 service will be able to connect to the Internet at faster download speeds of up to 4000 Kbps.

As with previous upgrades in bandwidth, this upgrade will come at no additional charges. Post-paid customers will continue to pay a monthly subscription of S$56 (S$58.80 with GST) while the pre-paid service will still be available at a daily rate of S$2.50 for a minimum of three consecutive days of Net usage.

In addition, to reflect the enhanced download speed that these services offer, MaxOnline 2000 and MaxOnline FlexiSurf 2000 will be renamed MaxOnline 4000 and MaxOnline FlexiSurf 4000.

Said Mr Thomas Ee, Senior Vice President of IP Services, StarHub: "As always, StarHub will continue to seek ways to proactively add value on our products and services, so as to serve our customers better. For example, we provide free Digital Voice subscription to all post-paid MaxOnline subscribers, allowing them to save at least S$10 on their residential fixed-line bill monthly. Similarly, we believe many MaxOnline users will be delighted with this upgrade. With this and more, we give customers more reasons to choose StarHub as their preferred service provider."

To benefit from StarHub's upcoming value offering, the MaxOnline customer simply need to reset his cable modem by turning the electrical power source off and on again from the effective date to enjoy the enhanced online experience instantly.
