“StarHub continues to innovate by extending BlackBerry services to our mobile prepaid customers, such as inbound travellers, foreigners working in Singapore or students who want to access email, Internet, social network sites, instant messaging and other data services from their BlackBerry smartphone. The new prepaid plan  allows users to enjoy the flexibility of pay-as-you-use and no-contract BlackBerry service on a short-term basis," said Mr Chan Kin Hung, StarHub's Head of Products and Solutions.
