SingTel fixed telephone line customers will have to pay an additional $10 a year in subscription rates starting from 1 January 2009 (increase of 83 cents a month).
To help households that need financial assistance and cushion the effect of the rate revisions, SingTel will provide $1 million worth of $10 credit vouchers. Residents who need assistance can approach their Citizens? Consultative Committees or People?s Association grassroots leaders.
In addition, Land line telephone residential customers who sign up for both SingTel’s electronic bill statement and GIRO before 31 March 2009 will enjoy a one-time $10 discount on their annual subscription (find out more in this PDF file).
