StarHub unveils free broadband service

9 Oct 2006

Singaporean telecoms operator StarHub has introduced a cable broadband service that allows users to access a selected list of websites and services, such as Hotmail and the online game Maple Story, for free. The move comes in the face of increased competition in the high speed internet access segment in Singapore. The limited broadband service, a revamp of StarHub’s existing FlexiSurf offering, gives users a download speed of 4Mbps and allows them to check their e-mail on Yahoo and Hotmail, chat using Windows Live Messenger, and download songs from StarHub’s Play Music website. They can also access local educational and e-government websites, once they have paid StarHub SGD78.75 for a cable modem.
