TPG Telecom, Singapore’s newest upstart in the Mobile carrier business, is offering Seniors above 60 a sweet deal with their latest SIM-only plan for only $5 a month in an effort to expand their userbase.

According to the press release yesterday (seen below), this is a year long promotion that Seniors can enjoy which will therein revert to a still-pretty-good deal of $10 a month. Considering how much mobile data you’re getting for the price, this is an awesome deal that’ll only put you down $60 for a year’s worth of service.

“TPG’s “Seniors Go Digital” mobile plan will immediately be available from its launch today and the special promotional price of $5 applies till 31 July 2021. All Singaporeans and Permanent Residents aged 60 years and above are eligible for both the promotion and plan. “

Richard Tan, TPG Telecom CEO

What’s worth mentioning is that there aren’t any additional data charges if the user exceeds their monthly data quota of 20Gb. While this means that you’ll be capped at 0.5Mb/s speed once you go over, that’ll still be more than enough for digital messaging or calls.

What you’re getting

Below are the list of benefits that you can get as part of this deal; note that you’re free to cancel the service at no additional charge if you feel like the plan is too expensive at $10/month a year later:

·         SIM-only plan with no contract

·         20GB local data at full 4G speed, data throttled at 512Kbps thereafter

·         300 mins of local call

·         30 local SMS

·         Free 1 GB Roaming Data to selected countries including Malaysia

·         Free Incoming Calls

·         Free Caller ID

·         Free port-in service
