TPG Telecom, Singapore’s newest telecommunications company, recently launched a commercial mobile plan for seniors in Singapore with their TPG’ “Seniors Go Digital” mobile plan. This plan provides 20GB of local data at full LTE speed (with always-on data at 512kbps after 20GB), 300mins of local calls , 30 local SMS, free caller ID, free incoming calls and more.
A special promotional price of $5 applies till 31st July 2021 and all Singaporeans and Permanent Residents aged 60 years and above are eligible for this “Seniors Go Digital” mobile plan and promotion. With TPG Telecom generous data allowance and always-on data, our Seniors in Singapore can enjoy total peace of mind while going digital and they do not need to worry about bill shocks as they can continue surfing the internet even after consuming the first 20GB of local full speed data.
Richard Tan, CEO of TPG Singapore said: “While many of us were able to quickly tap on digital tools for our daily activities during this pandemic, many seniors do not have access to affordable and worry-free mobile plans. This makes it more challenging for them to adapt to the new normal which requires constant connectivity. Through TPG’s Seniors plan, we hope to encourage more seniors to go digital fully and enjoy the wide spectrum of content and services at their fingertips.”
