Singapore, 20 July 2020 – TPG Telecom, Singapore’s newest telco, is launching its commercial mobile plan for seniors in Singapore. TPG’s “Seniors Go Digital” mobile plan provides 20GB of local data at full LTE speed (with always-on data at 512kbps after 20GB), 300 mins of local calls, 30 local SMS, free caller ID, free incoming calls and more.
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.
With its generous data allowance and always-on data, the TPG’s “Seniors Go Digital” mobile plan offers the best value for money for seniors at just $5 for 30 days. Seniors can enjoy total peace of mind while going digital as they do not have to worry about bill shocks given that 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.”
