Following in M1’s footsteps, Singapore-based telecommunications company TPG is also launching a Seniors Go Digital mobile plan in partnership with the Infocomm Media Development Authority (IMDA).
Last month, M1 launched two new plans called Seniors Go Digital and Mobile Access for Seniors to support seniors and encourage them to adopt digital services.
TPG and M1 are telecom operators selected to participate in IMDA’s SG Digital effort to promote and help low-income seniors embrace digital.
According to Richard Tan, CEO of TPG Singapore, “Many seniors do not have access to affordable and worry-free mobile plans. This makes it more difficult for them to adapt to the new standard which requires constant connectivity. “
M1 and TPG senior-specific mobile plans are eligible for Singaporeans and permanent residents aged 60 and over.
TPG’s Seniors Go Digital SIM-only plan is available starting today at a promotional price of S $ 5 per month until July 31, 2021.
After this promotional period, the price will increase to S $ 10 per month.
What does the plan include?
The plan allows seniors to use unlimited data, with the first 20 GB at 4G speed and choked at 512 Kbps thereafter.
M1’s “Seniors Go Digital” plan offers 30 GB of data at S $ 18.75 per month for a SIM plan only. A contracted-device plan is also available for S $ 30 for 12 GB of data.
All plans come with a free three-month subscription to Viu Premium and TVBAnywhere +.
Low-income seniors who qualify for IMDA’s mobile access for seniors are eligible for a one-year mobile plan at S $ 5 per month and a smartphone priced as low as S $ 20 .
The plan offers 6 GB of data under M1 and 20 GB under TPG. Singtel and Starhub also offer subsidized plans under IMDA.
