Update (5.20pm) - Singtel said in an update at 4.40pm that "services have been restored for the majority of customers" and that users still having issues should restart their devices. However, many people have left messages saying that they cannot make calls from their devices.


SINGAPORE - Some Singtel customers are having problems using mobile data services.

Singtel said in a Facebook post at 2.49pm that "customers may be experiencing intermittent difficulties accessing 3G and 4G mobile data services".

Some users posted comments to the Facebook post, saying that the problem started about two hours before Singtel's announcement, while others said that they could not get through to Singtel's customer service hotline.

The Straits Times said readers told them that there was no mobile data services in areas like Bukit Panjang, Tampines, Orchard, Woodlands, and at HarbourFront.
