It is on like Donkey Kong.

StarHub has responded to the data plan battle telcos are currently waging.

At 5:30pm today, StarHub announced it is introducing a new 3GB-for-$3 data upsize option for mobile postpaid customers.
 
From today till April 1, customers who sign up for or renew their StarHub 4G plans will pay the promotional monthly rate of $3 for the new 3GB data upsize option.

Earlier, M1 also announced it is offering its customers the option to upsize their new line sign-up or re-contract their mobile data at a fixed additional cost of S$5.90 per month. The new plan is available for Lite+ users and above.

Upsized Data is available at the IT Show, M1 shops and M1 Exclusive Distributors.

Here's a peek at their new plan:

The Mega-Corp? Or The Underdog?

If you've been following the news closely, you'd remember that Singtel has also launched a new add-on plan called DATAX2.

This was after MyRepublic's latest announcement on their unlimited mobile data plan that sets its customers back at only S$60 per month.

Even though, analysts have shared their skepticism about MyRepublic's risky and over-promised move, a part of me still wishes that they'll hammer it out.
