StarHub offers new WeChat prepaid plans

SINGAPORE - Starhub has launched a new data plan to get prepaid users not using 3G data to try out the service, as well as give existing prepaid data users more choices.

The telco has teamed up with social-messaging service WeChat, developed by China-based Tencent Holdings, to allow its prepaid customers to chat all they want for 40 cents a day or $6 a month.

Data usage is capped at 1GB a day on the WeChat app, which lets users send text messages and share photos and animated "stickers". WeChat users can also press a button to speak to a group of friends.

Prior to this, StarHub had only prepaid data plans that cover both Web surfing and use of social-messaging service at a flat rate.

Three months ago, SingTel announced a similar partnership with California-based WhatsApp.
