SINGAPORE - StarHub will be charging more for its 4G mobile network from June, the first telco to do so here.

It has been offering its 3G customers access to 4G services as a free value-added service since September 2012. But the promotion, which was extended for five months, will end next month, reported The Straits Times.

From June 1, StarHub will charge $2.14 a month for its 4G Speed Boost value-added service which offers up to 75Mbps of surfing speed. It said that this is a promotional rate compared to the usual $10.70 a month.

StarHub put up a notice on its website on Tuesday and has started informing customers about the change via SMS. Only customers on its SmartSurf Lite, SmartSurf Value, SmartSurf Premium and SmartSurf Elite 3G plans will be affected.

Those who do not want to pay for 4G Speed Boost can unsubscribe from it.
