SingTel is offering installment scheme for more people to own the latest iPad Air 2 or iPad mini 3. SingTel is not actually using the word “installment”. Instead SingTel uses the word “Top-up” and a one time down-payment for customers. In my opinion, this will make it more affordable for people to own these devices. Read on for more information.
SingTel will offer the much-anticipated iPad Air 2 with Wi-Fi + Cellular and iPad mini 3 with Wi-Fi + Cellular from today, 24 October 2014.
The new iPads will be offered with a range of attractive new 4G Mobile Broadband data plans that feature SingTel’s premium WiFi service. This means that in addition to their 4G data bundles, customers will enjoy unlimited high-speed WiFi usage until 31 July 2015. Subsequently, all 4G Mobile Broadband plans will come with 2GB of WiFi data allowance.
Unlike free public WiFi networks, SingTel’s WiFi network is fully managed to ensure high quality performance. It can provide connectivity that is five times faster than typical free public WiFi services. (Average typical speeds of SingTel WiFi range from 4 to 10Mbps) By March 2015, approximately 1,000 hotspots at more than 100 locations across the island will have been deployed. These numbers are expected to double by March 2016.
SingTel is also the first telco in Singapore to offer the new iPad Air 2 and iPad mini 3 with a monthly tablet top-up payment plan. All available plans will include a top-up payment of $15 per month in addition to the monthly subscription rate. This will help ease the upfront cost of purchasing an iPad and is conveniently payable through the SingTel bill.
