SingTel (Singapore Telecommunications) has launched 4G service for consumer smartphone users in Singapore.  SingTel is also introducing new Flexi and iFlexi plans with tiered data bundles from 1 July 2012 for all subscribers.

Operator is rolling out three handsets at launch HTC One XL, LG Optimus LTE and Samsung Galaxy S2 LTE. 

SingTel also plans to introduce its Priority Pass traffic priority feature for the 4G service next year. This will provide subscribers with priority for their data traffic when the network is loaded, thus ensuring smoother streaming and downloads.    

4G network rollout is expected to be complete in early 2013.  In areas where 4G has not yet been deployed, users will have 3G connectivity with download speeds of up to 42Mbps.

SingTel's new Flexi and iFlexi plans for 3G and 4G customers will offer data bundles ranging from 2GB to 12GB and higher data speeds.  Charges for data usage beyond bundled allowances have been revised to $5.35 per gigabyte. The plans will be available to all new and re-contracting customers from 1 July 2012, and will replace existing 3G Flexi and iFlexi plans.
