StarHub launches NFC transit SIM for contactless payment

It’s waiving the $5 EZ-Link purse fee, too.

StarHub has announced it is also launching near field communication (NFC) transit SIM cards that will allow equip subscribers’ mobile devices with fare payment capabilities.

Starting 2 April, StarHub customers can purchase the new NFC transit SIM at any StarHub outlet.

StarHub notes its NFC transit SIM costs the same as a regular SIM. A new $37.45 SIM costs a one-time fee of $37.45, while a SIM replacement costs $26.75.

As a launch promotion, the telco company is waiving the NFC EZ-Link purse fee of $5 until further notice.

"This development is a step in the right direction towards stimulating digital commerce growth in Singapore,” commented Yeong Mun-Ling, Head of Business Strategy, StarHub.

“Our world is becoming increasingly digital, and we are looking forward to meeting the needs of our mobile customers, who want to do more with their smartphones,” she added.
