StarHub to offer Singapore's first microSIM card

New product compatible with its mobile broadband service that gives Internet access at up to 7.2Mbps.

StarHub announced that it has fully tested the compatibility of the microSIM card with its mobile broadband service, and is making the product available to support any future mobile devices that use such SIM card format, according to a Starhub report.

"As device makers seek to build slimmer and more compact wireless devices, the usage of microSIM card is expected to become popular in the future. StarHub wants to be ready today to support this anticipated trend," said Mr Chan Kin Hung, StarHub’s Head of Products and Solutions. "StarHub has extensively tested the compatibility of the microSIM card for the connection to its industry-leading mobile broadband network, and are excited to make available the product to our customers who constantly demand the best technologies and services that support the latest mobile devices."

The microSIM card today features a special dual usage design. It can be used as a normal SIM card for an existing mobile device. To fit it in a device made for the MicroSIM card format, the customer simply snaps out the “heart” of the SIM card.

StarHub’s microSIM card provides mobile Internet access at up to 7.2Mbps from a dongle, and is available on its MaxMobile Ultimate plan from 29 May 2010.
