Singtel launches 5G roaming to give customers a first taste of a powerful 5G experience both at home and abroad.
To kick off the launch, Singtel, as a long-time supporter of Team Singapore, is sponsoring 5G connectivity for its partner athletes to stay connected with their loved ones and fans as they represent the nation at the Tokyo Olympics.
Singtel 5G customers on 5G NOW or 5G XO Plus plans will be the first in Singapore to enjoy 5G roaming. This is supported on existing 4G SIM cards but the service is available only on select compatible 5G handsets
Currently, 5G roaming has been enabled in 13 destinations through 18 global partner telcos, including:
- Hong Kong
- South Korea
More destinations will be added in the coming months.
Singtel accelerated its 5G rollout during the year, deploying over a thousand 5G sites across Singapore and was the only telco to rollout indoor 5G with coverage in popular malls such as VivoCity and Ngee Ann City.
It has teamed up with its official 5G SA launch partner, Samsung, to allow selected customers to experience firsthand the supercharged connectivity of Singtel’s 5G SA network on Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra 5G handsets.
To catch the live action from the Tokyo Olympics, Singtel customers can tune in to all 14 Mediacorp channels for free on Singtel TV CH 21-34 and Singtel TV GO. It is also available on Singtel CAST to all consumers, including non-Singtel customers.
