SINGAPORE, 31 August 2011 – To provide better mobile surfing experience to customers, M1 Limited (M1) will launch four new mobile broadband plans that will be differentiated by data bundle sizes and publish the typical speeds customers will experience, from the low price of $12 per month on 1 September 2011.

M1’s new competitively priced mobile broadband plans will be provisioned at 7.2 Mbps or 21 Mbps theoretical download speeds. However, customers will now be able to know what their mobile broadband experience is, with the publishing of typical download speeds, ranging from 0.6 to 6.7 Mbps.
