Singapore Channel News Asia reports that there is a new ruling from March 2010. Those who apply for or renew contract for fixed line, mobile or broadband service cannot be locked into the contract for more than 24 months.

In addition, those who terminate their contracts before the end of their contract period will no longer have to pay fixed early termination charges. Instead, they will see these charges decrease over time on a month-by-month basis as they serve out their contract.
