The mobile operators intend to introduce usage based charges for their data plans, instead of unlimited usage. Details are shown in this Business Times report:
StarHub, SingTel may revise charges to deter hefty usageI do not mind paying usage based charges. I have a plan that limits my data usage to 1G, but the actual usage is only 500 M a month. I have now upgraded to a cheaper plan that provides 16G, but I don't think that it is necessary.
