SG BBoM iPhone App is designed specifically for use with SingTel mobile broadband plans. The rationale behind this development is, SingTel doesn’t send you an SMS or alery when your mobile broadband data charges over shoot the free limit. Overshooting the free limit even by a 100MB could cost your dearly.

According to SingTel

Excess usage will be charged at $0.01/2KB. Which means, a megabyte of data, (1024KB) will cost you about 5$.

To give you a analogy, a newyork times webpage will be around 500KB. Browse 10 such pages, you end up paying your soul to $ingTel.

SingTel already provides a web interface to check your data usage

But because it’s not a light weight page, many of us don’t bother to check our data usage everyday.

Now here comes a handy little app to check your Broadband Usage on the Go on your iPhone.

Note: This app is still under review by Apple. Will update this blog once it’s done.

Update: 5th August 2009: Apple has approved this app… Click here for the app. SingTel BBOM (iTunes Link)
