[Internet] Straits Times website to charge for access

Starting from Mar 15, 2005, Straits Times will start charging a fee for its website.

Come March 15, access to the 10-year-old online version of The Straits Times will be by subscription only. It will be only the second internet news site in Singapore to do this after The Business Times.

Three subscription plans will be available: Readers can choose to pay $15 a month, $72 for six months or $120 for a year.

Straits Times already requires registration in order to read the currently free articles. Use Bug Me Not.
