PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Tableau Software has created an interactive table/graph that examines data rates for the iPad, carrier-by-carrier. The results are interesting. As you might expect, data rates from AT&T in the US are near the top of the list, but those unlucky souls in France have to pay twice what AT&T users do. Residents of Singapore may not be allowed to chew gum, but they can pay as little as $.51 per Gigabyte for wireless data.

You can chew gum in Singapore. You just have to show an ID and not be a minor to buy it.

I am pretty sure that the chewing gum you are talking about is with nicotine (for weaning off smoking).

What is the matter with non-Singaporeans and chewing gum? It may sound outrageous to outsiders, but Singaporeans have become used to not having chewing gum, and it is not like we won't ever get to chew -- Singaporeans go on overseas holidays frequently and will usually satisfy their curiosities then.

EDIT: Back on topic, it is very cheap and easy to provide any service in Singapore due to its minuscule size. Hence it is not surprising, this result.
