Singtel

Singtel's booth at Level 6 was abuzz with shoppers checking out mobile and broadband promos. Remember to get your queue ticket if you plan to purchase or subscribe any of Singtel's products or services.



Singtel's 15Mbps mio Home plan is going for $64.90 per month. It also comes with a free 1.5Mbps mobile broadband plan with any mio Home subscription. On top of that, get 20 percent off a Panasonic Twin DECT phone (worth $89) when you sign up for any mio Home plan at the PC Show.



Thinking of snagging a Samsung Galaxy S? The industrious Android phone is yours for $238 with the 3G Flexi Lite AMPed plan. PC Show exclusives include a Samsung Bluetooth headset and Angry Bird plush toy.



If you are making the switch to fibre, you might want to checkout Singtel's fibre plans. The 100Mbps and 150Mbps (download rates) plans are priced at $69.90 and $85.90 respectively. Sign up during the show and you also get to enjoy a 1-month free subscription to Singtel's Express Portal.



Tablets from major brands are covered by Singtel as well. Spotted at the PC Show are deals involving the HTC Flyer and Motorola Xoom. Both Android tablets are priced at $499 if you subscribe to Singtel's 7.2Mbps Mobile Broadband plan at $40 per month.

StarHub

Sign a 2-year contract with StarHub under its SmartSurf 300 plan, and you can purchase the LG Optimus Black for just $48. This Android 2.2 smartphone will be upgradeable to Android 2.3, and comes with a LG's Nova display for enhanced brightness.



More dual-core smartphones are spotted, and StarHub is offering the Motorola Atrix with its multimedia dock for $148. All you have to do is sign up for a SmartSurf 700 plan for 2 years.


Tablets are really making its presence felt, and the first tablet to use Google's Android 3.0, the Motorola Xoom, is subsidized by StarHub with a 2-year plan for its 7.2Mbps mobile broadband plan at $47.29 per month. And that lets you purchase the Motorola Xoom at $348 only.

Yes, I was told that as well, but for my case I am already with maxonline, so they can use back my current digital phone line.

I still feel very much cheated by the staffs in Suntec and also the CSO at SH hotline. They told me that only recontract at Suntec then can waive the installation and activation fees($53.50 + $32.10).
Recontract over the phone or at other retail will need to pay the $85.60.

To my HORROR, just double check the flyers from OpenNet, the $85.60 will be waived. SO I QUEUED FOR 4 HOURS BECAUSE I WAS MISLEADED BY THE STAFFS FROM SH ON THE "SAVINGS".

u seem so blur n type so much senseless issue?

I never switch.
I am currently on SH maxonline with free digital home line.
I just ask them to use back my current digital home line number when I signed up for the Fibre BB.
