Starhub prepaid data roam. Works on 4G speeds in US and does not send traffic to Singapore - not much delay.

500mb is not the limit ya? They switch to a slower network after you exceed that amount, which I think is still workable for normal use.

T mobile or Ultra (?), i checked their coverage map, the areas I am at are covered. in theory lah huh...

Unlimited...haha...it is throttled download speeds in the States.
I also suspicious about the "unlimited" so will comb through the reviews

In USA, free wifi is everywhere. If you are not the type need to be on internet at anytime of the day. You dont really need it. Stay there 1 month before. Never use any data plan.
