i used wifi at home but my complaint is how come reception can be so bad on my phone whenever i'm at home? shouldn't telco ensure the service level on what a phone should basically do-that is to be able to receive and make calls.
wow,these few days i start to see lte Inside my hse! previously i can only get lte at void deck and edge inside house. However,calls reception inside hse still sucks....still can see missed call alerts,sudden loss of network while playing games,failure to call out at times in first try,etc.

My girlfriend was telling me the other day that while her friend and her iPhones were both on Singtel, her friend's iPhone 4S had no problem surfing the Internet whereas her iPhone 5 were having problems.

Both of them were at the same spot and had the same numbers of 3G signal bars. My girlfriend didn't switch on LTE as well.

after tons of complains online, Singtel still dilly dally and gave only diplomatic replies like "looking into increasing capacity"...blah blah blah......they need a shocker like SMRT incidents before they wake up and do something about it.....

M1 and Starhub must be laughing now...haha

I'm extremely pissed with SingTel. Sadly my aunt is one of their supporters...

Once, her iPhone cannot receive data and SMS, but can call. I call ST and the Pinoy pick up (my aunt's english is quite poor). Ask me take out card and try it on another iPhone. Tried it on mine also cannot work.

Pinoy said reset setting and reset iPhone. Still no use. Then he ask me to BLOW the microSIM. I told him how can blow, he scolded me over the phone. What... Not cooperative how I help yuuu??!? You are asking me for help!! Bla bla. WTF man. I went to some private corner and scolded the **** out of him. Stupid idiot. Quarreled for almost 1/2 hour.

Then he call back 1/2 hour later say SIM card fault. Ask me go ST shop replace. Replace alr, data can receive but STILL no SMS. Call up again and complain. Replace another time.

Horrible service, horrible quality. 3G speed also freaking jialat. Luckily my aunt sign during 12GB period. Stupid ST charging $39/ month for blood sucking service. Best 3G? Yeah, I really believe that.

I know starhub 3G network is also subject to complains here in HWZ.

So does that mean M1 is the best now in terms of 3G coverage?

So far M1 not much probs la... But there is one part of SLE which cause the data to jump back to 2G. Near Yishun exit I think.

Aiya. Best is to stay with the telco you feel most comfortable with. If you're happy with ST, stick with them. Don't change unnecessarily.

aiya, i think stick with singtel also no point...because singtel is the one that does not have rewards point iirc.

as for M1, could it be because they have the smallest subscriber base, hence that's why lesser 3G network congestion?

The stick with comfortable carrier part is for everyone. As a person who has used ALL 3 carriers before, stick with one you feel that serves you best.

Probably like what you said, maybe because less people use M1 3G... That's why less congestion. But if you go by that logic StarHub supposed to have better 3G than SingTel, but apparently that's not the case for most of us.

So far I use M1 no prob la... But M1 reward points is useless unless you have many lines. I have 6 lines (4 mobile, 1 home, 1 fibre) and one month I can earn about 120pts. M1 rewards at least 1,400 each (but movie tickets is only 400 IIRC). If you only have 1 line under M1, then no point going for rewards.

I join M1 largely due to multiline saver. Last time when I was with ST I paid $75 for 25 Mbps Internet, $45 for iPhone plan and $20+ for land line. Now with M1 6 lines I'm only paying max $130, plus I get 100 Mbps fibre.
