so m1 actually gives 10GB to 20GB extra for their mysim plans. but how long will they continue to give these extra GB??

they can stop anytime? or once sign contract means they have to keep giving?
Surely you are aware that the other 2 telcos are doing the same as well right? For SIM only plans, Singtel gives a 15GB data for recontract and Starhub gives 13GB + weekend unlimited data. So as long as the other two telcos are giving, M1 will not stop.

Why think so much? Just enjoy it lah... and last year this time Sinktel gave me a "generous" bonus of +3 GB of data in exchange for a 12 months contract

These 10GB or more extra are of promotional offer by all Telco.

Promotional offer can be changed anytime as they like unless otherwise stated on the promotion period.

But if you sign up while on promotion then it would last till the contract end or terminated.

Handset discount is available as long as you sign up the CIS plan. But port from Zero1 might not get the free 3gb bonus as Zero1 using SingTel network. You can try go SingTel shop to ask. I know online store confirm cannot.

exactly the reason I went to circle life, its a non-contract plan and +500mb/6 mths. So after every round of contract my data just get more and more. I also dont need more than current data.

Unless telco continue to have data war or by next year or two, you are stuck to telco mercy and wrecking your brain over mini savings or what telco have to offer. Too much hassle.

The first telco to remove "free" data will lose half their customer overnight.

Large data plans are here to stay.

Wouldn't use the term minor savings in my case; saved more than $300 yearly jumping from Red to Orange while getting 3x more data.

But seriously, why do we even worry about 12 months later whether if telcos will continue giving "free" data? If they don't, simply port over to another provider.....

Yeah I agree too, If any of them remove their promotion data, current customers on 12mth contract will most likely flip table and be more willing to port out for better offers.

Also cost of data is going down, other countries gave very generous data bundle. Moreover, with TPG giving very generous data, guess they will find a way to tackle the TPG.

Historically this happened before, all 3 telcos offering 12gb data on 3g network, then they all cut down to 2gb data bundle on 4g network. we are now again at the juncture i.e. 5g network is in pipeline very soon with much lesser starting data bundle.

5G not happening as soon as we thought. Will we use Huawei? Or we go for the half baked vendors who are deemed secured? Your guess as good as mine. Not forgetting now we have Circles.Life / Zero / My Republic / TPG and I think a few more vendors to choose from when we eventually migrate to 5G.

Meantime, I am enjoying my M1 16GB data plan for $20 monthly, savings of $25 each month from my previous plan with just 3+3GB data.

Additional 8GB data per month for 12 months for new applicants of M1 citibank card ( those who don't have citibank credit card ).

https://www.m1.com.sg/-/media/Files/...tupto96gb-tncs

So it could be 15Gb + 8Gb = 23Gb per month.

Plus 10% citi rebate off bill

It's not 10%. It's up to 10%. Most people whose bill is under $100 is only 0.5% if not wrong.

Circle life cost more than M1 mysim20, but offer more data and like you said, no contract.

But have to depend on each user case. I use 5-6GB per month now so 15GB is more than enough for me. S$20 for M1 settle everything for me. It's 12 month contract but S$20 everything in sounds like a better deal for me.

I think circle life no more $120 cash back if u port your number to them, correct me if im wrong.

500MB for 6mth is too little and have to wait too long... effectively u end up "sign" contract for 2yrs just to get 2GB free... some more it's not like u get the 2GB for these 2yrs... basically u only get extra data when u decide to stay with them for long time...

as for 1yr contract... u get alot more data free and UPFRONT... 1yr contract is not too long... if telcos continue to have data or price war u can always hop to a diff telco after 1yr... very fast 1yr will be over...

so if u ask me... between the two schemes above... the first one bo hua la...


regards,
wacky
