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.
that happened only ONCE... more often the deals get better over time...

moreover that was when u only have the 3 traffic lights telcos around... and we all know they basically copy each other one and know that there is no point to cut throat,,,

You need just one to screw the market, the rest will follow.

it is...

but we have more than the 3 traffic lights telcos now right...?? so the competition is stronger than ever...

unless TPG and all the other MVNO decided to cooperate with the traffic light telcos to form new cartel... otherwise dun think anyone would wanna increase price or reduce data for the plans liao and risk losing customers...

Using a similar one now when they had 11gb promo, damn worth it for the price with 200mins talk time. Doesnt come with SMS but who uses that now, otherwise its pay per use at $0.05/SMS only.

Is there any way to port from circlelife to singtel? Singtel only allow to port from starhub or M1.
Can temporarily port to m1 for a month then to singtel?

my wife n i use a combination of 150-200min n 2.5gb per month
current singtel contract ended but still pay $59/mth (300 talk time n 3gb)

i port to m1 sim20 (12mth) (add my wife supplementary $12) + $5 (+100 talk)
do i i have to pay supplementary $5 caller id?
if need pay, maybe i sign 2x m1 sim20 (12mth) more worth?

if i port my $29 starhub fibre to m1 fibre, got multi service saver?

I did similar to u; canx main & sub lines; port into 2x SIM only plan.

M1 sub line, yes u need to pay $5 call ID... total of 12+5 =$17 / months 👎

If u don’t need the handset, better to get 2x Sim;15GB + 800mins talk time + ...

my wife n i use a combination of 150-200min n 2.5gb per month
current singtel contract ended but still pay $59/mth (300 talk time n 3gb)

i port to m1 sim20 (12mth) (add my wife supplementary)
do i i have to pay supplementary $5 caller id?
if need pay, maybe i sign 2x m1 sim20 (12mth) more worth?

Can try zero1 9.9 plan. But customer service no good.

As far as I know they should all support number porting. For example, MyRepublic is actually StarHub (I ported a MyRepublic SIM to StarHub and was told this). We all know that Circles Life uses M1.
