Before cis roadshow come, still need to select a no contract sim only plan to switch to

So go for a sim only which is different from the telco you will recontract eventually to enjoy potential port in promo?

If your company has CIS and the telco went down to your company for roadshow, it worths for you to take a look.

I got quite a good offer today. Sign up for starhub $50 plan. Got additional free 800 mins talk time. With CIS, monthly cost is $40. Purchase Mate 20 X at $79 and sold it off at $840. Divide the profit by 24 mths, monthly I am like paying less than $9 for 900 mins outgoing calls, 15gb data with unlimited weekends.

Got another deal for M1 CIS roadshow too. Lite+ plan with CIS is $25.50 monthly. They give 400 mins outgoing calls and 8gb data. Bought iphone xs (64gb) for $800 and sold for $1270. Divide the profit by 24 mths. Monthly cost for the plan is less than $6.

So actually if you have the opportunity, should take a look at such plans. It is definitely cheaper than the current sim-only plans.

Yes CIS roadshow offers better discount for sure. They have special offers just for that roadshow. I am still contemplating whether to invite them in for a roadshow for my company.

U r still bounded by 2 years contract. I rather have the flexibility to switch telco anytime. Never know what’s other interesting plan telcos will come out with, esp when they are competing now.

Well, it's another option for all to consider. It's up to individual preference. But frankly speaking, even though the telcos are competing now. They are still maintaining the pricing at around $18 to $20. They just keep offering more data to attract people. Some people might not even need so much data. What I mentioned here is less than $10. If it fits your usage, why not? Having tied for 2 years for a plan less than $10 monthly is pretty good. I doubt those non-contract plans can go down to such pricing anytime soon.

Is there a way to find out whether a company is eligible for CIS benefits without being an employee of that company?

You have to check with your HR. Mine was arranged by my HR to come down to company for the roadshow.

Looks like there may be possible on high porting process done these days with all those promotion on porting going on.

From what i know the porting process is only on weekdays and so you may have to wait till coming Monday.

Do take note that there would be SMS send to inform you when the process would take place and again when completed, if any.

When you sign up for the porting from New Telco and gets the Sim card, until the day the porting completes, you're essentially paying 2 bills concurrently at the same time, so feel free to use the new line as the new billing starts from your sign up day not from porting day.

Once i ported on Saturday the Starhub staff told me the porting process will be done on Monday.
While on other weekdays and depend on the timing on signing the porting form it can be effective process on that evening 2300 hours.

While you are holding on the M1 do aware on the pro-rated calculation on the point of termination and billing cycle period.
Note that M1 would refund any excess after their final bill send to you via online.
