Probably if I need to travel multiple countries , then I consider the $25 data passport.

But there are some questions
$10 data passport include Taiwan, Hong Kong.
$25 data passport include Japan, South Korea & China.

So if I want to travel to Macau -> Hongkong -> China.
Or Taiwan & China.

Do I need to purchase both $10+$25 data passport?

So far, only two options local Sim or data passport?
Any third option that is mid range price & more convenience
There are 2 types of data passport; single location and multiple.

The $10 package single location package will cost you $25 if you intend to use it for all ASEAN countries while the normally $25 package for single Asian country will cost $50 for use in multiple Asian countries.

Alternatively, you may wish to consider Starhub Prepaid card as they offer very competitive data packages for roaming with good spread of countries covered. Note overseas local calls not included.

Makes me laughed... HK SIM card? spare phone? Portable wifi?

So why not just use my 10GB data from M1 for only $25? Shake head.... why do something simple when one can come up with a complicated way....
yes shake head too, its based on individual usage. Your $25-50/mth data passport is only for frequent/long term travellers. Not for ppl who just want a short few days to a week trip to nearby countries every once in awhile.

You have a comprehension issue.

I must have repeated more than 3 times in my posts that each individual has different needs so go ahead to select the plan that suits the individual.

If someone wish to spend $25 for a ONE day data passport because it's convenient, so be it. Why do you insist otherwise?

Once you reach the contact us page, they will queue you.

You will see the rough estimated time

The page is like dead but actually its really running. I waited 13mins to have a 3 mins chat before I got cut. My questions was asked but during the answering portion, they say thank you and went dead silent.......

Was wondering if there is anyone who will exceed the "free weekend unlimited" data of 10GB/per day, thereafter throttle to 1mbps.

10GB seems alot

The 10GB limit is just to weed out those who abuse the privilege and clog up the network for the rest of us. For everyone else, use all you want and you will hardly get near the fre 20GB for weekend limit.

if compared to starhub, then I don't think look very normal.. even TPG free SIM faster than that.

I am using a Huawei nova 3i and am enjoying the Volte. However because this phone itself is quite laggy, I don't know if its causing my Internet slow, or m1 really slow

That's odd, I'm getting much higher speeds than this normally on M1 network.

all along has been,

one weekend day = 10gb.. after 10gb speed will be throttled..

one month = 4 weeks = 8 weekend days = 80gb LTE speed data.
