I am waiting for any of the 3 incumbents to offer $15 for less data, with reasonable talk time, SMS and free CD.

I am also waiting for that hehe. I have a older ST sim-only plan with 2gb data, but their data add on is expensive. (at $5.35/gb).

Can wait long long. All 3 telcos rather upgrade their $20-25 plans then offer lower price plans and lose revenue. I think 3+ years already since the cheapest SIM only plan starts at $20.

For now best is to stick to the MVNOs. I guess a combination of zero1 $9.90 plan and TPG should meet your needs

You are wrong.

Did you see the trend?

The lowest plan used to be $30 when there was no MVNOs.

Then slowly go down to $25 and $20 now.

Around 2015-2016 where there went any mvno I was on m1 sim only plan for $25. AFAIK it was their cheapest plan can have it for $5 less if i didn't sub to caller ID.

For those lucky enough to have the M1 mysim(s) sub lines it was automatically converted to 3gb, 100mins, 100sms free cid at only $12/mth when the main plan was switched over to the one plan.

but that is the exception... it's very hard for telcos to reduce prices... remember the time when ST classic plan was $28/mth...?? and that was supposed to be 30% "discount" off the "original" $40/mth... and every year u get "extra" 5% off until max of 50% or $20/mth...

and that was before iphone and data plans... meaning it's over 12yrs ago... but since then prices hadn't really changed much... it's still in the range of $20-30 for the plans for "normal" users...


regards,
wacky

Yeah I remember that. I was paying $33 plus caller ID.

Now it's $20 ALL in.

Well I'm just speculating judging on the trend.

Would u still be holding these lines with the number of new plans around?

My Singtel plan expire today. You guys think I can sign up and port my number to starhub today? Or better to play safe, do it tomorrow.

To play safe, you can sign-up today but ask the telco to port over tomorrow.
