How is Starhub’s reception and signal coverage? I heard it’s the worst among the 3 telcos
Starhub's network is definitely less superior than Singtel.

My wife is on Starhub and I am on Singtel.

We are both using Pixel phones and SimplyGo. She has some trouble when tapping the phone.

For my case, 100% success with SimplyGo so far.

What is the deal offered to u by ST?

If u using Google Pay for tapping, then data network is likely not a cause for the issues she encountered. Google Pay can work without network, however, for limited number of transactions. Maybe look at the protective cover she is using.

The same deal as discussed above.

Yeah seems you are right about the Google Pay.

Actually I am quite new to this Google Pay. I have only started using it recently.

My current plan is Combo 2 with Data x 3, total 6GB per month. Less then 200 mins of talk time.

Have been with ST for many years. So know their network is strong even at Tuas.

I think I know what I need. Thanks.

I think a lot of older / less tech savvy people all fall into the same trap. They sign phone contract that are overkill for their uses or they use prepaid and can't really use data. I estimate 70% of people who are currently on phone contracts are better off with a SIM only plan.

Sorry, I couldn't find anything on SimplyGo Telco...only about Transitlink, payment methods.

What are its offers?

Thanks.

Not exactly, some phone plans only come with 2GB. They are likely tempted by the subsidised phone price.

I am paying $54 per month with Data x 3 subscription. How to get better deals with Singtel SIM-only plan ? I looked through the plans and hoping for better deals through SMS. Else the $15 for 20GB and paying extra $5.35 for caller ID get only 150 mins talk time and 500 SMS.

For those who are interested, try spam the following Singtel telesales number.

Be prepared for long wait, yesterday I have to wait 20 min on the line.

There is also a free subscription to entertainment.

MyRepublic just launched a new Unlimited plan, unlimited data/sms/mins at $48/mth.

3GB/day, throttled speed thereafter.

that's precisely the trap!! the trap is the lure of "subsidized" phone prices where u can actually save more $$$ in the long run if you go for SIM-only plan...

the "subsidized" phone prices is more like making you pay the FULL phone (+ commission) in instalments...

if u only need 2GB... can always get $8 plan from redone or something... and buy the phone from 3rd party... saves more $$$...

Your offer is better than mine in March which is without the free minutes and SMS, but still fine for me as I seldom make call and SMS, my bill is between $20 to $23, still better than previously paying $4x, hopefully by next March SingTel will offer the same or better renewal deal.
