I find M1 has the worst coverage. Was at the Yishun Bus Interchange, couldn't even load pages... No problem with starhub.

Spotty coverage in Beach Road area too.

Have they signed on more customers than they can handle due to their cheap pricing?

Waiting for contract to end... I'll jump.
it depends on area. e other day my colleague had to join my m1 hotspot cos his StarHub data canít load a single thing. At Tampines.

Question

Likewise, I was a Circles.Life (leverage on M1 network) user for almost 1 year.

Besides the usual poor signal coverage along Circle/NE Line, no major signal coverage issues.



the $0/mth plan from CircleLife ?.........is it good ?

thinking of switching from M1...........

I got similar experience as you, most toilets I went, m1 no network. No issue with Singtel or starhub.

seriously is it not ALL M1 users are affected by their slow and even no 4G inside malls and etc?
besides those like me tied down by a one yr contract, still got pple wanna consider M1 now?

i can't even whatsapp in the malls' toilet.

I was told by Giga support that they do provide roaming SMS for receiving OTP.

But I haven't been oveseas since switching to Giga so can't confirm.

Generally, I prefer to rent Wi-Fi router when going overseas, keeping in contact via msg apps and VOIP.
In the past, I used to buy a foreign SIM if I am overseas.

Nowadays, I just subscribe to Singtel or Starhub data roaming plan. Don't need to change SIM.

Starhub is $5 per 1GB for 3 days
Singtel is $5 per 1GB for 7 days

I think $0 plan no longer available, you should check their website. Now only showing $5 plan.

https://circlesasiasupport.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004527293-What-is-the-0-mo-Flexi-Plan-DISCONTINUED-?mobile_site=true

Anyways, you do know that circles life is using M1 network right ?

For the amount of data I need when traveling, more cost effective to rent wifi router with unlimited data.

Roaming plans are super ex for some countries. Unless you can activate something like m1 data passport for example.

I don't use a lot of data in overseas.

Hotels got free WIFI.

Just need some data for communication purposes.

So $5 is cheaper for me.
