I had a pretty terrible experience with M1 previously and I knew I had to start my search for a new telco after a recent spam of angry tweets.
But I swear I wasn’t overreacting in any way!! I’ve always been a loyal customer of M1, it being the only telecom I used since purchasing my first mobile. I never had any issues with M1 and the quality of their service until I moved to Toa Payoh. Honestly speaking I never thought I would experience problems with reception in TOA PAYOH?!
I even had problems receiving a signal in my own house… I just brushed it off thinking that it wouldn’t be much of an issue in the long run, but nothing really changed a few months down the road. So I decided to give M1 a call to inquire about the poor reception in my area. They told me that the problem was because I was in a newly developed HDB block and the signal was not able to reach the area. M1 assured me that the problem would be resolved in a couple of weeks, but it’s been 2 years.. and no change.
Made a trip down to SingTel after hearing how trouble-free it is from my friends and found out about the Youth Plan offered by SingTel which is a life-saver if you are a student like me!
A few weeks into my new plan and all I can say is .. It is so awesome?!?!?!!? The signal now has dramatically improved and considering that I still get a strong signal in school is a total plus point! Since it’s pretty much impossible to get an actual connection in CJ! Compared to the previous plan I was contracted with, I honestly believe that SingTel caters specifically to the youths! They know what exactly what we want! Which is more DATA and FREE STUFF *_*
Compared to the measly 2GB I had to survive on previously, this is complete heaven. Twitter/Insta/YouTube being able to load in a matter of seconds! I now no longer have to deal with waiting for my god damn video to load on Youtube and worry about exceeding my data each month when I stream and surf videos and shop online …
Here’s a comparison to what SingTel has to offer (1st 2 columns) compared to the other telcos! It only takes a glance to who is the clear winner here! To break down in words, SingTel is currently offering an additional 10% discount off your monthly bill and an additional 1 GB worth of data and no data charge when you use Amped!
But that’s not all!
LAST BUT NO LEAST!!!!!!!! If you sign up for a new line under my name:
YOU WILL GET (Only for LITE and VALUE plan) :
> $50 off all handsets (excl iPhone) on Youth Plan sign ups
> FREE 2GB additional data with which means 5GB in total if you sign up for the Lite plan and 6GB when you sign up for the Value Plan l!!! (SO WORTH IT ?!)
