i am using singtel. new sim, new phone. same old slow or non existent 3g. the network so unstable, but what i hear from other camps is the same thing. so either telco u move too it's gonna be the same ol problem.
If we paying for 12gb, we use or don't use is our business. If they want to reduce limit, then should also reduce price mah.

whatever the data limit in the plan, what is crucially for me will be whether the service improves, which is the supposed point of their reduction in packaged data so as to reduce data bandwidth hoggers...
Singtel will not dare cut to 2GB if they're not sure the other 2 will do likewise..thats commonsense for any business.
But if so, isnt it anti-competitive?...
Someone must take the risk 1st....I believe they will not be afraid to br the 1st because customer is the last thing in their list to take note of!Originally Posted by redmonsoon
In other countries, these telecommunications operators will be promptly investigated for engaging in suspected cartel activities which has happened before to a number of subsidiaries IIRC.
They reduce cap maybe to discourage user live stream while on the move. Therefore, 12gb easily hit. If they bring down to 2gb, no one dares to do so. My sis told me, she wouldnt renew anymore, ha ha!
Only Sony device mostly, haha!

Remember to cancel it if you don't want it or they will start to charge you $10.49 per month automatically whether you use it or not.
They will not inform you in advance.
The authority IDA has finally spoken out.
Telcosâ€™ tiered data plan pricing fair: IDA - Yahoo! News Singapore
Apparently, IDA agrees to the new tiered pricing plans. Singapore consumers do not have strong bargaining power.
Their equipment is not able to handle the high number of data plan users in the first place. It is not about whether the bandwidth is enough or not enough. They cannot handle concurrent data access. Just need to go Orchard Road and Tiong Bahru Plaza you will know.
There is no audit or proper governing body on whether Telcos were able to make the deliverables as promised.Originally Posted by theITguy
Let's hope the upcoming 4G will finally at least give users proper 3G speeds..
