    Is the MOL free phone line good? Tempting deal if not for the fact that Starhub Mobile sucks

    I'm not sure if it's the first rise in 18 years. But I do remember in 1990, when I was in university, Singtel changed its pricing model from a fixed monthly fee to usage-based charges. I wrote letters to the press then, complaining this would kill our bulletin-board usage. We were using 4800bps dialup modems then.

    all my landlines call if converted to handphone call won't add up to $110/year. The increase in the subscription fee just make it more infavourable of keeping the landline. But I didn't know that we need the landline for Singtel broadband. May be should really consider MIO.

    Combining landline, internet broadband service, mobile phone, or even TV series subscription to get a cheaper subscription? Similar to what Starhub offer.

    Not that it's expensive... but with the prevalence of IP and mobile communications... is the land line still as useful?

    Only times I use my land line are when I need to call those damn services which puts you through the automated voice services...
    If you're using Singtel ADSL or MIO, you still need the land line for connection.

    For me, MIO costs more than when I add up the three tog.

    They seem like chasing customer away. Unless ur hse is not under ur control, else term it n get MOL. I been paying $100 per mth for SNBB n land line(3 mths, extra $ gone for land line). Land line hardly use, becos if SNBB, no choice only. We now mostly eating grass, don't makes us start to eat soil liao.
