Maybe competition from the "Next Generation National Broadband Network" where smaller players can come in.

"....a joint roll out plan towards achieving 60 per cent coverage of all residential premises and non-residential buildings by end 2010, and 95 per cent of all residential premises and non-residential buildings by 2012."

Best is to remain status-quo and avoid contracts.

The 30% off is for you now or discount for you?

My Chinese Value Pack also got that discount but, after calculating the discount, they are still the same price as what I am holding. For existing customer, discount for a yr and then after that, shoot up. Plain stupid. :thumbsd:

its not about contracts, since i'm not bounded hence this kinda crap...

if there's contract, they won't change the plans like that.

If you're not bounded, you're free to switch but since nobody is offering, you're effectively stuck. But that doesn't mean in the near future, no one else is going to offer sometime that you require which entices you to switch, that's where the contracts comes in.

I would think that with the "Next Gen NBN" bandwidth, there will be more PayTV operators.

As a SH user, I don't feel valued. To me, the SH broadband page seems to value NEW subscribers. At least in the Singnet broadband page, there is a link for OLD subscriber to re-contract. Maybe I never look hard enough on the SH page. :bsmilie:
