SingTel sent me an SMS yesterday to inform me that all of its own postpaid mobile subscribers will get to enjoy free unlimited data bundle during Singapore’s National Day, on the 9th of August, 2014, as part of celebrating the nation’s 49th birthday. Of course, I am absolutely thrilled with it; thinking that I could watch endless YouTube on my mobile device (which never actually happened). What makes it even better was that, postpaid mobile subscribers who did not have a data plan bundle will also get to enjoy this promotion on this very day (p/s: special configuration is required)
Whilst this comes as a great news, I am kind of disappointed with Mobile One (M1) and Starhub; as there was nothing of that sort from these service providers. As a M1 subscriber myself (too), I think this could also come as a great opportunity to gain publicity, after gone through some bad events happening last year, to restore the consumers’ confidence. This goes to show that monopoly is about to return back to the Red Team, and things are going to get tougher (financially) for the Green and Orange teams.
Ok, telco aside, it’s less than 3 hours left for me to enjoy SingTel’s offer, I’m going to make the most use of it – especially, that my Starhub Home Broadband service has gone down once again…, happening as frequent as once every 3 days!
