Singapore Mobile Plans Comparison: The Data War of 2016

Looking for a new mobile plan in Singapore now, you are in luck. As the battle rages on, consumers in Singapore can reap the benefits of increasing mobile data at insanely low costs.

When MyRepublic told the world of its plans to give off incredibly cheap $8/month plans with 2GB of data. Competitors from our oligopoly of Starhub, M1 and Singtel began to offer data bundle upsizes for miniscule costs.

As the war ensues, let’s take a look at which of these plans are the best right now.

Unfortunately, if you are like me and you just renewed your plan last month, these Telcos are not extending the olive branch and giving you more data.
