Telco Battle Heats Up With M1's New Upsized Data Plan To Beat Singtel

It is on like Donkey Kong.

Like its competitor, Singtel, M1 is now offering its customers the option to upsize their new line sign-up or re-contract their mobile data at a fixed additional cost of S$5.90 per month. The new plan is available for Lite+ users and above.

Upsized Data is available at the IT Show, M1 shops and M1 Exclusive Distributors.

Here’s a peek at their new plan:

Two New mySIM Plans

The telecommunication company also announced its two new mySIM plans today—the $15 mySIM+ 15 plan that’s packed with 100 minutes of voice/video calls, 600 SMS/MMS and 1GB of mobile data; and the $20 mySIM+ 20 plan that offers 150 minutes of voice/video calls, 800 SMS/MMS and 4GB of mobile data.

Here’s what you’ve missed:

(Note that the 12-month service is different from the 1-month service)

The Mega-Corp? Or The Underdog?

If you’ve been following the news closely, you’d remember that Singtel has also launched a new add-on plan called DATAX2.  This was after MyRepublic’s latest announcement on their unlimited mobile data plan that sets its customers back at only S$60 per month.

Even though, analysts have shared their skepticism about MyRepublic’s risky and over-promised move, a part of me still wishes that they’ll hammer it out.

But, hold your horses, guys. Before you switch to a different telecommunications company, let’s wait and see how Starhub responds.
