It provides free Wi-Fi in communal areas, and offers paid Wi-Fi services at higher speeds to those looking to stay connected beyond the shared space.

Under this new partnership with M1, Geenet’s plan will include mobile services, which comprise of data, SMS, local and international calls.

Geenet did not share further details on its mobile plans.

With the expansion of mobile services, it makes Geenet the first MVNO in Singapore to offer both Wi-Fi and mobile services specifically for dormitory residents.

This new offering gives its customers greater flexibility in choosing their Wi-Fi and mobile plans, providing options that can be customised to suit their preferences.

“We are supportive of MVNOs that bring about new and unique value propositions. By providing a suitable platform and low barriers to entry, we are able to help niche operators come onboard with us,” said Lee Kok Chew, Chief Financial Officer of M1.

“With Geenet’s prominent market presence in the dormitory residents segment, we can tap onto their existing market presence to reach out to a new group of customers and provide them with an enhanced mobile service experience. We look forward to working closely with Geenet to forge a successful MVNO partnership.”
