Compare SIM-Only Mobile Phone Plans
With the availability of cheap (and good) android phones such as Xiaomi, the handset rebate received from a 2-year contract plan in Singapore is no longer as appealing as before. Thus the telcos have recently introduced new SIM-only mobile phone plans to either retain existing or attract new customers.
As such plans are heavily discounted as compared to the 2-year handset contract plans, you should consider switching to a SIM-only plan (once your contract is up) to enjoy substantial savings in the long run.
For example, a StarHub 4G 4 plan will cost $62.90/month for a 2-year handset contract plan, while it will cost only $31.45/month for a SIM-only plan. This is a whopping savings of 50% a month that will result in $754.90 being saved over 2 years!
In the following table, we will compare SIM-only mobile phone plans from M1, Singtel and StarHub, that we believe will satisfy most Singapore users’ needs in terms of budget, local data and outgoing calls. Hopefully this will help you make a more well-informed decision and retain more money in your pocket!
