Stay social while Social Distancing with GOMO!

Get 10GB for FREE when you use promo code: WORKFROMHOME from now till 17 Apr 2020. That’s 30GB, 300 SMS, 300 mins for $20 for the first 35 days. Plus, you’d get the SIM card delivered to you for free, so you can stay in and stay safe.

There’s currently fierce competition amongst SIM Only providers, which means that for consumers, even better value can now be had from SIM Only plans.

When choosing a SIM Only plan, going for the cheapest plan without paying attention to what you’re actually getting isn’t always the smartest thing to do. That’s because many plans come with terms and conditions that you might not be aware of, as we mentioned in a previous article.

That’s where GOMO by Singtel comes in. This no contract SIM Only plan was built to be simple and deliver strong value. And now, it has gotten even better with data roaming.


What you get with Singtel’s GOMO Plan

Singtel’s GOMO is a no-contract, all digital SIM Only Plan with a very affordable price of $20 a month. This gets you 20 GB of data, 200 minutes of talktime and 200 SMSes. You also get free Caller ID and free incoming calls, and free SIM card delivery (same day delivery if you purchase before 10.30am).

You can purchase a $10 add-on which gives you 10 more GB of data, 100 more minutes of talktime and 100 SMSes.

In terms of price alone, GOMO is the most affordable plan in the market right now, since Circles Life only gives you a discount if you port over your number.

In terms of normal usage, 20GB is a lot of data. With 20GB a month, you can surf the Internet, read and watch videos to your heart’s content without ever having to worry about exceeding your data.

If you know you would not need more than that, it’s probably wise not to pay extra for more.

GOMO also comes with lifestyle perks. Termed as ‘GOMO Gifts’, GOMO has been giving little surprises such as GOJEK & Shopee vouchers, plus exclusive 1-for-1 Hungrygowhere deals for their users.

Got a problem? You can get help immediately with Singtel’s 24/7 live chat. We mean you can even get customer service in the wee hours of the morning at 4am.

Signing up for GOMO by Singtel is very easy thanks to free same day delivery, which means you can receive your new SIM card almost immediately. Credit and debit card payment is accepted.


GOMO’s New Roaming Add-on

One of GOMO’s recent upgrades is a new and affordable roaming feature to let you Get Out of Singapore more often.

Now, for $10, you get 1 GB of data to use for 10 days in 10 popular destinations across Asia.

No need to worry about buying a local SIM card when you reach your holiday destination. With GOMO’s roaming plan, all you have to do is activate a Data Roaming Pump before your departure and you can whip out your phone to use once you land. This add-on can be activated the day before or on the day of travel, so you can do non-stop Instagram live videos or real time Instagram stories from the top of Mount Fuji!

GOMO by Singtel has also launched its Roam Like A Local data plans. This means that for the first time, users can get loads of data at local data prices, with the convenience of a data roaming plan. i.e. up to 100GB in Thailand, 15GB in Philippines, and 10GB in Indonesia, from as low as just $5.

Built on a strong foundation

At the end of the day, there’s nothing stopping other providers from going to an all-out price war and offering plans and services that are dirt cheap. But one thing that is not going to change is the foundation on which these services are built on.

A cheap or expensive plan doesn’t make a network any better, but what any consumer expects when they pay for one is a certain level of reliability and excellence. GOMO is backed by Singtel’s 4G network. For all that’s said and done, Singtel was recently awarded the fastest 4G peak throughput speeds, which makes it one of the most reliable networks in Singapore.

Network coverage is something often taken for granted until we encounter a spotty connection, but we’ve heard enough complaints to know the importance of a stable network.

Based on the latest Tutela Annual report, Singtel topped the competition in with the fastest download speeds.

The combination of Singtel’s strong infrastructure and a very competitive pricing is a very good reason why GOMO has gotten so much attention since its launch.
