If there’s one thing we use each and every day, it’s mobile data. In fact, there’s a good chance you’re reading this article on your mobile phone or tablet.
The demand for data is getting greater and greater as mobile technology advances and websites and apps require more and more data for the best experience. And these days, there’s a bit of a data war going on amongst telcos, which means big data plans are getting more competitively priced.
Before you rush to sign up for the plan offering the most data, do consider other perks which also impact your overall mobile experience, such as discounted phones, entertainment, roaming, network coverage, to name a few.
Here we analyse why you should consider Singtel and which Singtel plans give you the most data and perks, giving you the best value for your money.
If you need lots of data, here are Singtel’s competitive offerings
1. DATA X INFINITY – For a limited time only, this unlimited data plan is being offered at a discounted price of $29.90 (U.P. $39.90). That means you are getting unlimited data for less than $1 a day. Combo 3 and above mobile plans are eligible for a DATA x INFINITY upgrade.
2. XO 48, XO 78, XO 108 – These are 3 new plans from Singtel which were recently launched in March, and there is currently a special data promo for launch. What’s not to love about FREE data? Here are the details:
|Plan||XO 48 Plan||XO 78 Plan||XO 108 Plan|
(5GB + free 5GB)
(30GB + free 10 GB)
(50GB + free 20 GB)
|Talktime / SMS||100 min & SMS||300 min & SMS||500 min & SMS|
|Other perks||1 month of HBO GO on us (ends 31 Mar)||24 months of HBO GO on us||24 months of HBO GO on us|
|Shareable data with MobileShare?||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Extra data||18 GB for $18 if you’ve finished your data allocation|
But more importantly, on top of big data offerings, you get one of the best mobile experiences on Singtel because of the full service telco offerings they have (which many other telcos may not).
- Huge discounts on the latest phones
- The best entertainment (Game of Thrones!)
- MobileShare – the option to share your big data with family and friends
- Data-free music streaming with Spotify and Apple Music
- Readyroam, to name a few
These lifestyle perks can also help you save money in the long run.
Huge smartphone discounts
Singtel XO plans, on top of offering big allowances for data, are also very generous when it comes to handset discounts. Many SIM Only big data plans don’t offer discounts on these latest models, so you enjoy the best of both worlds with XO plans.
This is particularly important if you want to get your hands on the latest models like the Samsung Galaxy S10 or iPhone XS Max. There are even sexy phones such as the Google Pixel 3, Samsung Note 9 going at $0 on the XO plans.

What’s more, only with Singtel do you enjoy data-free and ad-free streaming. Why say no to music on the go without eating into your data allowance?
MobileShare lets you share data with friends and family. This is a great option for families with kids who are not ready to have their own mobile data plan, or friends who want the option to share a huge data bundle and enjoy cost savings.
