It’s that time of year again — not Christmas, but the annual IT Show. And IT Show 2019 (7 to 10 March at Suntec Convention Centre) promises to be well worth checking out thanks to some serious deals.
If you’re an IT Show newbie, know that it’s totally worthwhile braving the crowds, as this is the one place where electronic brands, telcos and IT vendors are forced to compete with each other and offer their best deals.
One telco to look out for is Singtel, who was recently awarded the best service provider in the Mobile Service, Fibre Broadband and Pay TV categories at the HardwareZone Tech Awards 2019. Here are some of the deals Singtel will be offering at this year’s IT Show.
Hate receiving that SMS which warns that you’ve busted your data allowance for the month? With an XO Plan, you can have the best of both worlds – huge data allowance plus the latest handsets so that you can stream and download to your heart’s content on your mobile devices without worrying about using too much data.
Singtel has updated its XO plans to bring you a hell lot of data at affordable prices. Now, when you get the 40GB XO 78 plan, you receive a FREE Huawei Mate 20. In addition, whenever you sign up for an 70GB XO 108 Plan and above, you enjoy 24 months of complimentary HBO GO, which you can use on any mobile device.
Prefer SIM-Only plans? There’s no better time than the present to get one, as Singtel is offering 20GB of data at a mere $20/month, as well as 150 minutes talk-time and 500 SMSes.
There’s more! SIM-Only plans qualify for a wide range of flagship phones costing $0 upfront.
Other perks for SIM-only plans include:
- Easy monthly payments without having to use a credit card
- Customisable add-ons such as ReadyRoam, Spotify and Singtel Newsstand
- The ability to upsize data, talktime or SMS
- 6 free months of Apple Music
- 3 free months of HOOQ or Viu Premium

Fibre + TV
Now’s probably the best time to sign up for SingtelTV.

Simply show your existing cable bill and there’s something installed for everyone.
Mobile + fibre + TV bundle
Of course, you can usually save money by looking for a bundle that includes mobile, fibre and TV.
Singtel’s bundle slashes your mobile subscription by up to 30% and also gets you perks, including free local data on Sundays and a fee waiver on annual phone upgrades.
Samsung Connect Home Bundles
Does your home come equipped with smarthome capabilities? Put them to good use with a stable fibre network.
At the IT Show, the Samsung Connect Home Bundle costs only $10/month (down from $12/month) and gives you access to a pair of Samsung Connect Home WiFi Mesh with a free multi-purpose sensor (worth $68). This device gives you strong wifi coverage over every inch of your home.
There’s also the Samsung SmartCam bundle. For $17.90/month (usually $19.90/month), you get both Samsung Connect Home and SmartCam.
SmartCam enables you to put your home under surveillance thanks to motion-triggered video clips and motion notification, as well as 10GB of cloud storage so you can store your video recordings. Now the kids won’t be able to get out of doing their homework….
