Global banking services? (SG to UK)

Hi All,

Ive been using citibank as my global bank, but they recently increased the monthly fee from 8gbp to 15gbp.
Im now looking for a new service and wondered if anyone here has any reccomendations for services that have good fee's and exchange rates?
Is anyone using the HSBC service?

Thanks.

Lol? Its pretty common to have to upgrade centre speaker on a surround sound system due to problems hearing dialogue, standard centre speakers are rarely good enough, depends what you pay though of course
