Mobile Coverage on the East Coast

Postby Byrchwood » Wed, 25 Feb 2009 6:20 pm

Can anyone give me some information on which company to use on the East Coast. We have done some comparison with Sing Tel & M1 & M1 seem to have the better plan but I have heard that it has limited coverage on the East Coast.

I thought the same but someone from my hubbys work said M1 did not have good coverage on the East Coast!! We have the same problem here in Melbourne with some carriers.

Sounds bizarre to me. There are places here and there in Singapore where some operators have bad coverage (eg. M1 doesn't work properly in my apartment!), but 99.99% of the time all operators work fine anywhere -- and I've used all three all over the island in my years here.

M1 should work fine. I am assuming by the east coast you are referring to the marine parade area. I've got friends using M1, Singtel and Starhub and all 3 seem to work fine in that area.

I will be moving to Amber Gardens Rd.. We still have not got a SIM card as we were waiting for our Green Card to arrive. M1 is looking good so far though! Hope it works...

I don't see why not as Amber Gardens is not exactly "ulu" (out of the way, in the sticks etc).
