best TV, mobile, internet package - Offers and operator?

Post by jbsing » Sat, 05 May 2012 10:53 pm

Hi, who's offers the best integrated TV, home landline, mobile and internet package in singapore? Also, is it wise to separate a mobile package from TV, landline and mobile phone package? Thanks

Keep it all together unless your company is paying your mobile or something.

Starhub and Singtel have pretty comparable packages. If (non-mobile) Internet quality is important and your building does NOT have fiber, Starhub will be better for Internet. For TV, it comes down to the channels you want to watch. Singtel has all of the good sports. Starhub has everything else.

For mobile quality, everything on the island sucks third-world badly. Singtel sucks the least.

I'm not sure who is the best but I've got Starhub and don't really have any complaints with them. But to be honest I watch a lot less t.v. now since arriving here.

The internet seems faster and goes down less often than what I used to have in the UK so am happy enough with that.

Could you please tell me what package you have and how much does your integrated package come to per month?
Thanks

Don't think anyone can claim to be the best.

If you love sports like football and ESPN MioTV is the only choice for now. It will change soon.

Other channels Starhub probably is better now but again as exclusivity is going to end soon, all will change in a couple of years.

For mobile, SingTel, Starhub and M1 are all better in certain areas of Singapore and worst at other ares so there is never the best (despite Singapore being so small).

Home landline usually comes bundled with home broadband. SingTel offers ADSL, Starhub offers cable.

Fibre is offered by a bit more provider and the infra is managed separately by a consortium. So it depends on network policy and how much users per MB they want to load. Providers are:
SingTel
StarHub
M1
MyRepublic
ViewQuest
SuperInternet

For best in savings, get the bundled deal. But mix and match usually gives you the best choice (at a higher cost though).
Regards,
Kelvin
