What do you say to surfing YouTube or watching Maria Ozawa on the go? Or, maybe, just tethering your laptop while “studying” at Starbucks.
Believe it or not, that’s what Singapore’s fourth telco, TPG Telecom, said they’ll do.
TPG Telecom Made A Reappearance
If you’ve forgotten about TPG Telecom, I don’t blame you.
After all, after their successful bid to become the fourth telco of Singapore, they seemed to have vanished into thin air.
Even the bidder who failed to become the fourth telco made more noise than them.
But say what you will about this ghosting telco, when they made a reappearance, they really know how to make an entrance.
One Year Service Trial For S’poreans
TPG Telecom announced their exciting plans for Singaporeans on 21 Dec.
For the first 20,000 Singapore residents who register their interest with TPG Telecom, they’ll be given one-year mobile service with the telco.
- Unlimited data
- Unlimited mobile to mobile calls
- 20 local SMSes to local fixed line
- 20 minutes outgoing calls to local fixed line
But that’s not the kicker.

It’s totally free.
There is no lock-in period for the contract, though, so you can cancel the number after the one-year trial.
People who managed to register their interest and join the service trial will be given a new number.
And they’ll be notified two months before TPG starts charging for the mobile plan.
There are a few catches though
The data bundle is more than capable of achieving 4G data speeds.
Daily data bundle will be capped at 2GB per day. So if you exceed 2GB, you’re probably going to watch Johnny Sins go at it in slow-mo at 1mbps.
The mobile calls also require voice over LTE (VoLTE) compatible handsets to work with its mobile network.
So if you’re holding phones like the Samsung Galaxy S9 and S9+, Huawei’s Nova 3i, P20 and Mate 20, you’re safe.
If you’re not, well, you’re stuck with a 20-minute outgoing call plan.
So will people go for it? Probably, yeah.
I mean, unlimited data for free are pretty powerful words to use in Singapore.
Plus, most phones in Singapore can hold two SIM cards at a time now.
Most Singaporeans would just go for it and use it as a data card (2GB per day is really enough).
Although that kind of defeat the purpose for the telco, who’s rolling out this awesome freebie to do some market research in Singapore.
They’ll gather feedback from Singaporeans through their “unique community forum” and tailor their services in preparation for their full commercial offerings in Singapore.

The Coca-Cola Plus Coffee has arrived in Singapore, and let’s just say that the taste is very subjective: one of us thinks it’s like coffee candy, one of us thinks it’s like carbonated dark chocolate milk and one of us think it’s like Vanilla Coke. However, none of us thinks that it’s worth a second try, simply because we’ll all rather have Coke and coffee separately.
