Analysis

Overall, M1 offers the cheapest monthly subscription prices, while StarHub offers the cheapest handset prices.

In the value plan category, while M1 has the cheapest overall price, we would actually recommend StarHub for its 1GB data bundle. 

In the mid and mid-high tiers, StarHub is offering excellent value with its new data friendly plans, which provide unlimited weekend data, and a very affordable handset price, making it by far the best choice here.

At the high tier, Singtel has the overall lowest price, but once again, you should consider StarHub if you're a heavy data user thanks to its 8GB data bundle and unlimited weekend data.

Lastly in the premium plan tier, it's the same story again as M1 appears cheapest from a total outlay perspective, but StarHub's generous 15GB data bundle and unlimited weekend data make it a better choice for heavy data users.
