Broadband Plans

At every IT fair, the three telcos in Singapore, namely SingTel, StarHub and M1 come up with all forms of special bundles, all in the hopes of enticing you to sign up for a two-year mobile or broadband plan. There's a wide variety of discounted plans and freebies to choose from, so here are some of the deals that you might not want to miss out at IT Show 2012.

M1 (Level 2, Ballroom 2 & Foyer)


M1 100Mbps Fibre Broadband Offer

When it comes to the most affordable fibre broadband plans, M1 has taken the lead over the last few IT fairs. This year, they've tossed in their 100Mbps fibre broadband plan along with a mobile broadband mData value plan that gives you download speeds of 7.2Mbps and 5GB data limit.

Priced at $45 per month, you are looking at a costing savings of nearly $26 per month from the usual price of both plans combined.

  • IT Show Price: $45 / month
  • Usual Price: $59 / month for 100Mbps fibre broadband and $12 per month for 7.2Mbps mobile broadband.


Free Toshiba Satellite U840 or Apple MacBook Pro with Fibre Broadband and Mobile Sign-up

As usual, M1 is bundling free notebooks with a fibre broadband and mobile plan sign-up. Now if you're eyeing that Apple MacBook Pro, here's the mathematics. With the fibre broadband 200Mbps plan at $99 and the mobile broadband mData Max at $40, you're looking at a monthly subscription of $139.

Now that's $4 off the usual price, and for that you're getting a MacBook Pro with a Core i5 2.4GHz processor, 4GB RAM and a 500GB HDD.

  • IT Show Price: $135 / month
  • Usual Price: $99 / month for 200Mbps fibre broadband and $40 per month for 7.2Mbps mobile broadband.
  • Promotion: Free Apple MacBook Pro worth $1,648
