Quick analysis

For most tiers, M1 offers the best deals over a two-year period due to its more affordable monthly plans, which adds up to significant cost savings over two years. The only tier where it falls behind Singtel is the Mid-high tier where Singtel has much better pricing on the phones.

StarHub's monthly plans are as expensive as Singtel and they also have the most expensive phone pricing across the board.
