Mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) MyRepublic has ramped up the data allowance for customers of its current mobile plans and unveiled two new SIM-only plans.

Customers on existing plans will be able to enjoy 7GB or 30GB of data at 4G speeds (up from 1GB and 20GB respectively). Following these caps, they will have access to unlimited data at fair-usage throttled speeds until their next billing cycle. For users on the Unlimited plan, this data cap kicks in at 4GB a day (up from 3GB). 

In addition, two new SIM-only plans are available for sign-up until 14 April. They come with no contractunlimited talk time and SMSes, and free services such as caller ID, SIM card activation, and delivery. They also target different ends on the market with a data light plan at S$10 for 6GB and a heavy-user plan with 40GB costing S$29.

The changes to existing plans include:

We first announced the Value plan yesterday with the heavy usage Power plan having been launched in November 2019.

Lawrence Chan, Managing Director of MyRepublic Singapore said that they have noticed a huge jump in the number of people using cloud-based tools for work and learning, tapping on e-commerce sites to do their shopping, and consuming more entertainment on streaming video and online gaming platforms. Most likely due to social distancing and stay/work from home orders due to the Covid-19 virus, Chan said that the plan upgrades are designed to provide customers with a worry-free experience in view of their changing needs.

Existing MyRepublic mobile customers can upgrade their plans via their app to enjoy the data upsize for free from 31 March 2020, while interested customers can sign up for any of the plans online.
