Best telco plan: M1 to offer a new no-contract 30GB SIM-only data plan for just $25/month, and it comes with 1000 mins, 1000 SMS and free caller ID

As a part of its strategic transformation, M1 today announced a move to refine its mobile offering on the basis of changing customer needs and expectations.

As a first step towards this, M1 has simplified its mobile offering, with one base plan each for SIM-only and handset bundles, replacing its existing 19 plans starting today. The simplification offers customers greater flexibility and personalisation through a mobile plan that can be made- to-measure.

The SIM-only contract-free base plan starts from S$25, and the handset base plan starts from a S$30 contract, both enjoying unlimited weekend data. Both plans offer the best data value bundle in the market today, starting with 30GB and 12GB respectively at the base plan. Customers can then build and personalise their own plans over the base plan by adding on more data, voice minutes, SMS, roaming pack and other value-added services depending on their expected usage and need.

With the new plans, customers can enjoy larger data bundles as compared to the older plans being replaced. Existing customers who are currently in contract with M1 can download the My M1 app or call the customer service hotline on 1627 to check if they are eligible to change to the new plan.

‘We believe that our customers deserve true value and to pay only for what they need. These easy-to-understand and easy-to-build plans allow our customers to make their own decisions and build it just the way they want,’ said Mr Manjot Singh Mann, CEO of M1.

For better customer experience, M1 has introduced a brand new website that incorporates a streamlined interface that is more intuitive for customers to decide on their plans and build it on- the-go. After signing up for the new mobile plans online, customers can also choose to have their SIM card and handset delivered to their doorstep at no additional cost.

‘Since the recent acquisition of M1 by Keppel Corporation and SPH, the M1 team and shareholders have been working hard to crystallise our transformation strategy across all areas of our business, with the primary aim to deliver the best possible customer experience and simplification of the customer journey. Today’s launch marks the start of the transformation and will pave the way for many more exciting offers in the months ahead,’ added Mann.

Take Advantage Of Big Data Plans

With the advent of social media, people are increasingly sharing their personal lives on Facebook and Instagram. Listening to their favourite podcasts or streaming videos to watch on the go have also become common entertainment outlets. As a result, they find themselves consuming more and more mobile data.

In response, telecommunication service providers have developed big data plans that are more suited for the consumption patterns of today. For instance, M1 was the first to re-introduce unlimited data mobile plans 5 years after they were phased out! By jumping onto the bandwagon, savvy mobile users can reap plenty of benefits with big data mobile plans.

No More Fretting Over Additional Data Charges

Do you recall the hassle of having to look for free Wi-Fi hotspots or switching off your mobile data completely when you realise that you are about to exceed your monthly data bundle? With big data mobile plans, you need not monitor your data usage excessively and worry about incurring excess data charges. You simply choose a mobile plan that best suits your data needs. Taking M1 Big Data Plans as an example, if you use data mainly for social media browsing, you can get a 5GB SIM-only plan at just S$20/mth. If that is still not enough for you, good news – there is also an option of Unlimited Data plan at S$98/mth.

It might also be better to pay a slightly higher monthly subscription to enjoy better value in data, as compared to paying excess data charges. For instance, M1 offers 15GB data at S$40/mth. With just an additional S$10/mth, you can enjoy 30GB for S$50/mth. That’s twice the amount of data! This is clearly better value than paying S$10.70/GB for excess charges.

Essentially, heavy mobile data users get more value for their money by utilising big data mobile plans as compared to paying excess data charges!

More Freedom To Do What You Love

Not only do mobile users get more data for their buck, they also no longer have to worry about incurring any excess charges with M1’s all-unlimited mobile plan. At only S$98 per month, subscribers get to enjoy unlimited data, talktime and SMS/MMS. This not only provides certainty with regards to their mobile bills, it also gives them plenty of freedom in fulfilling their mobile entertainment needs; they are free to surf popular social networking sites or stream their favourite music while on the move.

Sharing Of Big Data Plan

It gets even better as a family unit can tap and consume data from a single big data plan. For instance, M1 offers sharing of main plan bundle with up to 2 supplementary plans at just $12 per month each. This means that up to a total of 3 lines can tap from a single mobile plan; leading to great savings across the household. For example, a family of 3 can share a 30GB SIM-only plan at a total subscription of S$74/mth, which works out to 10GB for each to use at just S$24.67/mth. This offers greater value for money as compared to all of them having to subscribe to an individual 5GB plan at S$20/mth each.

For those who have multiple devices, simply subscribe to M1’s Multi-SIM service at only S$10.70 per month (per additional SIM card) to share data from the same mobile plan. This also brings convenience and seamless connectivity without having to switch SIM card, as you tap on 1 mobile plan across a maximum of 3 devices.

Bring Your Big Data Plan Overseas

With the increased availability and affordability of travel options, going overseas is becoming extremely common. Ever wondered how convenient it would be if you could use your local data when you travel? With M1’s offering of its Data Passport services, this is now possible in 62 destinations across Asia, Europe and United States from only S$10 per month! Simply activate Data Passport on M1 Big Data Plans whereby data roaming usage on the preferred overseas network can be deducted from your monthly local data bundle. Most importantly, subscribing to M1 Data Passport means that your existing local mobile data will not go to waste and you can continue to roam like you are home. Besides cost savings, Data Passport also offers the convenience of instant data connection upon touchdown. This beats the hassle of finding and purchasing prepaid SIM cards overseas or searching for Wi-Fi in public areas.

Hurry and switch to M1 Big Data plans to reap the myriad of benefits today!
