Prepaid plans and its users used to be the step children, but now no more.
In recent years, Singtel – the biggest telecommunication operator here in Singapore – has been upping the game by giving more and more perks to its prepaid users.
Back then around 2010 and before, as prepaid user, there was even no way to upgrade from 2G SIM Card to 3G SIM Card. You need to terminate your existing number and buy a new 3G SIM Card with new number.
Fast forward to present time, while perks given to Postpaid users are still better (in terms of perks, not how much you pay for it), but Prepaid users are in much better position now – we are no longer a step children – even I can say with Singtel latest move and promotion in Prepaid plans, those Postpaid subscribers may want to think to shift and make the jump to be Prepaid subscribers.
What’s the advantages of being Prepaid users compared to Postpaid Subscriber
The most important here is, as Prepaid users, you pay as you use. Unlike Postpaid subscribers, they pay some amount – if they use more, they need to pay more, but if they use less – they still need to pay the agreed amount.
Apart from that, here are the other advantages being a Prepaid users as compared to Postpaid users.
- Pay as you use.
- No contract.
- There is no urgency to upgrade your phone – some postpaid plans make you to upgrade your phone every year or 2 years.
- Able to switch to other provider easily.
- No funny charges such as Caller ID – prepaid users get it for free while postpaid subscribers need to pay to get Caller ID.
Here’s the Singtel Prepaid Plan with Generous FREE Data
There are plenty of Prepaid plans available at Singtel, however there is this one Prepaid plan which looks a lot similar to Postpaid plan (because it’s monthly base and recurring until you stop it) and giving out generous free data.
It’s called YAY! Monthly Plan. Price is $19.90/month (GST inclusive) and here’s what you get with that dollar amount.
- 200 mins call
- 200 SMS
- 5GB from 8am – 12am
- 5GB from 12am – 8am
- 1st month: 0GB
- 2nd month: 1GB all day
- 3rd month: 2GB all day
- 4th month: 3GB all day
- 5th month: 4GB all day
- 6th month onward: 5GB all day
If you are keep using the Prepaid numbers for at minimum 6 months, at the end of 6th month, you’ll get in total 15GB data (5GB all day, 5GB from 8am-12am, 5GB from 12am-8am).
How’s that? Not bad and looks a lot like a Postpaid plan, right? But it’s available for Prepaid users! Depends on you, but for me personally, 15GB is more than enough to use within a month.
