Free 2GB of Mobile Data Per Day

TPG Mobile is offering a free 12 months trial on their mobile service right now. I bet no Telcos in Singapore can offer you free 2GB of mobile data per day except TPG mobile. My current mobile plan offers only 3GB of data per month!

For those who are interested to sign up for the free trial, you can do so at their website. But please do take note that the registration is closed once they have enough registrations for the day. Even though their website has mentioned that they will open registration daily at 9am, the registration remained closed for a couple of days. I have to keep monitoring the registration page and I was lucky to register for the free trial when they opened last week.

Collection of the SIM card was easy at Shaw Center. You only have to flash the barcode in the email that TPG emailed you immediately after the registration and do bring along your NRIC for identification.

With such fantastic deal like above, it is no wonder TPG mobile can be a threat to Singtel, Starhub and M1.

TPG Telecom is Singapore Fourth Telco

TPG Telecom, an Australian-based internet service provider has won the bid to become Singapore’s 4th Telco. The winning bid is S$105 million.

It is quite contradicting. SingTel venturing into Australian market and here in Singapore, we have TPG Telecom venturing into Singapore market. It may take a few years for TPG Telecom to gain market share in Singapore.

Currently, StarHub makes up 3% of my stock portfolio. It has been providing good dividend and growth over the years. Based on 1 month stock chart, the price of StarHub has plunged 10.57%. Read More
