Users looking for the best SIM only plan with huge data bundle will be spoilt for choice. The telco war is escalating with Singtel’s MVNO – Zero1 adding 2 new plans – Jumbo Sim only plan. Currently, this plan seems to be for porting in only.

For $12/mth, you will get 60 GB of data,, 500 local mins, 50 SMS, free incoming, free caller ID.

For $20/mth plan, you will get a 100 GB, 500 IDD mins to selected countries, 800 local minutes, 100 SMS, Free incoming calls and free caller ID.

The plans seems to be targeting TPG mobile which offers for $10/mth, 50 GB of local data (100 GB for APRIL to JULY 2021), 300 local minutes and 30 SMS, free incoming and free caller ID and 1 GB free data roam in selected countries.

The $18/mth gives you 80 GB of local data (130 GB from APRIL to JULY 2021), 500 local minutes and 500 SMS. Free 300 IDD minutes to 21 countries, free 2 GB data roam.

Although looks like a prepaid plan as we see a Cash Top Up in the banner. It is actually a post paid plan. Currently, there is nothing mentioned about debit/credit card payment. If that is the case, you would probably have to pay cash at it’s partner outlets. At the moment, there is no SIM registration fee and it is only for walk in customers. This offer isn’t available online (yet).

Zero1, running on Singtel network should have a better coverage e.g. in the MRT where TPG is still trying to provide 4G coverage on NSWEL, DTL, CIRCLE lines by Q2, 2021 (supposedly by end of June). As for data roaming, unless you are willing to go through the hassle of qurantine in another country, I doubt not many will be travelling overseas for the next couple of months.
