Choosing the best unlimited data plan in Singapore
Compared to a decade ago when the internet was mainly used for business purposes, cheaper data plans have greatly increased the number of internet users worldwide. A large number of users in Singapore are young people, teenagers and people in their twenties who spend many hours online daily.
These users are consuming a large amount of data daily, so they wish to get the best deal possible. There are a large number of internet service providers (ISPs) in Singapore offering unlimited data plans so some of the factors which should be considered while choosing the best unlimited data plan in Singapore
One of the main factors which should be considered while selecting the internet connection is the actual speed of the internet connection. Many ISPs are offering unlimited data at a low rate, yet their actual internet connection speed is very slow. In some cases, the speed will be very low at 10 kbps so though the user can transfer a large amount of data, it will take a very long time.
If the data transfer rate, especially during the day is very less, it will also be very difficult to open certain pages, or the pages will time out. So if the data transfer rate for the unlimited data plan is less, the productivity of the user would greatly reduce. Hence it is advisable to check the reviews of the different unlimited plans for the guaranteed data transfer speed
Most ISPs are calling their data plans unlimited only as a marketing gimmick to attract more customers. The ISPs have collected data of the usage of all the internet users and are aware that most internet users will never use more than 50 GB data monthly. The more honest ISPs will specify the exact data limit for the unlimited plan , usually it is 100 GB per month. In other cases, the limit will be specified in the fine print.
In case the ISP is not specifying the data transfer limit monthly, it is advisable to get a clarification, especially if the user is planning to use the connection for business or commercial purposes, and requires a quality internet connection. Users will often not spend the entire data transfer allocated to them in a month, so it is better to choose a plan which allows roll over of the data to the next month.
Though most people will not realize it, users who require an internet connection for commercial, business or educational purposes, should check the customer support which is offered. It is sometimes difficult to get customer support on the phone, the user has to visit the office or store of the telco/ISP.
Often the SIM for the connection is getting damaged, or has to be replaced so the user has to visit the store repeatedly. Hence it is better to purchase a SIM from a service provider who has a large network of stores, so that the internet user does not have to spend more time traveling to the store for SIM replacement or other assistance. So if all factors are the same, it is better to purchase a SIM/data plan from a store in the area
