Mobile Data Plan in Singapore

If you are going for a short trip in Singapore and could not leave without internet access like me, you should get the SingTel prepaid sim card! DO NOT rely on the free WIFI in hotel...its damn damn slow and sometimes you could not even connected at all! And some hotel charges you for a fees to connect per day some more and the speed is so slow! The hotel that I stayed (shall blog later which hotel is it) charges like SGD$18 to force us get a buffet breakfast for 2 person only can entitle free WIFI *sheesh*

With SingTel mobile data, you get to online anytime, anywhere from your handphone and with high speed some more lo! Can even snap the photos and direct upload it to share in social media. And if you have frens or relatives in Singapore, can use this sim card to make smses or calls to them at a very low charges too.

How much does this SingTel prepaid sim card cost? 
You can purchase either SGD$28 or SGD$50 prepaid sim card. I got the SGD$28 since my trip is 4 days only. Then you can decide which prepaid data plans below to activate:
