A subscriber of four years can expect to bill Singtel about S$216.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have all their lives been easily squeezed out of their money, are taking matters into their own hands.

This after Singtel has offered subscribers a new package to double their data cap from 2GB to 4GB by paying S$5.90 more a month.

One Singaporean, Soh Du Lan, said this is, therefore, the right time as long-time subscribers to bill Singtel back: “Singtel previously reduced 12GB data plan to 2GB and now they want to bill us S$5.90 a month just to double it to 4GB?”

“I have written an invoice and sent to Singtel demanding they pay me back S$5.90 for every month I was a subscriber with them since they lowered the data cap but did not offer to double my data plan.”

“This works out to about S$216 from Singtel for the last four years. If they apologise, I would waive off S$5.90 and just collect S$210.”

“With no GST some more.”

Other Singaporeans said they applaud all three telcos in Singapore for acting like they are competitors when they are in cahoots to match one another’s prices.

Majulah Singtel.

Singtel postpaid subscribers from all walks of life, who have been exploited by rent-seeking telcos all their lives, have vowed to download the contents of the entire Internet.

This after all Singtel postpaid customers get to enjoy two full days of free unlimited mobile data this Chinese New Year from midnight on Sunday, Feb. 7 till 11.59pm on Monday, Feb. 8.

One Singtel subscriber, Yong Poh Siu, said he will not hold back when using his 4G mobile data: “I plan to play all the videos on YouTube night and day, tether all my laptops and tablet devices using my mobile data and download everything I can find on the Internet.”

“I don’t even care what I download. I just want to download.”

“This is to get back at Singtel for their rent-seeking mentality all throughout these several years.”

Other Singaporeans, however, said downloading everything on the Internet is not the solution.

Another local, Hor Yee See, said: “I will download everything I don’t need and then delete them.”

“And then download again.”

“I don’t care. I just don’t.”

At press time, Singtel postpaid subscribers have turned on their personal hotspots on their devices and left it on without being password-protected so that anyone can access it and proceed to download the Internet.

Singaporeans from all walks of life have nodded their heads collectively and quietly reaffirmed one another’s belief and inherent knowledge that actually all three telcos in Singapore — Singtel, M1 and StarHub — equally suck.

This after it was reported that broadband provider MyRepublic has raised S$23 million to gear up for its bid for Singapore’s fourth mobile phone licence.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who have had it up to here with data caps and exorbitant costs of owning a smartphone with an accompanying two-year subscription plan, said they know deep down inside Singtel, M1 and StarHub are all one and the same.

One Singaporean, Tua Pao Xian, said: “Let’s go back to October 2013 when a fire at the Singtel facility in Bukit Panjang caused outages and disruptions to phone, cable television and Internet services offered by StarHub and M1 as well.”

“It is clear from this instance that all three telcos rely on the same infrastructure. The only thing that is different about them is how their logos have different colours and shapes.”

“If one of their services suck, it is most certainly the case that the other two suck as well because they are using the same fibre cables and facilities.”

See Baey Man, another local who is disgruntled with all three telcos but whose hands are tied, said: “And when other countries, such as South Korea, are already talking about 5G, we are still here debating about 4G and upgrading infrastructure.”

“All three telcos embody the worst of the rentier economy: The customer is treated like a paying serf to be milked.”

“Everything is chargeable and comes with a price.”

“Customers are not idiots. We know. We accept the circumstances because there is no other way around it.”

All telcos are one and the same except for their branding.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who have lived with 3G and 4G dead zones while continuing to pay monthly mobile phone subscription on time as if all services are okay, said they cannot wait for the fourth telco to start operations in Singapore.

This after Singtel suffered outages of its mobile data services island-wide on April 22, 2015, resulting in a lot of complaints online.

M1 and StarHub subscribers said they feel lucky this time that only Singtel subscribers are affected as they are well aware that all three existing telcos are one and the same and share the same infrastructure.

Previously, a Singtel fire at their facility in October 2013 left M1 and StarHub services crippled as well:

One Singaporean, Didi Pai, said a fourth telco in Singapore would help level the playing field: “Once there is a fourth telco, it will be really even as they will provide service standards that are equally bad.”

“This will ensure no one is a market leader and take away everyone else’s business.”

 

All are evenly matched:

Speculative invoicing made them feel violated and harassed.

dallas-buyers-club-spore

Hundreds of Singaporeans from all walks of life, who received unsolicited lawyer’s letters demanding they make a written offer of damages and costs for alleged illegal downloading, are applying for the recently instituted Protection from Harassment Act against Dallas Buyers Club LLC and the law firms they hired to send out letters of demand.

This after United States company Dallas Buyers Club LLC, which owns the film’s rights, had identified more than 500 Singapore Internet Protocol (IP) addresses from subscribers of Singtel, Starhub and M1 where the movie was downloaded illegally.

They subsequently compelled the three major telcos in Singapore to turn over the names, IC numbers and addresses of subscribers linked to the IP addresses identified.

However, there might be a roadblock ahead.

One of the telco subscribers, who declined to be named, said he is applying for the Protection from Harassment Act against Dallas Buyers Club LLC and the law firms they hired in Singapore: “I feel very harassed, molested and violated by this unsolicited letters of demand. This is speculative invoicing. Plain and simple. It does not constitute proof of any misdeed.”

“And with the Protection from Harassment Act in place in Singapore, we now have the law on our side to protect ourselves as citizens from unwanted advances of law firms and big motion picture companies.”

Previously, the Ministry of Defence had applied for the Protection from Harassment Act against a citizen, which led to citizens applying for it against the Singapore Armed Forces and MINDEF, as a counter-harassment measure.

Singaporeans from all walks of life have nodded their heads collectively and quietly reaffirmed one another’s belief and inherent knowledge that actually all three telcos in Singapore — Singtel, M1 and StarHub — equally suck.

This was after the recent brouhaha where the Singtel CEO had to publicly apologise to both M1 and StarHub for appointing Gushcloud, a so-called influencer company, to write poor reviews to smear the rival telcos.

Singaporeans from all walks of life, who are immune to advertising nonsense and put off by inane influencers who in reality are not influential, said they know deep down inside Singtel, M1 and StarHub are all one and the same.

This is the standard practice in Singapore if you commit lapses.

gushcloud-fail

Singaporeans from all walks of life who would take their own lives for causing any error, have requested the management of Singtel and Gushcloud to commit hara-kiri.

This after the Singtel CEO apologised to both M1 and StarHub for smearing them by appointing Gushcloud, a company that supposedly has influence, to pay its influencers to complain publicly about Singtel’s rivals.

One Singaporean, Qu Zi Sha, said: “Everybody makes mistakes but since you have sworn on your family to take responsibility, you have no choice but to commit hara-kiri.”

“It is only through committing suicide that we can put this sad episode to rest. This is the PAP way of doing things and Minister Khaw Boon Wan highly recommends it.”

However, before Singtel and Gushcloud commit hara-kiri together, they can be glad they have been effective in what they do by achieving the objectives of their marketing plans, which is to get noticed by the public-at-large through their actions and misdeeds.

One Singaporean, Zhen Tian Zhen, who likes to look on the bright side of life, said: “Wow, this Gushcloud must be really influencer. They managed to get so many social media mentions for Singtel with their smear campaign. No wonder Singtel hired them in the first place.”

Singaporeans from all walks of life are thanking SingTel profusely.

This after SingTel announced that the World Cup 2014 package will cost $112.

See Baey Kwee, a local, said: “Thank you SingTel for making it $112. Now that almost no one can afford it, it is very exclusive. To be able to watch World Cup 2014 is a privilege.”

Other Singaporeans said the Media Development Authority is also to be thanked for their role.

Zho Seng Li, a Singaporean, said: “If not for the MDA making cross-carriage rules possible, SingTel and StarHub won’t be bidding so much to get exclusive rights.”

“Actually, the State has a stake in both corporations.”

“Wink.”

Superstition is what drives our economy anyways, they say.

blessed-singapore-cropped

Singaporeans from all walks of life and religions (including Jedis) are requesting SingTel, POSB and DBS to allow religious leaders into their lives.

This after SingTel, POSB and DBS suffered embarrassing outages over the past week from unknown causes.

But which are most likely the work of the Devil.

This caused Singaporeans to request the same religious leaders who blessed the F1 night race track last month, to bless the affected facilities of the various companies.

Qu Bai Bai, a local, said Singapore’s prosperity has always been based on superstitions more than rationality, so there’s no harm getting divine help: “Increase population, economic growth will go up.”

“Hold F1, will invite foreign investments.”

“Build casino, will have trickle-down effect.”

“All these are all superstitions one. You think got causality one meh? Just let the religious leaders bless your facilities, will work also.”

If SingTel and StarHub can sort out their infrastructure leasing terms behind closed doors, why not EPL broadcasting rights?

English Premier League fans in Singapore are increasingly annoyed with SingTel and StarHub.

They are wondering if the two telcos are really involved in any kind of real competition — especially for the controversial EPL broadcasting rights that has resulted in a fierce bidding war and escalating prices.

This after the recent fire at the SingTel facility in Bukit Panjang last Wednesday revealed the close relationship between the various telcos in Singapore.

As the fire caused outages to all the other telcos, it turns out that they all leasing infrastructure owned by SingTel — making competitors dependent on one another.

One EPL fan, Tak Kew, explained his doubts: “It’s not that difficult to imagine the bidding war for EPL broadcasting rights between SingTel and StarHub as a big hoo ha just for the public to see.”

“If SingTel and StarHub can perform backroom deals to lease infrastructure, then why can’t the rights to EPL be sorted out in the same clean fashion and at a lowered cost to all?”

“Is the playing out of the bidding war just a show to the public? Why can’t they settle the deal in a way that is beneficial to consumers?”

Singapore government’s “light touch approach” to end, censoring top 1,000 instead of 100 porn sites.

lovelace

Singaporeans’ habit of downloading and streaming Internet porn might have gone overboard, after a fire broke out at the SingTel facility at Bukit Panjang yesterday afternoon due to a possible overload of online smut.

Servers that became overloaded with porn at the facility caused a possible overheating that made the place burst into flames.

The fire subsequently caused outages island-wide.

Lai Zhuo Ai, an engineer said: “As StarHub and M1 all lease SingTel’s facilities and ride on their capability, we can safely say all telcos’ subscribers have their own share of perverts who are hardcore porn downloaders.”

However, this porn overload might cause public policy to shift.

The Singapore government might put to an end it’s alleged “light touch approach”, where only 100 porn sites have been censored for symbolic purposes.

The top 1,000 sites might now be censored instead.

Kee Sio Kang, a scholar of Internet porn, said: “A lot of people will go to Hong Lim Park to protest this one.”

This article is actually to encourage you to go catch Lovelace. Oh yeah.

Singaporeans from all walks of life who have signed up for different subscription plans under various telcos were shocked yesterday.

This after they learned that a fire at a SingTel facility in Bukit Panjang caused outages and disruptions to phone, cable television and Internet services offered by StarHub and M1 as well.

Pian Ren De, a local, said: “My whole life is a lie. I thought they were all separate entities. But they all lease resources from SingTel.”

This caused Singaporeans to characterise the relationship of corporate entities as “incest”.

Another Singaporean, Lai Sio Kang, said: “This means they are all in cahoots. Even though they got different names, they all share SingTel’s capabilities.”

“This is incest.”

Sycophancy” removed as diplomacy tool after Singtel loses bid for telecom license

cottage cheese

cottage cheese.

A new strain of yeast that causes vaginal infections will be named after Myanmar president Thein Sein. The decision was made by Singapore’s foreign affairs ministry following singtel’s failed bid to build a telecommunications network in the previously reclusive country.

“Not only will be name Thein Sein after an organism that causes smelly vaginas, we will also remove our policy of syncophancy as a diplomacy tool towards Myanmar,” the ministry said in a statement issued late Friday.

Sources within the ministry say that the move was ordered by K Shanmugam, who coined the name Theinsein Chowchibus (singular) himself.

The move to name plantlife after Thein Sein is not a new one- in 2009 Singapore named an orchid after the Myanmar president and in 2012 did the same with his wife.

However this has proven ineffective after Myanmar granted Norway’s Telenor and Qatar’s Ooredoo Telecom permission to make loads of money help the kleptocracy third world country develop its infrastructure, instead of longtime buddy Singtel.

“These people should be grateful for the warmth and love we showered upon them when everyone else condemned them for their human rights violations,” said Singtel spokesperson Wang Enfu Yi.

 

Broadband users cry foul, claim they ‘feel cheated’

Broadband users cry foul, claim they ‘feel cheated’

Broadband speeds were intentionally slowed, with speed restriction lifted by SingTel and StarHub only in September.

Wah! Porno now can load so fast ah!

If you are a SingTel or StarHub broadband user and you have been experiencing faster connection to overseas websites such as Facebook and Tudou only lately, and you don’t know why, well, here’s why: That’s because your broadband speeds have been intentionally restricted all along.

Since September, SingTel and StarHub has officially lifted caps on broadband speeds in response to renewed severe competition in the broadband sector.

Since the late 2010 introduction of nationwide fibre optic network, there has been new broadband players in the market, such as ViewQwest and MyRepublic, with no speed caps.

With the current speed limit off, SingTel is giving its 100 Mbps fibre broadband users an overseas connection speed that averages 34.9 Mbps while StarHub is offering 32.1 Mbps. And they imagine they are giving you the gift of the century.

But it’s no such thing because broadband speeds are still quite pitiful, to be honest. Like watching a dog with three legs limp across the road. As it is chased by a tom cat kind of pitiful.

This was revealed after the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) commissioned tests.

Broadband users that New Nation spoke to are without a shadow of a doubt unhappy.

“So do we get a partial refund? I feel cheated.” one unamused broadband user, Xian Ji Puar said.

“First, The Straits Times screws us over with a $7,000-a-month cab driver news and now this? What next? Tony Tan is actually a woman?”, another unamused user, Chit Mai Phi-Ling, said.

Editor’s note: Before the speed caps were lifted, broadband users were experiencing speeds of between 15Mbps and 21 Mbps, about half of what it is now.

This is a 60-second reduction of the original article. With additional reporting from New Nation.
