Singtel subscribers vow to download entire Internet with free unlimited mobile data this CNY

Posted on 08 February 2016

They would play YouTube videos non-stop for 48 hours.


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.
