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:

Deep down inside, S’poreans know M1, StarHub & Singtel all equally suck

This is the real OMGtel logo

This is the real OMGtel logo

Consistel subsidiary, OMGTel, has recently rolled out a logo pushing the frontiers of technology and graphic design.

Comprising of the letters “O”, “M” and “G” in multicoloured Impact font, placed in front of a gradient-filled rhombus, this lively logo has taken the Internet by storm.

“Ask Jeeves informed me that this style of graphic design is the latest ‘hip’ and ‘fly’ thing,” said designer Lao Gu Dong.

“Its multiple gradients really push the frontiers of graphic technology. To tell you the truth, my computer almost overheated when I had to switch from Microsoft Word to Microsoft Paint,” he said.

When questioned about his font choice, Lao said: “I was taken aback when I was entrusted with the responsibility of designing the logo for what might be Singapore’s fourth telco. I scrolled through the list of Word 98 fonts to find one with an impact. You can imagine my surprise when I found one which was literally called Impact.”

OMGTel spokesperson, Jin Oh Biang, said: “I’m glad that Lao came through at this critical moment. It must have been incredibly difficult to visualise such a futuristic and stylish logo. The various colours of the gradients represent our commitment to landlines, pagers, as well as that new technology, cellular phones.”

“The logo has definitely furthered our brand recognition and popularity locally. After the launch, one of the most common reactions to our logo has simply been ‘OMG’.”

 

OMG indeed:
