Here’s the tariff comparison (data in bold I have as part of my allowance with Circles.Life):
|Starhub (4G 4)||Circles.Life||Comments|
|Base Data||4 GB||4 GB|
|Porting Bonus Data||None||1 GB|
|Loyalty Data||None||500 MB||Added every 6 months|
|Referral Data||None||200 MB||Per referral|
|Circles.Life App||None||1 GB|
|Talk Time||350 min||100 min|
As you can see, the Circles.Life tariff is data oriented with significant ongoing bonuses, doesn’t contain an SMS allowance (since iMessage, WhatsApp, et al. came onto the scene, who needs a large SMS allowance on a smartphone tariff?), and, importantly, is over 50% cheaper than StarHub.
In terms of network performance, I’ve had downstream speeds ranging from 44Mbps to 69Mbps, and upstream speeds ranging from 23Mbps to 42Mbps. StarHub performance in the same areas of the city ranged from 32Mbps to 35Mbps downstream, and 12Mbps to 20Mbps upstream.
If you are a data heavy customer, I’d recommend Circles.Life. If you want a $20 discount at checkout you can use my referral code
