Singtel is still our readers’ favorite telco this year, garnering half of all the votes. Its overall position is still strong despite the presence of new digital telco player, Circles. Life, which entered the market in mid 2016. We can’t say the same for StarHub, it seems to have lost footing since the previous year.
Singtel’s best moves last year include the new DataX3 mobile data add-on, the expansion of its ReadyRoam service to 26 countries, and collaboration with M1 and StarHub on a universal mobile-based authentication platform. Singtel also launched Cast, an OTT video portal app. And Singtel Music, its music streaming service now plays nice with Spotify, KKBOX, AMPed, MeRadio, and Tidal. Recently, Singtel has even upgraded its 4G network to support 450Mbps.
