Singtel announced the launch of its “Roam Like Home” DataRoam Saver Australia (Monthly) 1 GB plan. The plan is offered at a promotional price of $10 for the first 1 GB of bundled data, with subsequent usage being charged at $0.10 per MB.
Customers are assured of the best value for their money under either plan, with a low starting price of $10, as well as the most competitive incremental charges should they exceed their 1 GB data allowance. The new plan offers extensive and reliable network coverage in Australia through its wholly owned subsidiary, Optus. Singtel customers roaming on Optus’ network will be connected to its 4G Plus mobile network and enjoy faster uploads and downloads for a better data experience while on the go.
“Australia is a popular travel destination among Singaporeans and with our new plan, Singtel customers will be served by a high quality network and enjoy seamless connectivity. They will not have to rely on WiFi hotspots or go through the hassle of registering for a local SIM to be connected again,” said Mr Johan Buse, Singtel’s VP for Consumer Marketing.
“DataRoam Saver Australia (Monthly) 1 GB allows customers to indulge in activities such as sharing vacation photos on social media, mapping travel directions and video chatting with friends and family back home. Business travellers can also stay in touch with the office and clients while on the move.”
In addition to its affordable rates, DataRoam Saver Australia (Monthly) 1 GB plan also features Network Lock (protects DataRoam Saver plan subscribers from unintended pay-per-use data charges on non-preferred networks) and data roaming usage alerts – complementary services that give customers useful information about their data usage, and prevent data roaming bill shock.
Customers can subscribe to Singtel’s “Roam Like Home” DataRoam Saver Australia (Monthly) 1 GB and DataRoam Saver Malaysia (Monthly) 1 GB plans via the My Singtel App or by dialling *100# while in Australia or Malaysia.

The new roaming plans looks good, at least light data users wouldn’t have to keep switching sim cards and accidentally losing their local sim.
Aside from Australia and Malaysia, maybe it would be good if they would do similar ones for Thailand. That would save frequent travelers lots of time and no sim card switching.
As good as it is, I’m on another telco, can’t make use of this service… plus my usage averages 3 – 5GB, locally and during travels 😀
