Hi

Does anyone know what 3G frequencies the mobile networks use in Singapore. 

Cheers
Andy

Cool - all my devices will work. :-)
Do you know if all networks on 2100MHz? Thinking of buying a pre-pay SIM rather than paying vodafone roaming rates.

You can easily buy a Singtel, M1 or Starhub sim card at any 7/11 store. Just remember to bring your passport. The prepay deals on the three carriers are much of the sameness, and all good value. Enjoy the cheap rates!

The cheap rates were what attracted me!  The data in particular is incredibly cheap. Mobile data in amounts we in NZ can only dream of, at prices as low as we pay for fixed line, and all on pre-pay. Smile

Singapore is only about 27kms long and 18kms wide....and generally flat. Unless you're on one of the several small nearby islands that are part of their territory, it would be ridiculously easy to provide cell cover for the whole city-state.

I live in Singapore; I'd recommend picking up StarHub if you're going prepaid.  While all 3 operators have nationwide 3G networks:
- M1 has the worst coverage of them all
- SingTel's 3G network is incredibly overloaded, due in part to their attractively priced data bundles and being the initial iPhone network.  Their network often dumps me back to 2G, or loses 3G for hours on end.
- StarHub has very good coverage footprint and has been pretty reliable.

Also note that there is fairly ubiquitous free WiFi in the country, sponsored by the government.  It requires a registration but once you have that, it's 512K or 1M WiFi in most malls, public attraction areas, etc.  It's fairly handy.  Google "Wireless@SG".

The flipside to this is that the country is extremely population dense, thus requires a lot of serving cells due to the high number of subscribers per cell.
