We have been using SingTel’s 4G network for awhile now and the experience is truly enjoyable! Make no mistakes about it; though we know that many people may be skeptical about SingTel’s 4G network, our experience with it has proven that SingTel’s 4G network is undeniably the best in Singapore.
4G mobile network is essentially known as fourth generation mobile network and it is technically termed as Long Term Evolution [LTE]. With 4G network, the speeds at which data is being transferred are typically faster than using 3G network.
In case you’re wondering, SingTel’s 4G network expansion does not affect the quality of SingTel’s 3G network services in any way because both SingTel’s 3G and 4G services operate on separate networks. As a matter of fact, with more mobile users adopting 4G services, the quality of 3G services are expected to improve over time.
Just to let you know, we were issued with a review kit that consisted of a Huawei E392 USB Dongle and a SIM Card that hooks up to SingTel’s 4G network. Though the Huawei E392 USB Dongle wasn’t as compact as we hope for it to be, it was nevertheless still portable to carry around.

Over the last 1 month, we were using SingTel’s 4G Network for all of our blogging needs and that includes uploading of photos, downloading of documents, surfing the Internet for information and streaming Youtube videos. Since we’re always out and about, we have tried using SingTel’s 4G Network at various locations and we must say, the speed is amazingly fast!
This is the sort of speed that we usually get when using SingTel’s 4G Network.
However, in case you’re wondering, we don’t achieve such fantastic results when we’re underground in the MRT Tunnels and at times, we might even get a 3G network instead of a 4G network. Even then, we still get a typical download speed range of 1.7 Mbps to 4.8 Mbps.
The speed range may vary between users and it is subjected to the device used, hardware and software limitation, 4G network coverage/traffic, distance between user and base station, nature of built-up area, source of website and other external factors.
Do you know?
SingTel is deploying cutting edge Multiple Input Multiple Output [MIMO] technology for 4G subscribers to enjoy download speeds of up to 150Mbps! That is double the 75Mbps speeds of conventional 4G networks and it has already been deployed in shopping malls like Serangoon Nex and Tampines Mall.
