LOCAL TELCO M1 LIKELY TO BE SOLD TO FOREIGN INVESTORS?

Seems like based on news reports, local telco M1 is planning to sell their company, and so far, the bidders have all come in the shape of foreign investments. The telco is Singapore's third largest carrier, and is currently owned by Axiata Group, Keppel Telecommunications & Transportation, and Singapore Press Holdings.

The proposed sale comes in the wake of a fourth mobile operator joining the market in Singapore. So what does this mean for M1? If the sale comes to fruition, will there still be an M1, or will it change into some other forms? And what about the users of M1, some of whom are M1 customers since day 1.

M1 TELCO TRIED TO OVERCHARGE MY MONTHLY BILL WITH LAME ADMIN EXCUSE

My brother had a contract with M1 for his mobile phone service from Jul 2013 to Jul 2015. The Plan costs $94 per month. He decided to re-contract with M1 in May 2015 for a cheaper plan for two years to 2017 at $61 per month. M1 subscribers beware! M1 requires you to inform them when your old contract expires before they are willing to bill you the new lower rate. Is this how it should be? Or should M1 rethink this?

SG telcos find new ways to fleece customers

Recently, we read about how Starhub and Singtel used dubious methods to overcharge customers. Just now, I realised M1 is up to sneaky ways to con us of our money too. My latest M1 bill had 7-8$ of something called voicemail access. When I called them, M1 told me that this was the duration for which people left voice mails for me. I was shocked as I was never told I would be charged for the time people left voicemails for me. If anything, we were told that under our plan, there is free voicemail.
