It’s the smallest telco in Singapore.

But for 4G connectivity and time needed for users to establish a mobile data connection, M1 trumps Singtel and Starhub – the other two bigger telcos in the market.

That’s according to the Infocomm Development Authority’s recent study.

Starhbub fared the worst on both counts.

Singtel redeemed itself with the fastest 3G data download speed.

These findings were collected from 50 million data points from October last year to March this year.

The research is part of an Infocomm Development Authority pilot project to increase information transparency to help consumers make informed choices on their mobile broadband plans.

The IDA says it will make such reports available every six months through data collected on its MyConnection SG app, which will be released later this year.

It also revealed in the report that 4G download speeds are about five times faster than 3G download speeds when it comes to surfing social networking websites, video streaming and online gaming.
