The hunt for the 3G/4G dead zones in Singapore begins

We’ll then collate them so you’ll have a point of reference the next time you head out and about
The hunt for the 3G/4G dead zones in Singapore

Singapore might be a little dot on a map but that doesn’t mean our purported islandwide mobile coverage is the most spectacular.

Believe it or not, there are plenty of dead 3G/4G zones in our little red dot. We know this issue gets on your nerves just as much as it does ours, and that’s the sole reason why we’re sharing with you where they are

Why? Because we’re sure you’d like to know beforehand where you can expect a call to drop off or at which points your intense Instagram scrolling gets disrupted instead of thinking your smartphones or tablets have suddenly screwed up on you.

But figuring that out all by ourselves will be a huge feat. Not to mention the hours it’ll take us to travel around Singapore on different modes of transport to mark out on our maps the points where our data trails off.

What we’re trying to say is that we can’t do this alone – we need your help. Since you already might have information for us and know for sure of points that result in data blackouts, we may as well feed off your leads.

Here’s one to start you off – if you live up north you’ll probably know this. There’s a point between Yio Chu Kang and Khatib MRT station that the dropout happens (somewhere along Lentor). We’ve tried it when taking the train, the bus, or a taxi and we get the same result every single time along that stretch.   

So if you know of any other 3G/4G dead zones, don't forget to fill in the form above, drop us a message in the comment box below or post on our Facebook page. We’ll be sure to add the info and compile them for M1, Singtel and StarHub to get their act together.
