MyRepublic now has an eSIM that lets you activate your mobile service in less than 5 minutes

It looks like we’re not getting a shortage of telco deals in Singapore now with mobile service providers offering more and more affordable mobile plans recently.

First, we had TPG Mobile extending its $5 for 20GB Seniors Plan. Then, we recently got wind of a new kid on the block, Gorilla Mobile, which lets you fully “switch back” unused mobile data to offset your bill.

Now, MyRepublic is reclaiming the spotlight with the launch of its eSIM service that gets you connected to your mobile service almost instantly – and it can all be done online.

For the uninitiated, an eSIM has the circuitry of a SIM card but it is embedded into your device’s motherboard. This means that any information stored is remotely reprogrammable and can be added or rewritten when needed.

With this new eSIM service, you’ll no longer require a physical SIM card if you have an eSIM compatible device. The sign-up process is also completely digital so you can do it all from the comfort of your home.

Plus, those who own more than two mobile service subscriptions get to enjoy the convenience of digitally combining all their lines on one device without having to fiddle with multiple SIM cards.

“In a digital-first world, customers place a greater emphasis on reliability, quality, and convenience,” said Lawrence Chan, Managing Director of MyRepublic Singapore. “As a brand for the people, we want to focus on the things that matter to our customers. The launch of our eSIM service during this time is a mark of our commitment to provide them with a seamless, fuss-free digital experience.”

As part of its promise to be a customer-first brand, MyRepublic’s eSIM offers exceptional convenience and speed as it enables you to activate its mobile service in five minutes or less.

To sign up, you simply have to follow three steps:

  1. Select the eSIM option when signing up for a MyRepublic mobile data plan

  2. Once the order is confirmed, a unique activation code will be sent via email

  3. Scan the unique activation code to activate the eSIM

This all-new eSIM service is available for all new signups on MyRepublic’s no-contract plans.
