While I was waiting for the train at Raffles Place MRT, I was surfing on Facebook via the iPhone.

When the train arrived, I was still glued to Facebook on the iPhone. As I boarded the train and it moved into the tunnels, I entered a comment to a friend’s status update.

Then it hit me. I am in the tunnel heading north and that would easily meant I was entering the 3G deadzone. But wait, I managed to enter a comment.

Checked the status bar and Starhub 3G was at full bar.

Singapore telcos were given a deadline " to provision 3G internet speeds on SMRT's existing underground network by end July 2011”.

Starhub has not officially announced it but it seems that the telco is on track to meet the deadline.
