You seem to teeter on the line of being helpful and advertising your business. You cross that line, you're gonna get it. That said, I'm gonna let the regulars have fun with you.

To respond to your post, it's like choosing between a giant douche and a turd sandwich.

The consensus among the regulars here is to get neither and just subscribe to a fiber connection ISP.

Hi Garry, sure, I have a question: Cisco DPC3925 used by starhab has a fixed range of IP addresses that can be allocated to its internal dhcp server, to one single network within C class. Could you please tell me what is the rationale behind spoiling this otherwise rather good piece of equipment with such idiotic limitation?

Anyone who is interested in quality Internet should subscribe to MyRepublic or ViewQuest, this has been discussed many times over. Singtel and Starhub are for those who can't be bothered about the quality of their Internet service or have very minimal needs.

I won't even bother to elaborate, there are dozens of posts about this already.

i have just moved to Singapore & will shortly be signing up for my house lease. As such need to set up everything new - internet, Cable TV & phone. Seek some advice as below:

1. I am looking at a Myrepublic plan for the internet. Just wanted to check: does the 1Gbps plan really translate in to real world usage at those speeds since most routers (i have a Netgear DGND 3700 currently) dont deliver more than half of that via wifi

2. Can i take MyRepublic for internet + phone & Singtel/Starhub for cable? Asking since i read on the singtel site that delivery of cable service needs either a phone line or internet

3. Last: is the MyRepublic + Singtel/Starhub plan as above work out to be far more expensive than just going for all 3 with either Singtel/Starhub alone? Up to 10%-20% difference is completely ok for the excellent internet service of course.

Many thanx.
