Dare I say it? This is one of the reasons why moderators are used to try to keep some sort of order on the threads.......
I have to agree that the search function turns up tons of trash in the wrong threads due to people penchant to wander off topic. When we, as moderators try to clamp down we become the "forum Nazi's". Seems like we are damned if we do and damned if we don't!
And yes, as I said in my first post, I usually have a go at scrolling through the search function. When that doesn't works then I go to the bottom of the page and just start going back through the pages looking at the subject headers and then browsing. Sorry if I came across a little strong, it wasn't meant to be, but more times than not, people find it easier to ask a question rather that try to look it up.
But yes, there is only one cable provider so they have you by the short & curlies. For internet you can also get cable as well as ADSL from Pacific Internet but I believe they just lease the lines from Starhub as well.
Aside from Cable, all the ISP's here off similar packages as do the Telco's mobile packages. With only 4 mil people the market is too small to try to undercut each other so they do the cabel methods, everybody gouges the customer equally. Guess you already saw that by the ADSL prices.
Yup! Welcome to Singapore!
