For those on MyRepublic fibre, is your speed test results (speedtest.net) close to or match your subscribed speed?

No but the chokepoint for me is the wifi router speed. I've not done a cabled test yet. I'll let you know. (ON WIFI I can get 20MBPS on a speed test and download torrents at around 1MBPS - which is 10 times fast than my old previous cable router).

In Singapore, yes. Outside, of course not. But from my research, every single current fiber ISP does the same mis-advertising on speeds. ViewQuest and MyRepublic had the best overall ratings from their subscribers. ViewQuest the best if you want a massive package (ha ha ha) for a few hundred per month.

I get about 1800kbps (1.7MBPS) through the NNTP protocol with Starhub 100MB cable. Still waiting on fibre.

I quite fancy the ViewQwest, I like the idea of the Viewqwest TV thing, anyone have experience?

I tested and getting 150Mmbps in speedtest.net while on Wifi, I am sure it will be better if I have a Gigabit lan port on my laptop. I using a ASUS router, super fast Wifi.

Any one using MyRepublic? I am now using ViewQwest, comparing speed.

Which server did you use with speedtest.net? I can run a comparison. I'm on MyRepublic's 100/50 plan.

MyRepublic's version of it works great. Everything on my AppleTV just works seamlessly.

Get the ASUS AC router. Wireless connection speed to the router will be 300Mbps and the bottleneck will be your ISP.

This is from a MacMini that I remote desktop into. It is connected via Gigabit directly to my RT-66U. I'm on MyRepublic's 'Pure' no-contract 100/50 plan:

I just let SpeedTest pick the closest server it wanted. If you want to pick a few specific arbitrary servers, let me know and I can run tests against those.

Singtel or ViewQwest server both get 150Mbps over Wifi connection. I am trial on ViewQwest 300Mbps, thinking of downgrading to 150Mbps package cause technically not possible to get that speed over Wifi.

The installer did get 270Mbps speedtest in my premises when using gigabit LAN connection.

What is your speedtest results?

I wonder will I get close to the above if I downgrade to their 150/75.

Posted above. My plan is well-within the limits of 802.11n wifi, so I can't check that for a bottle-neck. I can't get a faster plan as this is the only one offered contract free from MyRepublic. It also isn't a big deal to me. I was mostly interested in the faster upstream, and 50mb is enough for everything I do. I can't saturate my link with Dropbox set to unlimited upstream and multiple torrents running, so I'm good. :)

Using 300Mbps over Wifi via ASUS RT-AC66U can only get 150/150Mbps. Which means any speed beyond the Wifi limit is going into the drain for me.

So the Apple TV doesn't need any amendments to get hulu/netflix/bbc working?
