for a 300mbps plan u will need a router that offers high processing power. high end asus and tplink routers have processors that are rated at more than 800mhz which will deliver high throughput. As for the C7, i have been using for 2 weeks, only one hiccup. so far still going strong. if u have the cash and want the reliability go for the asus ac66u or the upcoming ac68u

I purchased a pair of C7s after the release of the latest firmware update. Been using it for a few days running 24x7, very stable (& it doesnt heat up like some other routers). IMO, its a decent 802.11ac router at an affordable price. Almost a no brainer considering its performance and price.

Most Singaporeans subcribe to money logic instead of actual benchmarks and testing.
That is why they are the easiest to carrot.

if u look at the prices online in USD c7 are of comparable price to asus ac66 and other brands. however in sg tp link is cheaper by a margin of almost half. so for the price/performance ratio id say get a c7, unless ur willing to import a router
