I just had a look at the Singtel AC1900 router page:

http://info.singtel.com/personal/sup...guide-features


Wireless Connection Mode

*Dependent on broadband subscription

B Mode Up to 11mbps
G Mode Up to 20mbps
N (2.4GHz) Mode 40-70mbps
N (5GHz) Mode 70-120mbps
AC Mode 70-230mbps

I am surprised, this means on N(2.4Ghz) no matter what I do, I will get max only 70mbps. Also this router is given for Singtel 1Gbps subscribers, then how come AC Mode says 230mbps max. I am totally lost.
well you have to understand the all ISP (worldwide) only advertise the speed that is delivered to your doorstep. That means, if you connect a LAN cable to your router direct, you will get 1GBps (or whatever you signed up for).

However, should you start to broadcast ur internet in ur house through Wifi, Homeplug etc, then obviously your speed will be subjected to these restrictions and you wont get the 1Gbps anymore. So if you use wifi AC, then you can only theoretically ever get 230mbps (based on what that info says)

1623 say it is only available at the roadshow for new sign up or recont. Only one location so quite troublesome.

The router. Usual plan is ASUS RT-AC1200G+, but this promo upgrades the router to ASUS RT-AC68U. ($120 upgrade over the AC1200G+ RRP.)

got 300mbps, 1,2,5,10gbps also.

500mbps no have. perhaps you can consider 1gbps. difference between 300mbps and 1gbps is only 10 dollars

Technically $5/mth difference when you factor in the router add-on for 300Mbps, which is free on 1Gbps.

Go and see the past IT Shows and you'll see the 500Mbps @ $29/mth. How does that prove that I'm M1 employee? Plus, I did recommend the LocalSaver $18 top up denomination on one of the threads, on SingTel Mobile Prepaid.
