MyRepublic fibre

I was walking around when some salesboy handled me a leaflet about this new Internet provider.
Anyone heard or already sign up with them?
Seems like 1st 6months only $9.90 per month

It is a new ISP in town, I think it is a promotion they are offering to customers as stated in their website (Usual price is S$59/gst.)

24 Months contract

Means you have to pay in total for 2 years 9.90x6+59x18=$1121.40
Therefore each month is effectively $46.725

Too bad, their promotion comes out at the wrong timing for me as I had already signed up for SingTel's Christmas promotion explore home 100 at S$69.90/gst. Due to ADSL's contract terms, I can't terminate it now as I still haven't fulfilled my 2 yrs. contract, therefore I got no choice but to sign up for Singtel unless I will have to wait until June' 12 to change ISP.

The only thing I see for it is the following...
Custom Routing to games overseas that optimizes your connection!
But there is no detailed information for that. It makes me wonder why would you not go with the existing ISPs.

i do like to see how they are able to do this, in FAQ it already show that their stand is to blame the hosting server.

I tried drilling the CSO, but they wont speak of their peering partners, and besides, their website running on Amazon EC2 and not their own network dosn't bode well for a well homework-ed potential customer

Anyway, the CSO did told me about changing routes, most probably you could just call in and they will set the routers, but how much peering partners and route out of their network is.... anyone's guess.

Cloud computing, but in this case used as 3rd party web server.
