From what I can see, he basically re-terminated the points in his rooms to RJ45 standards.
That means he will have to change the faceplate and keystone which cost about $10+ together. Thus for a given 5 HDB flat, you might need to change about 3-5 faceplate. Thus it will work out to about $60.

I also engaged a free lance guy to change all the rooms to cat6 RJ45. In addition he also helped me changed the main panel box to be a 4 port cat6 RJ45. So that whole house can be wired up to fully utilise the fibre plan. Then he recommend me add wirless Asus router in my master room. I did so and wow Speedtest.org download speed max is 60+Mbps on my single band iphone 4 and 220Mbps on my dual band labtop with ASUS RT66 dual band router. At last can fully utilise my fibre plan now.

Hi I'm switching to fibre . Can you advise how you do the conversion (of the phone ports)? Or would be good if you can refer the freelance tech guy

Hi bro, you did it yourself or engage someone to do it?
$60 to change all the points, or $60 to change for each point?
$60 change all points.

Inside this box is it a patch panel to the 3 bedrooms and the living room? So you would need to place your router near this box and connect it to the patch panel?
Yes. Some cat 6 are laid towards outside of singtel phone circuit. u need to do tracing. if not, you gotta keep crimping and test accordingly.

please share with me the contact of the company/person who did the conversion for you.

thank you.
i'm doing it myself. pretty simple. you just need a punchdown tool this one is good enough liao. cheap cheap. i got it free from my favourite shop at SLS. cost not more than $2?



den follow by, wirecutter. for newbies that don't know **** about colour coding. go google it urself. very straight forward.

Lotus sells their stuffs at a premium. If your at SLS, try the lower floors like 3/4flrs, there is a few shops that sells those as well.
