Speedtest results in that mode gives only 30/30 Mbps max. Seems to do more harm than good from my testing.

I'm kinda curious. Does it feel a huge difference in terms of surfing speed and video streaming?

You will notice that there is no lag in playing youtube videos. You can select a list of songs in youtube to play while surfing the internet. I can tell you NO MORE LAG. Gaming also smooth. Ping to USA drop from 235 to 178.

I torrented 5 songs/movies (i saw one going at 2.1mbps), loaded 6 huskystarcraft 1080p videos (all can stream and watch at the same time cause it's so fast), and played mw2 or sc2 + while my parents were watching HD movies through miotv and my brother was playing sc2(probably torrenting and streaming ****) on another comp.

Yeah all that **** at the same time. Current setup for computer usage is ont -> 2wire -> netgear router.

I used to be a 10mbps mio plan subscriber and the old white 2wire piece of crap sucked so bad. However the new black 2wire is awesome. handles so many connections/things going on at the same time.

I'm super particular when it comes to internet experience, which includes bandwidth(for streaming and torrenting) and ping(for gaming and it's excellent im the lowest in the bc2 servers). and that going fibre is the best thing ever. the feeling is like switching from 56k to broadband.

I hope this can clarify some doubts for people who are sitting on the fence about switching to fibre.

My experience so far is so so (Explore Home), but definitely faster than old 10Mbps Singnet.

Torrent wise, maybe a slight improvement (of the few torrents I tested, one hit 1.35MBps peak hours). Youtube I'd only say it depends on the Youtube servers. I have encountered quite a few rebuffering problems with some videos yet very fast streaming on others, and I doubt that the problem has to do with singnet.

Best experience so far is with the windows updates. The previous patch tuesday is a breeze despite being a record holder in terms of the no of patches. The fiber skimmed over 80+MB of updates like it was a few megs at most.

Direct download experience varies, but best so far was 1m 6s for an anime episode that is 209MB. Beats torrents anyday lol

I don't have unrealistic expectations of the fiber speeds when I signed up, but so far no unhappiness with the service due to disruptions etc. My speedtests are below average (technician got 170/90, 120/80 is average for me) but I guess I wont feel the speed difference anyway. Mio TV with 15 free movies a month is an afterthought when signing up, but nice to have nonetheless.
