Upload 500+ also wrong already, could be speedtest server playing with him.
A lot of factors we do not know. Wifi environment, devices, position, etc. etc. so any number, fast or slow, is possible. I simply read he called 1688 to solve slow DL vs UL. He did not state about complaining or to resolve the UL speed. Therefore I am also guessing here he is using wifi for the UL.

He signed up 1 Mbps plan, and I think he knows the expected speed if via LAN and also the speed penalty via wifi. From what I read, he does not sound like a noob.

Aztech 1900? Or 7009? Or 7003?
This router is a bit slower than 7009, a bit better than 7003.

1 mbps?
I think you meant 1gbps, but since he stated wifi. So we just take it as wireless. Which impossible to get even 500mbps.

not push blame la, I think most of the time really is user problem or the layout of the house.

nowadays BTO flat layout cmi, damn bad for wifi connectivity.

as for user problem, usually is hardware cannot support that speed. or some setting that limit the download speed.

the user also based his judgement on wifi speeds which are subjected to interferences from the environment.
My "push blame" is not based on wifi stuff haha. Its based on my multiple experiences talking with singtel staff over the years. Although they like to push blame in the beginning, once they realised their mistakes they are quick to apologise and solve the problem for you...

Collected mine today. I re-contract to the 1 Gbps home bundle, gave up Singtel TV. My new plan only start Monday, wonder whether can start using this new router with my existing FEB 200 or must wait for Monday.

Actually what's the diff between the 1 Gbps home bundle vs the 1 Gbps Unlimited. I opted for the 1 Gbps home bundle because I get to retain my Singnet email while I lose it if I go unlimited. Also after 2 months free promo, the monthly $ diff is home cost $5 more monthly (total $120 over 24 months) but get this router free. And don't worry about taichi between RSP and router distro and be in the middle of problem delay long long.

you can hook up the ac1900 already despite the 1gbps not yet activated. but do note that your speed will not change much arh since your plan has not been activated.

do remember to do a power cycle for ont and router on the day of activation..

oh btw unlimited fibre allows users to change to any 3rd party router and has no vlan feature. meaning, unlimited fibre is not as "well managed" as the home fibre plans where at the backend, they will analyse the internet traffic and allocate the resources equally among all subscribers at that particular time. something like traffic shaping.

but for unlimited fibre, the control isnt that great. so in the end the speed fluctuation will be slightly larger than home fibre plans..

mine quite bad.... direct connect to the router and did a speedtest.singnet.com.sg website app, download 400+Mbps, upload 900+Mbps.

Calling Singtel now... they trying to be funny hur. Before i recontract, i am given free upgrade to 1Gbps (using the 7003) and can get download 700+Mbps, upload 800+Mbp.

Now have to get the tech guy to come down and see liao.

I was at ComCentre on Monday to return Singtel TV STB ,etc and re-contract away out of Fibre Ent Bundle. My preference was Fibre 500 Home Bundle but was told it does not come with Arcadyan AC1900 router but instead Aztech router. Only 1 Gbps ($10 more) and above get Arcadyan AC1900.

I hope I am not screwed. Any one with new 500 Home bundle get the Arcadyan AC1900?
