Well im not a gamer & jjust want a reasonable speed (say 700-800 mbps for a 1 gbps plan) and a connection then is stable & not always disconnected. This is esp if i am going for starhub fibre tv too. Will be a disaster if the connection is sh*tty unstable with frequent disconnects cos that means intermittent internet AND tv �

Personally still undecided between singtel BB & tv and starhub BB & tv.
For your info.
Starhub Fibre and IPTV are both on separate IP.
Meaning IPTV IP is fix due to the subscriber subscribed channels.
If fibre do have issue as in connection or maintenance, it will not affect IPTV.

For Singtel i do not know.

No issue for light user.
But surely whether connection is stable or got frequent DC has nothing to do with light or heavy user rite?

Have read sbout starhub's supposedly crappy DNS server though not everyone can agree if that is the main cause of problems.

Yes, both on different ONT Ports as cannot mix or interchangeable.
Fibre on Port 1 while IPTV Port 2.

Singtel tv does have a separate bandwidth that is not usable by internet usage, hence the vlan and priority configuration..

Eric3743 has said what i want to say. Starhub is not so bad. If you heavy download then they will do internet traffic shaping.

Fingers crossed. Cos I'm on starhub cable TV for so long, I guess it only makes sense to transition to starhub fibre TV.

Usual caveat applies, fibre link down = everything down.

Quite happy with Starhub and renewed my contract with them.
I even got the new EA7500 V2 Router from them and did some tests.
Definitely an upgrade from the old DIR-868L and I have much better coverage in my new house.

Did a wired test connection and this is what I got :

Linksys ea7500 v2 is definitely an upgrade in terms of performance at router device level comparing to dlink..

Absolutely sir. Even my WiFi speeds managed to hit 502mbps down and 685mbps down. D-link best I ever got was low 400s. Same devices used to test so router is definitely a level up or more from D-link.

It depends.
if nothing is wrong, the internet is good.

if something goes wrong, oh boy.
calling the customer service number won't repair it, but to keep them in check by annoying the **** out of them till they fix it.

the new router is probably better than the previous d-link.

Am facing intermittent DHCP issues with starhub fibre since 11.45pm 18 Oct 2017.

Reboot Asus ac-87u with Merlin 380.68 twice and saw its the ISP DHCP issue from the main router admin page.

I am quite reluctant to go on fibre TV due to both parents using a hubstation each and me having to teach them to use the fibre TV box because of a changed user interface

Their internet fibre leaves alot to be desired as when it's down it takes 3 days to get the Netlink Trust staff down to troubleshoot.
