I am considering to upgrade my Linksys EA6300 router to Linksys EA7500.

Which Linksys EA7500 version is better.. Linksys EA7500v1 or Linksys EA7500v2?

Linksys EA7500v1 - AC1900 MU-MIMO Dual-band Gigabit, 600 + 1300 Mbps with Qualcom Atheros 1.4 GHz (dual core) chipsets and 3 external antenna.

Linksys EA7500v2 - AC1900+ MU-MIMO Dual-band Gigabit, 800 + 1733 Mbps with MediaTek 880 MHz (dual core) chipsets and 3 external antenna plus 1 internal antenna.

Different in chipset brand, cpc speed, and number of antennas.

Any opinions on which version is the better choice?
Thank you.

Of course Linksys EA7500v2 is better with latest firmware update.

Thank you for your opinion on the Linksys EA7500v2.

Initially, I was not sure whether the Linksys EA7500v1 that comes with the Qualcomm 1.4 GHz was a better chipset, with the higher CPU is better off.

I am a long term SH Fibre Internet user and my contract has ended. I am contemplating to switch to ST for their internet and mobile services.

I have had no major issue or even minor issue with SH internet since I took up the 1Gbps plan and the speed has been very consistent through the time I am on it. Even while playing games like CSGO, my ping has been consistent at 5ms and no disconnection issue at all.

My friend who was on ST 1Gbps (just renewed), keep having connection issue and will always DC from his game. Speed is unreliable too.

Now the thing is, if I were to stay with SH, what bundle should I go for or I should go Ala Carte on all services to enjoy monthly discount from Hub Club benefits.

Anyone can advise?

As long as you have 3 main services, namely, Broadband, TV & Mobile, you are Hub Club member with benefits.
That's whether ala carte or HomeHub plan.
Discounts n some benefits are the same.
HomeHub additional benefits are free home line and maxmobile 1GB mobile data only.

Am a SH 1Gbps fibre user, recently upgraded firmware for the D-LINK868 router and found my download speed dropped to 300+ Mbps. Upload speed is around 600+ Mbps.

Note I did a factory reset after the firmware upgrade and reset the DNS to google DNS (8.8.8.8 & 8.8.4.4) Connection speed used to be around 900+ Mbps for both.

My PC is directly connected to the router via CAT 6 cable.

Any where else I should look at before calling SH Service Centre? Note I am a layman in terms of these IT matters. Thanks in advance.

Firmware version 1.09SHC.
Do factory reset and do not change the DNS & other settings, except SSID & Password, if nec.
Speedtest on Starhub server.

Speed varies from time to time.
Meaning peak hours would be slow.
Measurement based on various timing.
Official they stated 60% is minimum.
Sometime it depend on browser, computer spec n usage, etc.
For 1Gbps means this is shared within your premise.
More users online expect slight differences among users.

Mine normal is 500mbps down to 600+mbps up on Chrome.
But 600+mbps down to 900+mbps up on IE.
It is fine to me as i am not heavy user.

As mentioned by brother eric, most value plan would be HomeHub if you going to re-contract with Starhub. There is now the 6 month free HomeHub 1000 plan which means on the first 6 months, you are only paying for your mobile contracts.
