FAQ
1) I want to do number port from Starhub/SingTel, can I do so?
Ans: Yes, free number porting from Starhub/SingTel

2) I am not the Starhub/SingTel homeline subscriber, can I port the number over to M1 Fibre broadband that is sign under my name?
Ans: The Starhub/SingTel subscriber is advisable to come down with you for the sign up. He/She needs to sign an authorization letter for the service to be port over to you & under M1 Fibre.

3) I want to use my own router but also need Fixed Voice Service.

Ans: These are the different kind of Setups you can try:

a) TP-Fibre Optic Cable-> ONT -Ethernet Cable-> RG -> PC/Laptop

b) TP-Fibre Optic Cable-> ONT -Ethernet Cable-> RG -> Router -> PC/Laptop

c) TP-Fibre Optic Cable-> ONT -Ethernet Cable-> Router

d) TP-Fibre Optic Cable-> ONT -Ethernet Cable-> PC/Laptop

RG > Residential Gateway (Huawei HG256-Optional at $2/mth rental)
TP > OpenNet Terminal Point
ONT > Optical Network Terminal (Fibre modem)
*Stated in orange is the type of cable use. For Ethernet cable, can use Cat6 or Cat5.

4) Any recommendation for Wireless router?
Ans: I have no recommendation but I came across this thread who is sharing the performance of this router EnGenius 9850. Seems a pretty good review and more importantly, its a rather high-end router (with 4 x Gigabit LAN ports) at a price range of $79-$89. Usually such specs will easily fetch a price range of $150.

Best thing about this review. It was test with M1 Fibre Broadband 50Mbps. Click Here
*Please do not quote me that I ask you to get this router. It just a sharing on what I seen.

5) When is my home going to be fibre ready?
Ans: Refer to http://rollout.opennet.com.sg/

6) How do I change my Residential Gateway settings?
Ans: Refer to QuickGuide http://m1.com.sg/fibre/setup.pdf

Cheers,
Alvin

Unfortunally, M1 is still not changing to new router/gateway yet. The performance of current HG256 is really bad.

Wonder what will be coming up next for SiteX 2011. Lets camp!
Better ask M1 to change their RG to D-Link just like starhub.
Hope to see $29 for 100Mbps.
