hi,
I am on the 500M plan.
With my existing AC devices, my maximum wifi DL/UL is up to 250/270 Mbps.
Obviously, this is with direct line of sight (within 1 feet) of the asusrouter.

NEWS FLASH.

For Singtel Residential Users who are subscribing to internet service above 500M, please DO NOT use this router if you home ONT is ZTE.

Singtel engineers have identified compatibility issues between their ZTE infrastructure and the RT-AC3200 router, causing internet speed to peak at only 3-400M upload and download. Another router affected is the Netgear Nighthawk X6. Engineers are testing out these 2 routers with their Alcatel ONTs to confirm compatibility.

We should have more updates by end of today.

Hmm I'm unsure about the credibility of your post. I personally used act 200 with ZTE ont and was on Unlimited fibre, didn't encounter any incompatibility issue, let alone the low maximum speed you claim leh..

Got any evidence?

Troubleshooting for a friend living in Opposition GRC. Singtel 1G subscriber black ZTE ONT. Speed test never exceed 500M at home. Bring to Starhub and M1 1G subscribers home and test can hit at least 800M. Got Singtel involved and they discovered some compatibility issues with the 2 routers I mentioned with ZTE. Something to do with the chipset the routers used. Waiting for updates later this evening.

ONT not faulty. Singtel technician brought along their Aztech router to try. Can hit up to 900+M consistently. We plug in a notebook directly into the ONT also can hit 900+M consistently in Speedtest. Only thing we have not tried is connect to a Singtel Alcatel ONT ourselves. We do not know anyone who subscribes to 1G Singtel line and have Alcatel ONT installed at home.

Yup, unlimited. Any other Singtel Unlimited Plan users having the same issue with this router or the Netgear Nighthawk? My friend requested Singtel to swap out his ZTE ONT for the more recent Alcatel but was turned down by Singtel. The reason being the region where he stays is served by ZTE-based infrastructure and Alcatel ONTs are not fully compatible with the network infrastructure there.

Just bought a 20 bucks cooler master laptop cooler to be placed below this router. Anyone else having this configuration too? The router does get pretty hot.
