now the worst things is i'm still using a p965 socket775 q6600 computer. can support 1gbps speed meh??

anyway if you have not done any selection on the fiberbb speed u wish to uptake, just go for the cheapest tier. that way u won't be concerned for the max 1gbps speed u are getting

since anything below 1gbps u also won't need to pay for another pc right?

Is M1 fibre better than SingTel? Or they are relatively the same?

I am using singtel and my ah Ma is using m1. If you use both for Low media consumption, then wouldn’t matter much. Internet speed only matters if you are using it intensively during peak hours and is obsessed in speed numbers..

Should be able to support the speed. 1Gbps is nothing new.

This depend on your location.
Fastest within a week.
Standard is 2 weeks.
Need to check with ISP.

ISP will liaise with NetLink Trust (NLT).
There will be 2 appt.
First by NLT and once finished ISP will need to be in your premise to install & setup /activate ONT for Fibre broadband.
As for NLT may no need to be in your premise.

Hi all, would appreciate if anyone can help clarify the following:

Currently using StarHub fibre via Nucleus Connect ONT and dlink router provided by them for internet, and Singtel ADSL only for SingtelTV. Will I be able to use SingtelTV through my existing router or direct through my existing ONT?

Also, is it possible for me to setup myself if required, or is there a lot of config to be done or additional activation of tp?

Thanks
