M1 to recontract.

Do I have to return old Asus router to get a new one? Or keep old one and get the new router as well?

Thanks. 😀

during early days of their new contract sign up, I rmb they say need to keep the box of the HG256 ONT etc. Based on users here I guess there is no such need anymore

Router is yours to keep. If your renewal includes a router, you get another one

Thanks bro.

Managed to drop by late yesterday to M1 shop, the staff said have to return old router if I want to avail the new router on renewal. So, can only exchange or not claim new router.

Also re-confirmed now with M1 customer service now, cannot keep the old router if availing the new router. New router given will be ASUS RT-AC2600.

Am thinking is it worth all the hassle to disconnect old router, bring to M1 shop for exchange, and configure new router? Will there be noticeable performance difference with the new router?

Or just recontract and not bother with the router upgrade?

Thanks all.

I’m currently on M1 1 GBPS, having two Asus AC1200G+ routers in a 4 room BTO.

Using two wired connections and the rest Wifi.

Noticed WIFI speeds are not consistent in certain parts of the house. Should I consider google mesh?

hi, considering to sign up m1 500mbps, appreciate some feedback from users
- does it come with mobile sim & router?
- youtube \ hd streaming is lag free? (assuming only 1~2 user)

thanks
