Does Gocoax online ship directly to Singapore ? How much does the shipping cost ?

Thanks
Yes .... I bought it from there and ship to Singapore.

You go check in at the Buy Now cart and key in Singapore address... it should give you the shipping cost.

Try amazon.sg which maybe cheaper in shipping fees.

Unit price wise, about the same.

I got spare pairs of DirecTV (100Mbps) and MoCa (1Gbps).

MoCA solution is more stable than DirecTV. Both are sufficient for IPTV set-top-boxes. MoCA is definitely better for inter-PC file transfer.


I had laid CAT7 cables room to room, now these coaxial networking are obsolete and no longer needed.

You need to put a note to seller to provide UK adaptors.

Itís cheaper to buy from Amazon.SG rather than Amazon.com (US) due to shipping cost and merchant bank currency conversion.

I encountered the same problem. Seems like we have to do the order twice, which kinda negates the savings from shipping through Amazon. I'll order direct from goCoax then so I can also pick up a POE filter.

You attach it to the main SCV cable to prevent your internet signal from reflecting back into the main connection to Starhub. Theoretically disconnecting the main SCV cable in the box should work but I'm getting it just in case the riser is locked (I haven't checked my new house yet) and I need to call Starhub to open up and install filter.

You should read through this thread, it's been explained many times.

I think itís to prevent your BB internet signal leak out to other houses if it is connected to the main incoming SCV cable.

Nowadays TV are not using the SCV antenna anymore, I think you do not have to use POE filter connector.

For termination of the incoming, I simply just disconnect the incoming cable to prevent BB internet signal from going out to my neighbours.

Thanks. Yes, I did read about it sometimes back. Is there any charge for Starhub to open up riser? Where does riser locate? I am staying in HDB.

How much does the filter cost? Can I get it locally ?
