StarHub 500mbps or 1Gbps fibre?

500mbps for $29.90 and 1Gbps for $39.90, which one should I get? Is 1Gbps overkill?

Depend on the number of devices that need the connections.

And what sort of network you intend to have & use it for.

For example, say, 5 devices active in use and just internet surfing & streaming then 500mbps would be more than enough.

Another thing to consider may be the freebies given. Recently for my recontract with StarHub MaxInfinity 500Mbps plan after a few years out of contract, no free router was given. Not a problem for me though as the old D-Link DIR-865L still works fine. And the free StarHub Lite with old big cable based Hubstation is still free. That is good enough for me. Not so sure what kind of freebies I would get if I upgraded to the 1Gbps plan.

Actually it depend on your need and how many devices and whether you often download big files.
