Downgrade is only when you are on contract. If you are not on contract, you can recontract any plan you want, right ? So no penalty.

Think there might be charges for changing of plan from higher to lower as well, even when contract is over. Better check first.

Change of plan from lower to higher no charge if over contract.

I've checked before. No. Of course, you should check each time you want to downgrade the speed cause their policy might change. But it's really unreasonable to charge penalty, there is no considerations to bind a person to a particular speed (since there is no benefit given to me to stay on with them).

If on contract, one must finish the contract to downgrade. But I think cannot upgrade or recontract either, other than the last few months because they worry that you might jump ship once the contract is over.

There may be latency benefits for certain sites. For example my ipv6 latency to tserv1.fra1.he.net (hurricane electric) is around 69ms while on ipv4 its 150ms

I called M1 hotline last night, with regards to my consistently low speed. I've been getting 300-400mbps on Lan for a 1 GB plan.

I got a shock of my life. It's normal to get 400 plus Mbps according to the technical department

http://www.m1.com.sg/hbbspeeds

Only GamePro will achieve 900 plus consistently

That's very bad, looks like M1 really only reserve all their bandwidth to their top plan. Very unfair to sell a 1 Gbps plan and tell you to expect a typical 400+ speed only.

They measure qos on uptime, latencies and complaints. But if we compare to Starhub for example, their stated typical speed for 1Gbps is:
891.7Mbps 1079.5Mbps [Local]
611.2Mbps 895.7Mbps [International]

So Starhub's 611Mbps is much better than M1. So I guess only our complaints will somehow matter to IMDA.

It link says: 1Gbps 460.3 940.1Mbps

I wonder what's the IMDA guideline in this. Anyone knows ?

Recently, noticed that M1 has dropped quite a number of peers. Wonder has it got anything to do with this ?
