Actually most of the time the deals are same same. They usually repeat their promotion. It also depends on his need like fibre Tv or Starhub Tv Go etc.

Hi all gurus:

My 15mb singtel ADSL expires in early april.

Starhub offers a cable broadband 200mbps $22.90

Starhub HOmehub has fibre broadband 0.5G onwards.

Can someone explains the difference? Is it always must have fibre? I have family of 4 who use phone and laptop.

And 300mbps fibre for family of 4 for phone and laptop and smart TV. is already good enough if not playing game professionally, is that correct?

thank u all for your advice

Fiber is fast speed but setup can be quite dread for some people other than is only the backend connection. Like cable using coaxial point and fiber required fiber terminal point.

As for usage it varies to each household. Like for yours even a cable should more than enough. But if you want fiber can consider M1 port from ADSL to fiber scheme. Where they help u offset certain things for u enjoy fiber.(but ain't sure if the promo still ongoing or not )

Watching man utd game live on web with my adsl 3mbs plan, in used since 2000's, $22.90/mth... half time 0-0... lol... do i nid fibre? wifi?

i guess it's more for singtel to raise average revenue per user in forcing adsl to migrate...

likely to get singtel fibre 300mbs at 29.90, hopefully got better rate at IT show, with waiver of analogue home line quarterly fee of $30...

Fibre usually comes for free digital line. U can request to keep it as analogue but phone call charges apply
