Talking Best service provider for Fibre Broadband plan?

Looking to leave Starhub and move on to another service provider for internet. Any recommendations? Just regular household usage and 1Gbps is decent enough.

So those switching are more concerned on costs than performance? Might be about right as performance wise is about the same now for fibre unlike cable internet last time.

I will be moving too...

Signed 1gb but hardly see above 800 mbps.

Call them, they sent their staff to come and check a few times, fail to find the root cause and there after radio silence me even I fired a few emails to them.

There is no best fibre broadband plan.
All has its pros and cons.

I’m currently using M1 and I find it decent. The downside is no TV service, hence I’m jumping to StarHub after my 2 years with M1 is up.

Need to port my line over too.

SG$19.90/month for Starhub fibre broadband 1Gbps

The reason I got this price instead of SG$39.90/month is that I was asked by Starhub to switch from cable broadband to fibre broadband. In return, they offered me this price.

They called me multiple times to switch too, but didn't get the $19.90. Only at $29.90.

Been with them for many years and I guess they don't really treasure their old timer customer.

Btw may I know what is the amount you paying for your cable before the switch?

You must be pissed because we pay 60ish/mth for our cable tv ONLY.

Last year they offered us 2 yr free 1gb fibre internet just to switch to fibre.

now we only pay 40+ for cable tv with free internet...

I just signed up for WC and will be installed in a couple of weeks, $32 using existing router.

They use a StarHub backbone anyway, right?

SH needed me to switch TV to fibre so I decided to cut everything, install just a 1GB line and use an Android TV box, see how I get on. Sign up to Netflix after 1-month free, if any good.
