I also just managed to recontract 1Gbps at $34.90 with a pair of Askey WiFi Mesh. Whew...I thought I might have missed the 28 Nov deadline, but the signup page still works.

Can I check is there any difference between the Wi-Fi 5 and Wi-Fi 6 broadband plan? Is it just that the router they gave is different generation of Wi-Fi.

So if I were to get $34.90 one I can buy a Wi-Fi 6 router and it would still work?

Wifi 5 and 6 no link to the plan that you’re subscribing, all is 1gbps, the router hardware you’re using control whether is wifi 5 or 6. Yes just get a wifi 6 router, can work already. There is no such thing as wifi 5 and 6 broadband plan. If the person tell you that, just ask him fk off.

Okay I just signed up with Singtel on the 1Gbps Fiber Plan, and the installation was done yesterday.
Everything fine so far. Bundled with a rubbish Askey WiFi Mesh, a rubbish IPTV Set top box (not even 4K, anyway for free), ONR is Nokia.

Self set-up with 2.5Gbps GPON stick (replace the Nokia G-240-G ONR as no one wants TR-069) and speed test no issue.
The result suggests that Singtel 1Gbps plan comes with bandwidth redundancy at about 1100Mbps (Download)/1010Mbps (Upload).

The following speed test result are taken from PC (2.5Gbps port), first one directly DHCP from NLT to PC, second one from a router with SFP+ port, and 2.5Gbps LAN to PC.

The reasonable hypothesis is that 1+1Gbps plan will hit >2200Mbps (Download) and >2020Mbps (Upload) with WAN aggregation.

The reasonable hypothesis is that 2Gbps plan will hit >2100Mbps (Download) and >2010Mbps (Upload).

Router a MikroTik? RB5009?

It is awesome that you can use 2.5Gbps GPON stick to replace the Singtel Nokia G-240-G ONR.

Did you test with Singtel TV ON? I tend to think Singtel reserves about 100Mbps for that. So probably 1100Mbps for Internet and 100Mbps for Singtel TV. Turning on Singtel TV does not affect SpeedTest based on my previous testing.

Not MikroTik. Just normal WiFi6 Router from TP-Link (China version), but not recommending to anyone unless they know what they want.

Never test that, I throw away the TV box right when I see it is only HD.
Anyhow it won't affect your internet speed as it is tagged with different VLAN for multiplexing.

Maybe I will try to pull those IPTV m3u8 multicast addresses from Singtel so it can be streamed in any IPTV software in the future, when I am too bored with other entertainments.

Haha, you can not throw the Singtel TV box away as it belongs to Singtel (just the rent is free for the HD box). Better keep it because you need to return the box once contract expires.

As for IPTV m3u8 thingy, I do not think it will work as the contents are probanly encrypted.

Check this video. You need to choose SingTel as your ISP Profile.

I had just re-contract Fibre n TV via their WA chat and choose the cheaper one. Going to get myself a new router to replace my RT-AC68U.
Here's the list of recontract offer:
* 24 mths 1GBPS FHB with Askey Mesh @ $39.90 mthly - $15 bill rebate for 24 mths (UP @ $54.90/mth)
* 24 mths 1GBPS Enhance (WiFi 6) @ $42.90 mthly - $10 bill rebate for 24 mths (UP @ $52.90/mth)

Here's the offer for TV service since you're currently on Action variety Plus
* 12 mths Contract - 50% Discount for 12 mths for Starter of Trio Pack

That is the normal offer -- I think it is okay if you have no issues with Singtel.

If you have your own good Wifi 6 router, you can choose the other offer with Askey Mesh.

* 24 mths 1GBPS FHB with Askey Mesh @ $39.90 mthly - $15 bill rebate for 24 mths (UP @ $54.90/mth)
* 24 mths 1GBPS Enhance (WiFi 6) @ $42.90 mthly - $10 bill rebate for 24 mths (UP @ $52.90/mth)

Yes this is the normal recontract offer now.

Rrecently there was a superb recontract offer at S$34.90 but I already recontracted before the offer.

And for your case it is good to go with the cheaper S$39.90 plan as you want to upgrade to a better WiFi 6 router from the RT-AC68U.

Depending on your budget, you can go with RT-AX58U/82U/86U/88U or GT-AX6000 as the upgrade for your RT-AC68U. GT-AX6000 is a better buy than RT-AX88U on the higher end since you can get BNIB unit from Carousell (dumped by M1 users).

If you just care for Wireless performance, RT-AX82U is already good enough.
