    MaxOnline Ultimate with up to 25 Mbps of download speed, and at a monthly subscription fee of S$116 (S$121.80 with GST) offers great value, considering the per-unit rate is at a mere S$4.87/Mbps per month. Other competing residential broadband access plans that are available locally are priced at much higher per-unit rate.
    The price looks good too!

    Its sad that i dont have a brother to share my internet with. : (
    For those on this plan.... they can actually consider hosting their own photo... since speed is no long that big an issue.

    Quite a good deal IMHO, especially since they'll be throwing in an HP notebook (unknown specs for now) and a 10% discount on the monthly subscription.

    I'm on MOL 6500 and I'm quite tempted. Paying an additional $40 more and getting the above + 1 Mbit upstream appear to be quite a good deal (assuming they'd allow MOL 6500 subscribers to upgrade to MOL 25000).

    misato over at this HWZ thread has this to say, and I quote:

    http://h50025.www5.hp.com/hpcom/sg_e...4_PV160PA.html

    Here the rough spec.. the only listed is for its newer brother
    Note that no official statement has been given by starhub on the specs yet, so take everything you read with regards the specs as nothing but speculation.

    $121.8 x 90% = $109.6

    let's say if they give a cheapo laptop that only worth $1.5K when u sell it
    $1500 / 24 mths = $62.5

    so you are only paying $109.6 - 62.5 = $47.1 per mth!!!

    damn...i just sign a 2 years MOL6500 contract last month

    Looks like the specs quite disappointing.

    well..dunno why starhub website only list the laptop worth $1399

    even worse case....u sell the laptop at $1000

    average each month you will save about $42

    so actually you are paying $68 only...which is cheaper than what i am paying for MOL6500 now

    and you get 4 times higher download, and 3 times higher upload speed
