    u are right, actually it is pointless IF the speed to oversea websites still the same..remember all the ISP are sharing the same pipeline and starhub already allocated certain bandwidth for its customers....so unless they increase the bandwidth allocated to them, else with all these ulimate plans surly jammed up everything...but i suppose they should have prepared
    We are HDD of PC & FT are MB add to storage;
    so PC never hangs with enormous storage capacity - LKY

    Wow... if outgoing bandwidth is limited, then those going for ultimate plans would be paying up their nose for nothing... Siao, man... Not worth it then... not sure whether this is the case. Any ways to check?

    I dun mind getting the ultimate plan. What worried me is the notebook... Is it worth while? The package didn't even include a AC adapter! and comes with 45 days warranty. Obviously, you have to pay more than that. In that case is it still worthwhile getting assuming I have paid for the necessary accessories and warranty to keep it going? How about the notebook spec?

    FYI, about the enhanced 256Kbps upload for the 2000 MOL users, you have to power down your Modem to get that upload speed. I was trying last night and uploading was still the same till I read the starhub website stated that..

    think tokrot meant refreshing the modem, meaning off it, den restart, to get the new speed.

    yup, each time the modem boots up, it get the configs from starhub. so in order to get the new increased upload speed, you need to restart your modem.

    Sorry, I didn't get my point across. What I mean is that to enjoy the 256kps upload speed if you are a 2000MOL user, just power down your modem and up once to enjoy the new speed. All you have to do is just one time..

    http://www.starhub.com/online/maxonline/index.html

    Read the small box in the link provided on the left please.

    It said "Enhanced upload speeds for MaxOnline 2000 customers!
    Simply power off and on your cable modem to enjoy enhanced upload speeds of up to 256Kbps right away."

    Can't they just put in the offer for current 6500 users? I signed up mine in Jan2005, and already got blown off when I heard they are giving a Linksys wireless G router 2 weeks after my signing, instead of the damn motorola wireless B junk.

    aiyah...no announcement from Starhub about upgrading their overseas bandwidth...looks like it's still throttled to keep peering costs down. So disappointed

    If you surf a lot of overseas sites, performance will not improve with this new plan.

    Starhub will automatically upload a new firmware to change the upload and download cap. You wont know if starhub already uploaded a new firmware to your modem. however to activate the new firmware, you need to reboot the modem and you only need to do it once.

    how i get to know this is because my internet was interrupted when they upload the new firmware to my modem, and after i reboot my modem...viola...my MOL 1500 become 6500

    Anyone has actual experiences with the download speed from oversea websites under all these increase speed? If the improvement is limited to sites in Singapore, I wonder what godd does it do.

    Accessing Club Snap will be lightening fast that's about it.
