My SH 100Mbps fibre contract is near expiring. I am shopping around for a fibre player with no cap on International bandwidth specifically China/HK, low latency and at least 300Mbps.
My options are:
(1) Stay with SH and upgrade to 300Mbps.
(2) ViewQuest for their claimed "no cap on Intl bw"
(3) MyRepublic for 1000Mbps but no data on Intl bw
I am not considering ST since performance is similar. Also not considering M1 as there is no differentiating features. Someone can correct me on M1.
I am quite attracted to VQ for its low latency. But a quick comparison using IDA's SamKnows tests seems to show that its international bandwidth performance is quite poor. However, it is traffic to US and no data present for traffic to China/HK. SO there remains unknown.
Then the price of MR's gigabit fibre seems very attractive. However, the same IDA chart shows it's other plans previously is the lowest performing. Also, understand they are leasing from Nucleus Connect, same infrastructure as SH. Then no impetus to migrate.
I am thinking of just choose option 1 and save all the fuss. Also understand that FTTH is on shared pipe so bottom neck always on the number of subscribers in your block. How true is this? I do not want to miss the opportunity to re-evaluate the broadband providers before us until another 2 years later. Any expert opinions or thoughts from people who have done the same exercise?
