    hehe... my contract for SingNet just up, considering the $38 unlimited plan too $20 lesser than max online.

    Quite happy with the current speed of 512kbps, so calling SingNet later to check on the $38 plan, only concern is the 2 yr contract. Any views on e 2 yr contract?

    Hmm... why say BT is illegal?... it's fully depending on what you download, but of course, looking at what majority ( and I ) does...

    Most P2P applications are distributed legally under international regulations, but its the stuff that P2P users distribute. BT is definitely legal, I use it to synchronise files with my team members whenever there are large files to communicate with.

    I have been using MaxOnline since the SCV years under Student Plan of S$56/month, accounting up to 8 years this Friday, using the same modem I received 8 years ago, and still function as great.

    Benefits of using SCV MO:
    - Near true dedicated connection
    - Connect via a dedicated cable modem; no interference with telephone line
    - SCV have premier knowledge in broadband internet in SG
    - Fastest residential internet (DL) connection speed
    - No pre-connection prompt; dedicated, so disrupt-free connection
    - Easy configuration with routers and DIY servers

    Disadvantages:
    - High maintainance fees
    - Not entirely true dedicated connection; shared connection may be undesirable in high-density areas, like high-rise apartments, although speed will not fall below acceptable standards for broadband internet.
    - Unattractive promotion freebies.

    I wun know about SCV being first to serve broadband to home users. Singtel Magix is the first in sg to offer broadband as far as i remember. I subscribed to it back then.

    Singnet because my family has staff rate . But seriously, singnet will be more expensive in the long run. remembered when i signed my line 2 years (512mb), it was $58 i think. now it's like so much cheaper and higher decidated speed at a cheaper price. and remember that you're bonded to the line for 2 years. whether it's worth it or not, it's up to personal preferences. btw my line is up too! and i'm continueing with singnet. =)

    I was using Magix before. Line keep on dropping. Connection speed is bad. Complain to Singnet and they say everything is ok on their side. Said something wrong with my house line and ask me to recable the whole house. I said no way. Been using Starhub ever since.

    Did you know whichever DSL vendor you select they are the same infrastructure? you can use a SingNet DSL id and password on a PacNet DSL circuit and it will still work. Most of the problems are copper wire degrade or increased SNR due to wire aging etc...

    If in above situation better off to go with Cable as they are newer infrastructure, but the down side is that it is a shared infrastructure, I still preferred DSL over Cable, been using both PacNet and SingNet toggling between the two, whichever vendor gives me better value at the time of contract renewal, I go with them.

    haha... yeah, I'm still paying $58 for my plan now. Just check with SingNet, if dont want freebies (ie. ethernet modem), can sign the contract for 1 year instead.

    Think I'll carry on with SingNet for another year (cheaper by $240), and see if StarHub has any better plans in a year time.

    Magix was provided by SingTel, not SingNet, and it was introduced in 1997. SCV broadband services were introduced in December 1999.

    Hi, I need some help from the IT savvy pple here.

    My Singet BB 512K is expiring this coming April. Currently, I'm paying ard $68. If my contract ends, does it mean that I'll pay the prevailing rate of $48 for 512K or will they still bill me as $68/mth. Of course, I have the option of paying $38/mth after my contract ends but that will mean I need to recontract for 2 years and that it is long!

    My opinion is to continue at $48/mth without contract and maintain a "wait-n-see" for a few months to observe the trend in pricing. Or do you guys think that $38/mth for 2 years is an irresistable offer?

    What about Qala that you guys have been talking about. I've also heard about wi-max services being rolled out soon. Does it mean I can surf wirelessly anywhere? How soon would that be? 1 years time?

    Thanks,

    I've been renewing with Singnet by signing 12-month contracts only, each time going for the cheapest 12-month contract. This tactic lets me enjoy doubling in speed every year while paying same or reduced fee. However, this may not work for you depending on your usage pattern.

    they do have the 1 yr contract but they won't tell you unless you ask. i signed $47 for 1 yr last year.
