My 2¢ here.
Absolute Fastest, Lowest Latency: Magix PremiumSurf 2.5Mbps
Note that if you move house, you have to pay quite a lot (~$150 in total, or last I heard)
Needs a phone line.
Best Value: Starhub MaxOnline
-Latency: Unstable (Packet Losses not Uncommon)
-Speed: UNstable, can be slower in the evenings
-Latency: Good (Unstable if in congested area, Little Packet loss for local)
-Speed: Good. Constant ~190KBps (Note: Cap is set at 1.5Mbits per second, or 187.5KBps)
Unstable Latency, often worse than Magix
In congested estates, speed and latency goes to hell.
One good thing about the cable modem is that one can unplug it and bring it anywhere in singapore to use. As long as there is a cable point and the signal strength is good enough, no problems. SCV doesn't care. (Someone enquired before)
Its like buying Holgas, if you get a nice one then you're good, if not....then fo lor..... .
