    Default Why Is My Internet So Slow?

    Recently, i'm having real slow moving internet speeds. Despite having sign up with Singtel 8Mbps plan, i still have internet speeds that can be dead slow and don't even load up. This prompted me to have a poll on the internet service in Singapore.

    I'm in Hong Kong but having trouble accessing several sites such as Youtube and many Singapore websites. Possibly because of this as well.

    Same here - I'm now in Japan and found that the access to Singapore sites are very slow this evening.

    Perhaps the slowness & problems of Singtel can be attributed to the fact that they are using old telephony lines to deliver content. You can have a "formula 1 modem / wireless router", but if the choke point is the cables themselves .. well .. u get the picture

    I can't even use facebook, the pages all load up funny.


    Why can't they learn to use other means of transmissions, they take so much money from us, but they can't even upgrade their infrastructure.

    You mean like what..... Laser ?? Wormhole ?? Throught Time & Space ?? Using a Hype Pulse Generater like in Mechwarrior

    The whole world uses this U/W Cable and if the Cable is damaged.... there's little anyone can do except re-route throught other Sever.

    Satellite transmission is already being used in some countries. Under sea cable is too unreliable. Everyone says costs is the factor, but i don't know what we human beings want to save on that little piece of plastic or paper. At the end of the day, when you die, you can't bring all of that into your 6 foot grave.
