StarHub Combines DOCSIS 3.0 and Velocity to OfferallStarHub MaxOnline (MOL) Customers Ultra-High Broadband Speeds



Singapore, 27 December 2006 – From tomorrow, Singapore will become the first country in the world to commercially launch 100Mbps residential broadband services nation-wide, as StarHub marks another milestone with its deployment of DOCSIS 3.0 technology.



To ensure that all MOL customers can experience the full capabilities of DOCSIS 3.0 and access ultra-high broadband speeds immediately, StarHub has combined this network upgrade with VELOCITY, StarHub’s content-collaboration programme that makes it easy for companies providing online content and services to host their applications in Singapore.



Combining the DOCSIS 3.0 access with the VELOCITY programme, StarHub has created a dual-mode network profile for each MOL cable modem connection:

1. A full-speed profile, for accessing locally-hosted content such as those provided by VELOCITY partners;
2. A prescribed-speed profile, for accessing other Internet content hosted overseas at the price point customers prefer;

Based on StarHub’s on-going residential broadband market research, this dual-mode network profile is used to better serve the needs of all MOL customers.

woah, exact same case here too. no matter what ports i open in the router, file transfer is always extremely slow. sort of given up hope liao. even when i place my com in DMZ mode, transfer speed still slow. only way was to take out my old modem and plug it directly to my com.:(

MSN transfer speed slow is due to their server. MSN transfer may not be point to point....(Someone please confirm). I use skype, transfer is solid!

Personal rant. I find the situation silly sometimes, 100Mbps is only the bandwidth on the last leg to the household. Singapore is still trying to look good on the surface because it lags behind Asian countries like HK and Korea in terms of price and content. But Starhub does have upper hand because of their strength/monopoly with cable TV content...at least for now.

selected sites - up to 100mbps
local sites - up to 32 mbps
US sites - 100 kbps
waiting for your torrent to finish at 10kbps - priceless
