Best ISP in singapore oahgneg Dec 15th, 09, 12:51 AM #1

So anyone have any idea which is the best ISP in singapore?

At least better than singnet(loses internet connection too often) or starhub(I've seen faster dead snails)

Loss of internet connection is usually caused by poor home telephone line quality (eg. too many extension points, poor line quality, etc).

Used to face that problem regularly when I first had my SNBB on our main phone line (which has like 10 to 12 extension points throughout the house).

After switching over to our home fax line (w/o extension socket), the broadband connection is now extremely stable and never d/c even after operating 24/7 for over a year.

depends how u see it, if u "condemn" the 2 main ISPs, what else do u get.. lol

my gf's place SNBB usually DC when i hit the cap limit (especially when both connections are gaming/torrenting) whereas my house starhub got no cap but congested traffic due to my area (boonlay =.=)

i'll prefer starhub over snbb anytime though

Yup both Pacnet and M1 are relatively good in connection. In fact, M1 bb has the cheapest plans among all the ISPs, and has both solid ADSL and cable connections.

Singnet for dense residential.

Well, I've been using SNBB (landlord's connection) for the past 3 years, and so far it has been rock stable. Speeds are also as advertised, so no complaints from me.

I'm using M1BB and I must say it's a pleasant experience. Before that I was using Starhub and when I host DotA in Garena, my friend always complained about delay and lag. P2P was a nightmare too, speed was horribly slow. (well, maybe it's the modem settings, but I dun care! So ex. and yet sucks! zzz)

My M1BB has got no delay or whatever shit when hosting games now. In fact, M1 uses Starhub's cables' technology or whatever, but somehow it's way much faster and smoother than Starhub. The price is also cheaper and worth it.

There's no such thing as fixed de for the download and upload speed cuz many factors will affect it mah. So it's "Up to 2Mbps"

Starhub MOL Ultimate + a private high speed VPN services provider = no throttling. I can move 80+GB each way a single night.

Lucky fella... My MOL 8k is hard throttled to 3m every night.. Which I don't quite mind if they actually bothered to have working slowdown mechanisms rather than just dropping packets wholesale.
