I can only reiterate what I've reiterated and said many times on here before and that is that I'm using a free 1Mb/s connection here in Singapore and I can watch all the stuff from the internet , films tv progs, sport etc without buffering or stuttering.

Mind you few in UK believe that to be possible.

In fact I can do that on two computers simultaneusly.

Here's my speed test result:

montakute: according to the BBC iPlayer help pages they stream HD at 2.8 Mbps & SD at 1.5Mbps. Netflix state that you require 5 Mbps for their HD streams. I am not sure why the big difference HD should all be 720p. So even allowing for a little extra for other noise & possibly using a VPN or DNS (DNS is more efficient than a VPN for streaming) provider 8 Mbps should be sufficient for HD streaming as long as that is what is delivered. I am on the verge of giving up on Time to deliver what they promised back in early November & am considering the Streamyx 8Mbps option. I managed to get a Amazon firestick up & running on 2 Mbps & using a DNS provider to get BBC iPlayer working fine on SD & with buffering on HD.

I'm surprised. From what I'd read, I thought TIME Fibre was one of the best (if not the best) internet options for the north of Penang - good speed, reliable and better customer service. But maybe not, huh?

He didn't actually say it was fibre but your right that TIME Fibre is the best option if you can get it.

I tried the internet speed on my 4G mobile phone, here in Tanjung Tokong. Ping time 36 ms, download speed 10.7 Mbit/s and upload speed 2.7 Mbit/s on Maxis's network. Depending on your needs and level of dissatisfaction with your current broadband connection could you consider to go to mobile internet.

The problem I have had with Time is that their representatives or local distributor came to Quayside where I live early November signing everyone they could up to their service. They took our personal & payment details promising us we would be up & running by Christmas & then nothing. Not a word. I have tried but had nothing useful from Time directly but managed to track down one of the distributors who provided a very unclear message about a problem with government approvals & hopefully some time in January. I too have heard that once you get the service it is pretty good & it is certainly better value than Streamyx's current offerings. There are some interesting offers with the mobile providers at present but they do have quite low limits during peak hours if you are planning to do any HD streaming.

Havey you tried emailing customer service at [email protected] ? I've found they're pretty good at responding to questions.

Hi IVV, yes I have exchanged emails with customer service, they were no help at all. I managed to track down one of the team from the distributor who signed us up & he has given an update & a vague statement about January. We shall see.
