Just upgraded to 100Mbps service! Fitting new router Friday. Yes, expensive compared to Singapore but actually only RM40 per month more than I'm paying now for 20Mbps.

As I'll be using Cloud services more, this is a welcome development. Will let you know how fab it is (or otherwise) on Friday.

Oh dear, put back until Monday.... apparently they need to shut your present service down the day before and I just could not let that happen today! Will update when up and running!

Just out of interest....do you find speed varies depending on the device you are using? I've just got TIME. Very variable speeds. I have rather old devices (must upgrade) but my ailing laptop claims to be getting 100+ Mbps . My ancient IPad gives variable speeds between 47 and 70 Mbps . I'm a bit clueless.

Mind.....it's all better than the 8 Mbps I was getting from TM Streamyx before it conked out completely

There will be a difference between, say,a PC connected to the router via ethernet cable and an iPad connected via wifi and bouncing around a few internal walls.

All these figures reflect your local connection speeds, once you are connecting to websites in other continents you are constrained by many other factors and you may well see throughput not similar to your old 10mbps connection.

I luv popping in to these threads.
In Singapore I use the FREE 1 Mbps internet service.
It gives me everything I could possibly want.
I watch BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, youtube, Live sports on many different internet channels and live TV all WITHOUT any buffering. Smooth as smooth could be.
I can't give you my ookla as I'm in UK at the moment but there must be a few of my ookla speed test results somewhere in other threads.

Only problem is whenever I return to Singapore it takes quite a while to update windows, firefox etc etc etc, but when that's done I'm fine for everything.

So yah boo sucks.

Oh and I use a wifi connection which for my desktop travels through 3 solid pc concrete internal walls and I can use my desktop. laptop and internet on the tv watching films and BBC etc all at the same time without any buffering.
Dunno why this is, it just is.

8 on Streamyx! Wow, we were lucky to get 2! When the phone cable didn't break that is! We're all wifi here (apart from the cable from modem to wireless router) and it does vary with where you are and how fast the wifi card is in your device. Anything before 802 n (I think) is 54 Mbps or less I believe.

My ping probably had to get to Singapore via the Second Link

I wish I could say the same. It might be all to do with bandwidth and number of users. In our old place it was impossible to stream movies from iTunes or Netflix, BBC iPlayer wouldn't work, kids had trouble logging on to homework sites (so they said). Total nightmare!
The 20 Mbps service was fine.... never had any issues with it. But, for an extra MYR35 per month, it was a no brainer really, especially as I'm thinking of signing up to a cloud-based backup service. The better the speed the faster the backing up! But we are paying for it!! And it isn't cheap compared to Singapore.

From what I can see in Singapore you can get 1Gbps for between RM120 and 150 pm.
But as everywhere there are so many different deals you can go bonkers trying to find the best.
I seldom if ever use a smart phone but again trying to find the best deal for me is virtually impossible because every provider has numerous different deals available.

Do providers do this on purpose to confuse people???

Yes, that makes my eyes water.... 10X the speed for about a third of the price! Never mind... our rent is cheaper!!

I've kind of given up looking for best deals... there's always a catch. I now just look for something that will work and is not too unreasonable. Sad eh??

So are your cars, petrol and I've heard a whisper that buying property in Malaysia is cheaper than Singapore.
Find it hard to believe though.

Yeh well bully for you ExReg but we are all in Malaysia where life generally is a fraction of the cost of Singapore. But, there ya go, some things better in Sing. Some things better in Malaysia. That is life eh.

IVV, I'm totally using the wifi not ether but....noted...thanks. I can see there is a plethora of variables here.

It's the same for me in rural Johor. Whenever I test my Streamyx connection it always falls short of 2Mbps.

Don't be like that bb.
I've got to find something to say in the Malaysia forum as the Singapore one is very quiet. Too quiet.
