I have put up a comparison of the Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network (Next Gen NBN) Fibre Price Plans offered by the 3 telcos in Singapore (SingTel, M1 and Starhub) and SuperInternet.
Conducted across eight Asia-Pacific markets (Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Taiwan), the second quarterly Digital Brand Index (DBI 2.0) continues to unveil insights about; the most discussed brands online, the most active channels and the subject areas that spark the most vibrant debate.
Researched during the last three months of 2009, DBI 2.0 found almost 1.5 million online technology brand mentions – double the level tracked in DBI 1.0, conducted July to September 2009. Other key findings from DBI 2.0 include:
It seems there are some 3G Connectivity issues with the Nexus One in Singapore for M1 and Starhub customers in Singapore according to some media report. SingTel customers should not have this issue because for SingTel customers, the Nexus One should auto-connect to their 3G network (a hint that SingTel maybe bringing in Nexus One?). For Starhub and M1 customers, they will need to enter in their APN settings to connect to the 3G network by going through the following steps:

My Starhub MaxOnline Premium broadband plan has expired a few months back. Rather then waiting till December 2009 for promotion, I decided to renew and go for the Enjoy 30% OFF MaxOnline Ultimate promotion (till 31st December 2009). The usual price for MaxOnline Ultimate is S$124.12 per month but with this promotion, it is just S$86.88 per month. The contract length is standard 24 months. Thus I made a savings of S$2,978.88 – S$2,085.12 = S$893.76 which is the price of a cheap laptop or a high end netbook.
The freebies include the delicious Motorola SURFboard SB6120 and free 12 months subscription of Norton 360 All-In-One Security Package Version 3.
I would like to start off with ADSL sucks and Cable is the way to go. It is retarded to authenticate and use a telephone line to start a connection as that is so 56K era. ADSL connection disconnect you more than cable. ADSL modem has full of settings that requires you to set in order for it to work normally, with cable, just plug the cable into your modem and you are ready to use the Internet. How easy can that get?
Yesterday, I went to the my mom office to solve a very peculiar Internet problem. My mom is using Singnet Business Internet which is like S$100 per month for a 512K downstream and a 256K upstream for more than a year before this problem occurs.
