M1 Broadband

I have decided to add in a new catagory – Local. Posts that falls under this would be local news, happenings and such.

M1 redefines Singapore’s home and office broadband market with the launch of ‘M1 Broadband’ service. This would mean more competition for the rest of the internet service providers. It is also the first island-wide wireless broadband service.

There are 3 tiers to their plans. The Broadband 384, Broadband 1800 and Broadband 3600.

Broadband 384 feels kinda like Symmetric Digital Subscriber Line (SDSL).

I do really wonder how this would take off though. Given that there will be free wireless connectivity coming 2007 (for the next 2 years for internet service providers besides singnet which are doing it for 3 years) at selected town centres. My town centre’s in the list as well :) And I’m about 20 – 30m away from the zone.

The free wireless, also known as, Wireless@SG will offer free 512 kbps (kilobits per second) wireless access at hot spots. I guess it would be used for simple internet surfing and email checking. I do wonder about the security issues for these. Oh well, we’ll have to wait and see what happens.

  1. Today, with all the fast way of life that everyone leads, credit cards get this amazing demand throughout the economy. Persons from every area are using the credit card and people who aren’t using the card have made arrangements to apply for just one. Thanks for revealing your ideas about credit cards.Chinese Food Menu

  2. I have observed that over the course of building a relationship with real estate proprietors, you’ll be able to get them to understand that, in every real estate transaction, a percentage is paid. Finally, FSBO sellers never “save” the percentage. Rather, they fight to win the commission by way of doing a agent’s job. In doing so, they invest their money and also time to accomplish, as best they could, the duties of an agent. Those jobs include uncovering the home via marketing, representing the home to buyers, developing a sense of buyer urgency in order to make prompt an offer, organizing home inspections, handling qualification investigations with the lender, supervising maintenance, and facilitating the closing.
