Fibre Home Broadband in Singapore | M1 Fibre Optic Setup and Review | Singapore

The very moment when fibre optic cable laying started, I immediately opted for it. And soon enough, when the first telco M1 first launched fibre home broadband, I went ahead to sign for a 3 months trial without any consideration. Initially, it was full of issues:

a) Very low speed for both Up/Down stream [10/20] even I signed for a [50/100]b) No VOIP
c) VPN cannot work even when connection is made

But I am glad at least they have resolved all these issues after more than 2 weeks of interactions with them months back. I guessed this was the whole purpose of giving me free 3 months trial? Now the speed is blazing fast close to the promised specifications.

After going through the whole experience, I’ve decided to document down the key steps & considerations for all reference. Feel free to add and comment against these.

Steps to enable FIbre Home Broadband:

1) Check if your block / area is fibre connection ready
2) Sign up for the fibre optic cabling from common corridor box to your home. It pays to settle with the foreign workers to lay extra length of the cable for you at nominal rate. Else you can pay for the standard rates to extend the fibre termination point to your desired room. It is advise to terminate next to a power point (at least with 2 – one for OTP modem, one for Residential Gateway/Router)

3) After the cable is laid & tested, you can proceed to sign up with the TelcoM1, Starhub, SingTel. Pricing is competitive. But all fibre plans are more cost effective than the regular ADSL or Cable broadband plans. Do indicate to them if you are using their free RG or your own routers. Else a later switch, there will be downtime & you need to wait 5 days for the switch
4) Installation will happen in several separate occasions, unlike the regular service which can be activate in 1-3 days:
a. OpenNet team will install the OTP modem [2 weeks after sign up]. There are 4 LAN ports and each one is meant for a Telco provisioning.

b. Telco will come next to hook up the Residential Gateway (RG) or your own router to the respective ports in OTP modem. The ports will be configured & opened by them. You will not be able to do in advanced by your own. [1 week+ after OpenNet]

Other Tips:

1) Do not use the free standard Residential Gateway – security is bad, does not allow DHCP reservations, speed is bad (non-optimised router packet headers)
2) You can bridge rooms via LAN home plugs, but could limit your room-room connection speed to 12Mbps.
3) Always use Gigabit routers / switches to avoid bandwidth limitations across devices
4) Tested in my home setup : Linksys WRT610N, Aztech Gigabit home plugs, TP Link gigabit switch, Apple Mac Extreme router, Synology DiskStation 1511+
5) If you need the free VOIP service, you will need to use their RG.

Have fun & good luck!

    Bro, i have a few points to ask you,
    1) issit due to the RG, we are unable to get the full speed?( subscribe 100 mbps)
    2)which after market router has VOIP?
    3)other then the RG, what is the best recommended router i can buy?
    Thanks

      1) thru the last observations after I switched back to my older Linksys router, yes, it seems like the default RG is limiting it’s full routing speed.
      2) currently non in the consumer router space
      3) go for the latest cisco e series. Reliable and compatible with fibre (indicated by them).

        Thank you for your reply,
        What is the procedure after i get a router like CISCO E series? eg, like informing M1?

          Ring the customer contact 1627, tell them yr decision. They will have to reconfigure with openNet and it will take 8-10 working days. You will also be advised to return the huawei router initially given by them.

    Hi,

    Network newbie here, hope you can help me.

    I’ve just subscribed to M1 Fibre Optic Plan (100Mbs).
    When the guy came to installed the fibre optic modem, I asked him if the other ports (other than the one that was connected to the RG) were useable, he said ‘yes’. I’ve tried connecting to my Macbook and it work, I was able to surf, got about 76Mbs speed (using Speednet.com.sg).

    However, the wireless reception from the RG itself is only 28Mbs (Download) and 30Mbs (Upload), Is the RG so lousy? Or is it normal to have such a big signal drop when comparing to the wired line connection? And I’m just a arm-length away from the RG!

    From the RG, I have a line connected to a Aztech HL110E powerline Homeplug. I have another Aztech HL110EW powerline Homeplug in my study room and my bedroom.
    The problem is, the speed at both rooms are even worse, only 18Mbs (Download) and 21Mbs (Upload).

    The funny thing is:

    With the RG connected to Port 1 of the fibre optic modem, I connect a wired ethernet line from Port 2 to my Macbook, I was able to surf. Was also able to surf wirelessly thru the H110EW in both rooms

    However;

    With the RG connected to Port 1 of the fibre optic modem, I connect a wired ethernet line to from Port 2 to the HL110E, I was unable to surf wirelessly thru the HL110EW in both my study room and bedroom. But I did get a very strong ‘fan’ indication on my Macbook, but I can’t open any website.

    Isn’t the powerline Homeplug is just a “wired” extension from the fibre optic modem?

    Is there any setting to do so it might work?

    • Alan Soon
      April 22, 2011 at 7:51 pm

      The ports of the fibre modem is meant to differentiate service providers. E.g. Port 1 to M1, Port 2 to Starhub etc. So with only one ISP, only one port is active.

      For RG, if it’s a wireless G device connection, you will get typically 30MBps instead of official max of 54Mbps.

      There should be nothing wrong with your home plugs which will limit yr connection speed between rooms to around 20Mbps.

    I just had starhub fibre broadband set-up on Sat and the technician said it would take 2 days to be activated or when the internet logo on the Huawei router turns green. Last evening the logo turned green and i could connect to internet but the speed is very disappointing; download speed was about 1+ mbps vs 10+ mbps under my current cable broadband (although the fibre router is in living room vs the cable router in the study, but the speed falloff could not be so significant right!?). Also could not ping an upload on the fibre connection to test upload speed. Or is it the fibre connection not fully activated yet?

    • Alan Soon
      April 25, 2011 at 8:39 pm

      1+ mbps is way too slow. I had the same issue when I first installed M1. After much resolutions by their backoffice (apparently its OpenNet), the speed resumed to normal. Do wait for a the promised date as OpenNet guys are usually slow based on my experience.

    Hi, plan to sign up the 100Mbp plan from M1 at comex. The staff there advise me to buy the Linksys E4200 router at $189. Was told that is it better then the given one by M1. Dunno izzit true? Can you advise me on that? Coz i’m not a IT person. Thanks

    • Alan Soon
      September 3, 2011 at 10:28 am

      Definitely, The bundled huawei router signal is not as superior. But if you are subscribing to the free VOIP, no choice, you need to get it. Else you can use a different router. E4200 is the latest from CIsco-Linksys and is very reliable. If I am not wrong, it is dualband. Good luck to your bargain hunting!

    Hi Alan,

    Open Net has install the fibre optic terminal at HDB flat some months back when they carry out this installation project island wide. I did not sign up for the broadband as they were not launched yet. Currently I have to renovate my falt and as such I need to relocate the terminal to a different location in my flat. When I call Open Net to enquiry I was told to pay $220 plus GST and have to wait till next year for an appointment.

    The job is actually very simple because it is still a short distance (about 10 meter) from the entrance to my flat. Can I get my own contractor or even myself to re-run the trunking and mount the terminal?

    Please advise is there any other alternative or is other means of doing this without incurring this high cost?

    Thank you.

    Francis

      I doubt you can access the splitter unit outside your house and fibre cables are fragile and not easily re-routed unless by the specialist. Instead of rerouting the port, you can get a longer tap cable to your OTP modem subsequently, but would mean running longer in a casing.

    Hi Bro!. In your blog you mentioned it is not advisable to use the router that the provider is recommending .I intend to use M1. Can you recommend a router which is quite stable both in wifi and security? I dun intend to use the VOP. Thanks .

    heys…. i need some help on some m1 queries. I bought TL-WR841N model of TPlink router. i have signed up for 100mbps download, 50 upload m1 fiber broadband. unfortunately i only manage to get 50mbps download speed and 40+ upload speed. The upload speed im ok… however the download speed is abit too low? do u come across any solution to fix this issue? thnx for ur help. 🙂

    Alan,

    Networking noob here.

    I am currently subscribed to 100Mbps M1 fiber. I am considering buying TP Link TL-WR741ND to connect to the Nucleus Connect RG for wireless internet. Do you think this will work? and any heads-up on the settings that i will face? or any website that can help me with this, because i was told the setting up might be too tough for me?

    what would you do if you are me?
    1) remove RG or leave it?
    2) static or dynamic IP?
    3) to add a access point or not?
    4) 150Mbps or 300 Mbps router? bottleneck issues?

    Thanks

    • Alan Soon
      November 1, 2011 at 11:12 pm

      Hi Gerald,

      The standard Huawei RG is already a wireless router. But if you meant connecting a new TP Link router and connect to the Nucleus Connect RG, you will need to call M1 to ‘delist’ the Huawei and list your TP Link before you can establish any connection.

      1) As per answer above.
      2) static or dynamic IP is subscribed with ISP. it only matters if you are setting up your own hosting services / website which needs a fix IP to resolve self-owned domain
      3) Access point is needed to wireless extend an existing non-wireless router
      4) Those N+ routers can perform at their specified high connection bandwidth only if the client end install the same equivalent N+ dongle.

      • Lee KS
        November 2, 2011 at 9:02 am

        Alan,

        do you mean Nucleus Connect (NC) modem is a wireless device as well? i dont have a Huawei RG, if that’s what you are referring to.

        3) so i probably just need a AP since my Nucleus Connect modem is not a wireless device and AP will add that function to it. if i choose this, i still need to have the NC in place, hence there will not be downtime, right? but you dont have much good impression of NC modem, do you?

        4) does the dongle comes with the purchase of AP / routers? client means my laptop, right? my laptop supports b/g/n wireless. do i still need this dongle?

        • Alan Soon
          November 4, 2011 at 11:15 pm

          Not sure about the NC modem, thus cannot comment much from here.

          4) the normal dongle supports the regular G/N specifications. For specialised boosters, they have their own compression technology to achieve higher throughput, though when connect with regular standards, the performance falls back to the norm.

    Hi Alan
    Tdy m1 came to install the modem
    I also got the RG
    But thr is no signal coming out frm the OpenNet TP..
    (red blinking LOS on the modem)
    m1 says this will hav to wait for OpenNet to open up their connection
    I’m not sure how long this is going to take…any idea?

    Next issue is that everything else is in the living rm (modem+RG)
    I’m using a fax (wifi enable Fuji xerox docuprint M205Fw)
    Although it can be wireless to connect between the RG >fax>laptop
    But wat abt the tel cable? As I’m using free voice(can be use for fax too) does that means the tel cable still hav to plug into the RG to receive free voice?
    I presume I can plug into our wall plug tel port right? Everything muz be connect to RG ?

    Hope to hear frm u soon
    Thks

    “1) Do not use the free standard Residential Gateway – security is bad, does not allow DHCP reservations, speed is bad (non-optimised router packet headers)”
    1)Do you mean that the router can be changed to any other router for the use of the Internet?
    2)if I subscribed to m1 for the fibre optics is it possible to use let’s say a Singtel router for the Internet?
    3)do you by any chance know why is the connection unstable? ( meaning speed changes from 58mbps to 104mbps every few seconds)

        My wife’s Cisco VPN drops out after 5 to 40 minutes on M1 fiber, my Cisco VPN is fine. The settings are all the default and there is no problem with any services, speeds are blazing fast upload and download.

        The funny thing is that on Starhub cable, the wife’s Cisco VPN is fine and so is mine.

        Routes from M1 and Starhub to the VPN address are similar, nothing looks wrong there.

        I got a feeling it might be the VPN hardware settings at her office end that has an issue with the M1 packets. By any chance does your VPN client route you through a 203.117.x.x (“Cyberway”)address?

    Hey there, useful blog!

    I’ve been doing a bit of investigation into this myself. My girlfriend recently got the 100/50 fibre package from M1 and is currently using their supplied Huawei router and a pair of Aztech 200mbps HomePlug AV to connect her iMac in the bedroom (HL110E at the router end, HL110EW (WiFi extender version) at the other end). I believe that M1 mis-sold her the HomePlugs, especially the more expensive WiFi version, as a half-assed solution to the problem of their supplied router being rubbish, but that’s not relevant.

    When I plug my laptop directly into the RG I reliably speedtest at 90mbps+ downstream and 30mbps+ upstream — no complaints there. However, the Aztech HomePlugs are proving somewhat more uncooperative. In the morning the speed to the iMac over the HomePlugs averages around 40mbps/28mbps, and indeed that is reflected in the 4.8MB/s average (~5.25MB/s peak) that I can pull from Usenet (Giganews .hk server – 8 hops ~40ms away). However, some time around the middle of the afternoon the HomePlug speed drops dramatically to ~22mbps/11mbps, while a direct link to the router remains stable at 90+.

    When I first set about trying to optimise the HomePlugs, I unplugged every other electrical appliance in the house and made sure both ends of the HomePlug were plugged directly into the wall with no multiplugs or splitters. This made very little difference. I suspect my dramatic drop in speed is caused by someone else in the block also using HomePlugs, and a lack of electrical isolation between apartments (it’s a 1960s HDB) is causing their signals to interfere with mine thus my HomePlugs have to perform additional noise compensation and throughput drops right off.

    Now if that’s the case there’s not much I can do to remedy it. However, I am wondering whether it’s maxing out at an absolute speed or as a percentage of the theoretical maximum and therefore would it be worth an upgrade to the 500mbps HomePlug? I figure that a single link getting even 15% of the theoretical maximum would mean a much more useful ~75mbps. Reckon it’s worth a shot, or would I be better to hold out for 802.11ac devices to appear and go back to WiFi?

    Sorry, that got a bit long! In conclusion, HomePlugs are pants and I’d much rather just run 20m of Cat5 through the house, but apparently that’s not an option… :/

    March 5, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    The Huawei Home Gateway is absolute crap. For starters it has a bug in the firmware that kills the downlink of a VPN connection after a certain number of bytes. I can recreate this each and every time, just need to download a large file over my company VPN. Funnily enough it only happens when using the LAN connection into the router, it works fine via WiFi. And yes, there is nothing between the laptop and the router and yes, it works fine if the laptop is plugged straight into the fiber modem and on any other wired LAN port, i.e. in a hotel.

    M1 tried to fix the problem by giving me another router, that one didn’t work at all. I have router #3 now and the VPN problem still exists.

    I’m sure the router is cheap, but that’s all – it’s cheap and nasty. M1 – you can do better, learn from your mistakes and stop buying this Chinese crap.

    Hi,
    I am hoping to sign up for a M1 fibre 150mBps plan.

    I need to choose between the two Cisco routers provided by M1 (E1200 & E4200). Can you please advise on the benefits and negatives of choosing either of them.

    My usage;

    * around 6-7 of us will be using the internet at the same time.
    * Do alot of online multiplayer gaming(PC).
    * Will do online gaming on xBox 360
    * Internet TV

    The thing is, not sure if E1200 is sufficient for this. If so no need to pay so much for the E4200.

    Thanks in advance

    • Alan Soon
      April 29, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      Personally, the higher series do offer better distance coverage. E4000 series allow streaming via the second band (5 Ghz) which may not be as congested as the regular band (2.4 Ghz). With requirement for concurrent throughput, you may want to consider at least E3000 series.

    Hi Alan,

    Weeks ago,I installed fiber 100mpbs with Starhub and issued with D-Link router DVG-N5402SP Since then, been experiencing a loss of connection and I suppose the router don’t work well.

    Correct me if I am wrong, can I just buy the EA4500 linksys router and hook up by myself? Or do I need to infrd Starhub to do some configuration?

    Thanks in advance.

    Best Regards.

    Alan, great to read this info.

    my mio home expiry 23 July. Looking to sign up M1 fibre, it may take 2-3 weeks to install. Can I sign up now – I need to pop in my ST home line to VOISP? Can I use my existing CISCO wireless-N ADSL router WAG160N. will it work? we have 4 users at home?

    • Alan Soon
      July 5, 2012 at 8:50 pm

      Fibre service make used of the new fibre infra which is different & separate from ADSL (tele line). Thus, the ADSLmodem cum router will not work. A new fibre modem and the huawei gateway (router) will be provided by default which comes with a mthly rental cost + free VOIP service. Once setup, all your (4) users can wirelessly connect for internet service.

      But you will not have your MIO TV subscriptions. More info, pls check with M1 directly before sign up.

    Hi Mr Alan. I’m having problems with my fibre broadband, I’m not really good at networking stuff here.
    Currently my parents have signed up for the M1 100mbps ($39/mth), we have been using it for two months at least. However, when I download files, the download speed was slow. Once I tried downloading a around 250mb file, the speed was as slow as 40kbps and it certainly took a long time. When I test the internet speed on speednet.com (international), the results were incorrigible at less than 5mbps for many countries.
    I have read thru your post and many comments left by other readers, I thought that the problem of my slow download speed may be related to my modem and router.
    Currently, I’m using the bundled Huawei RG and Linksys E1200 router(bought). My laptop is connected to the router with a LAN cable, and the router is connected to the RG with a ethernet cable. Could the connections be a problem? Or whether the RG and router are unable to bring out greater speeds? Is there any advice on how to raise the speed? I’m really desperate to improve it.
    I hope Mr Alan would be able to give me some advice, many thanks in advance.

      Under standard plan, they will provide the Huawei Gateway as illustrated in my post. Else, you can ref the setup as shared with your choice of the routers in the market. Cisco E4500 is the top end model.

      There are a few options.
      (1) Teether through your existing smartphone
      (2) Buy a mifi (which you can insert your data sim card. You can search for my previous mifi post for a quick overview

    Hi Alan, I am a dumb IT idiot. When the fibre cable was installed, I had it next to the tv with 2 power points. Today, we upgraded our plan and had to place the new router and modem there. As a result, the 2 points were taken up and I cannot watch tv. I have 1 point for TV and another for cable tv box.
    I use a 5-in one extension power block. I am afraid it will overload when all switches are used at the same time.
    It seems it is a lot of trouble and money to rerun the fibre cable. What should I do?

      You can use a good extension block for all the low powered devices (e.g. modem, router, switch etc). TV & sound amp should be standalone. Not worth re-routing your fibre termination point. 🙂
