You talking about Open NET?

IMO still too expensive to switch....10MBPs will suffice :p

BTW you can ask lex, i think he is on fibre now Smile

Unlikely to be significantly lower lag...
I've connected from a few hotels which have fibre connection and the thing still has to connect to the states... I think physics determines that your lag will never be less than about 270.
When I connect to the Eu servers from the UK I get a ping of about 70

your advantages are going to be stability and bandwidth, not lag.

Pretty much.

Although which ISP you sign up to, not the difference between Fibre and normal cable, will make a difference upon your lag. Using Australian examples we have a number of different ISP's and while they all more or less use the same physical cables within Australia, the thing that determines their speed/connection to foreign sites, and especially stuff like WoW, is dependent on who operates their exchange in America (usually either their American version of the company or an allied associate).

Speaking from experience here in Australia, don't go with Optus over there. If they use the same exchange, it makes for incredibly pitiful gaming experience due to the way they route traffic towards the region in which the Nagrand server is hosted. Check a few gaming boards and see which ISP most singaporean gamers (perhaps specifically WoW gamers) go with as you tend to get a good idea of differences that aren't advertised by these companies and escape quite a few people :p

Hey valdr, im currently using open net aka fibre optics. My isp is M1. Latency is roughly down by 30points. So is ard 10% faster. I dun really think it's much faster for wow. Since as previously mention is the source. However, if we talk abt regular torrent download, it's much faster. If i get gd source, dl speed is up to 1.5mbps. My current record for one com of torrent is ard 5mbps.
Opennet is juz like getting a bigger bandwidth, if u get gd source, u get super fast dl.
I din sign for the plan, but roughly $90+ a month tt package the broadband and a phone line. With a 2 yr plan, i gt a hp envy laptop.

Thanks for the comments guys!

Lext, is there a free trial for m1? I concerned about their reliability. I switched from starhub to singtel years ago cos starhub sucks.

Dude, all 3 fiber connection in SG are still not stable ... price might be affordable but the instability is not something you would want ... imagine DST drop and you DC!!!

I did a free trial with M1 but it was limited time only, i doubt they will still offer that. Stability wise, i got no comment, cos i see no apparent disruption of services or latency fluctuation.
