ViewQwest Launches First 2 Gbps Home Fiber Plan in Singapore

Want to have the fastest home internet connection in Singapore? Check out ViewQwest – they are the first to offer a 2 Gbps plan, the fastest possible home broadband plan. You can sign up for this plan at the IT Show this Thursday.

Is 2 Gbps plan practical?

Most of our wireless devices maximum access speed is around 300-600 Kbps. Even if you do not use wireless, an individual wired connection typically support up to 1 Gbps only. Well, Viewqwest does have a comprehensive overview on how you can achieve the incredible power of 2Gbps bandwidth on a single computer. See the infographic below. This requires the use of a special MicroTik router coupled with special dual gigabit network interface cards on your computer. Honestly, I think the tech-savvy geeks will stay away from this plan (the sweet spot is 1 Gbps now). This is only suitable for those who want to brag about it, but really, just not practical.
