Of course, the first thing I have always wanted to find out is the Internet speed.

My sister-in-law told me that they are having a 10mbps 8Mbps package from Starhub, without hesistation, I hastened to check it out with Internetfrog.

It recorded an average speed of 1.5 Mbps.

One good thing compared to Malaysia's Streamyx is that over here in Singapore, you will get average of 1.5 Mbps day in and out. Well of course, I have tested it out for two days only.

Of course, one big difference that I noticed is that can finally load like a desktop application.
