Price Guide to Business Broadband Plans for Offices in Singapore
- by Chee Jean Wen
- July 24, 2023
- 5 minute read
Choosing a business broadband plan can be very different to signing up for a residential broadband package. In some instances, you may not even have the option of choosing between the two, as your address may dictate the type of broadband plan you can sign up for.
Having a stable, speedy and secure internet connection is essential for nearly all businesses – regardless of size. A fast broadband service can increase productivity among employees and reduce frustration levels at work (especially given the rise of video conferencing requirements). Additionally, businesses also need to double down on security features as they become more vulnerable to cyber attacks today.
That said, business needs differ across companies; what one company requires, another might not. Therefore, it is important that you opt for the most suitable broadband that meets your business needs and fits within your budget.

Dynamic VS Static Business Broadband
There are two kinds of business broadbands provided by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) in Singapore – static broadband and dynamic broadband.
A static broadband offers a static IP address (meaning that the IP address does not change) while a dynamic broadband uses dynamic IP addresses (meaning that your IP address is subjected to change).
In general, using dynamic IP addresses costs less though it may not be suitable for all business applications. Your company’s Chief Technical Officer (CTO) or tech advisor will be able to advise you on whether your business requires the use of static IP address(es). In general, businesses may require static IP if you host your own web and email servers or need remote access to external devices. If this isn’t already on your radar, chances are a standard dynamic broadband package should be good enough for you.
We compare business broadband plans (monthly pricing) offered by 5 Internet Service Providers – Singtel, M1, StarHub, MyRepublic and ViewQwest.
With the exception of MyRepublic, the rest of the providers offer 24/7 technical support . Businesses that are subscribers of MyRepublic may contact their technical support team between 9am to 2am. This can be a consideration if you are running an e-commerce, digital media or certain other types of businesses that may require round-the-clock support.
Do note that these prices exclude any promotions or bundles offered by the ISPs.
Dynamic Broadband For Businesses
Observations for dynamic broadbands for businesses.
The price for dynamic broadbands (based on their internet speed) for all 4 ISPs are similar though the cheapest is offered by StarHub at $87 for 350Mbps.Singtel is also offering promotional rates for the first year for as low as $89 per month for their 500 and 700 Mbps [eVolve (Dynamic IP) plans]. MyRepublic on the other, only offers 24-month plan, but does not reveal any the price details for its business broadband plan, and we need to fill up a contact form to start the enquiry process.
Nevertheless, most business broadband providers offer plans with terms of 12, 24, or 36-months. with Starhub and ViewQwest offering 12-month options as well. The longer term plan, the cheaper the monthly subscription charges.
Aside from from monthly subscription costs, businesses can also take into consideration other benefits like the modem, installation costs and other costs of add-on services such as security protection when deciding between different broadband plans.
Static Broadband For Businesses
Observations for static broadbands for businesses.
Singtel only provide static fibre broadband plans at lower internet speeds. This likely means you sign up for it as an add-on to another dynamic broadband plan. Starhub and ViewQwest provide a more diverse variety of plans at different speeds that may suit different business purposes.
For businesses that require multiple IP addresses, M1 and Singtel both offer 8 free static IPs as part of their plans. M1’s static business broadband offers 1Gbps and comes with a security suite. For this specialised requirement, businesses have to fork out $351.25 per month. Another option is to sign up for a dynamic broadband plan and top up for a static line when needed.
Do note the list of ISPs is non-exhaustive and there are other ISPs in the market.

Best fibre broadband in Singapore 2023: Singtel vs StarHub vs M1 vs others
It used to be that unless you were a hardcore gamer, there was no reason to get a fibre broadband plan.
However, considering that most of our lives are conducted online now, a high-speed internet arguably improves our nasty, short and brutish lives.
Also, gone are the days when a 1 Gbps broadband plan would set you back by $399 a month. Since 2015, thanks to price wars, these ridiculously fast internet speeds have remained inexpensive, with the cheapest plan at $34.90 a month then. In 2023, there are even more freebies.
Look no further—we compare all the available plans in Singapore for you here.
Best fibre broadband plans in Singapore 2023 (24-month contract)
Here's how much a 24-month contract would cost you:
(updated Sept 8, 2023)
*Fibre Termination Point (FTP) installation is only for homes that are not reached by fibre broadband yet. You can do a quick search to check if your house is covered at netlinktrust.com .
Installing an FTP costs $162 for HDB and condominiums, or $291.60 for landed houses. This is imposed by the NetLink Trust (NLT), an initiative led by the Singapore government that manages the infrastructure of Singapore's Nationwide Broadband Network (NBN). A few telcos waive the FTP installation fee, such as MyRepublic.
The total includes FTP installation. It includes a service activation fee from NLT of $57.24 (inclusive of GST) , which is separate from ONT/Router activation.
Take note that price is not the only concern when you are choosing a high-speed internet plan. Let's go into detail below.
1. WhizComms 1 Gbps fibre broadband plan
Cheap has always been WhizComms selling point. Whatever the competition charges, they will come up with a plan that is just slightly cheaper.
Its 12-month plan currently costs $41.04 per month, but the 24-month plan costs $29.90 (U.P. $35.64) per month—the cheapest in the market. You get free weekday activation and installation (9am to 5.30pm).
It's basically marketed as a no-frills plan, so there's nothing much to shout about unless you just want your fibre broadband dirt cheap.
If you need a broadband plan with a wireless router, WhizComms offers a 24-month plan with a TP-Link Archer AX55 AX3000 for $33.90/month (U.P. $42.12).
Do note that the WhizComms promotional rates are valid till Sept 10, 2023.
Good for: People who prefer the most no-frills, cheapest option.
2. M1 1 Gbps Fibre Broadband bundle
At $40.27 per month, the 24-month 1GBps fibre broadband plan from M1 is affordable, especially considering the other goodies M1 throws in. Aside from the attractive price, new sign-ups get:
- Free wireless router: TP-Link Archer AX72 (AX5400) or Asus RT0AX3000P (AX3000)
- 24 months 4G Mobile Broadband
- Home fixed line
- Free modem to termination point activation, also known as Optical Network Terminal (ONT) activation (worth up to $90.84) only for weekdays 9am to 6pm
Normally, M1 imposes the following charges for their fibre broadband services:
But when their broadband subscriptions are under promotion, M1 may waive these fees. Under the current M1 promotion for 24-month broadband (which is ongoing till Dec 31), M1 is waiving both the registration charge and activation charge, the latter waiver with some conditions:
- The one-time registration charge of $59.40 is waived for "eligible new customers without a current service contract who sign-up for any new 24-month M1 Fibre Broadband plan during the Promotion Period via M1 website", as per M1's fibre broadband T&Cs, under the "24-month Fibre Broadband Promotions" section.
- Waived in full for weekdays from 9am to 6pm.
- Discounted up to $59.40 for weekdays after 6pm, weekends and public holidays. During these timings, you have to pay the balance of $31.44.
Good for: Business users who will benefit from the mobile broadband usage.
3. StarHub 1 Gbps Fibre Broadband
StarHub's 1Gbps fibre broadband plan is one of the most value for money plans out there. Pay $37.89 per month and get:
- Free one WiFi 5 router with one LAN port
- Three months of Amazon Prime
- Free service installation worth $90.84
However, there's an activation fee of $57.24 chargeable.
Note that the price of $37.89 is the effective price when you sign up online with the promo code FREE3MTH. This gives you three months of free subscription.
Good for: Shoppers who would benefit from access to Amazon Prime.
4. ViewQwest 1 Gbps Bundle Plan
ViewQwest doesn't really have the brand name of the big telcos, but their fibre broadband’s selling point is three months' worth of free Freedom DNS.
What's Freedom DNS? It's basically like a VPN that gets around all geo restricted videos by rerouting your connection to streaming sites as if you are really connecting from the designated country.
This means you can access previously geo-restricted content, like YouTube, Hulu, or even Netflix US. Freedom DNS is more convenient than traditional VPNs because it is automatically enabled and doesn't require you to manually change your VPN's region when necessary. After three months worth of Freedom DNS, you will pay $10.70 per month to continue it if you want to.
For $28.99 (U.P. $39.99) a month, you get:
- Free three months SecureNet (worth $23.97)
- Free three months FDNS (worth $32.97)
- Waived admin fee (Worth $54.00)
- Included modem rental (worth $267.50)
- Free delivery or onsite installation (+$100.93)
Good for: People who value privacy and/or want to watch region-locked dramas.
5. MyRepublic Ultra 1 Gbps Fibre Broadband
MyRepublic Ultra 1 Gbps Fibre Broadband is definitely not the cheapest on the list, but they bundle more freebies and if you are their mobile customer, you stand to benefit more.
At $39.99 per month, the MyRepublic 1Gbps with TP-Link EX510 WiFi-6 Router Bundle gets you:
- TP-Link EX510 WiFi-6 router worth $269
- Free home phone line with unlimited local calls
- Free Termination Point installation (worth up to $162 for New Customers with No Prior TP)
If you are living in a property that's not home-reached yet, you can take advantage of the free FTP installation service, which other providers may charge for.
Do take note that there is a service installation fee of $54 on top of the NLT Service Activation Fee of $57.24.
Good for: Those who would benefit from a free router and a local phone line thrown in.
6. Singtel 1 Gbps Fibre Home Bundle
The most affordable Singtel fibre broadband bundles is currently their 1Gbps Fibre plan (Dual pack), priced at $39.15/month.
Do note that this is a limited-time promotion, and the usual price is $54.15/month.
The plan comes with two complimentary quality mesh routers: one unit of Dual-Band AC access Point (WiFi 5) and one unit of Singtel Mesh Extender (WiFi 5). On top of that, Singtel throws in these goodies for their fibre plans:
- Weekday/weekend router installation waiver worth up to $146.35 (Online exclusive)
- Registration waiver (worth $54)
- 1-month Security Suite Triple Protect & Parental Control Pass (worth $16.04/month)
- 1-month Broadband Protect (worth $2.97/month)
- 3-month Microsoft 365 Family subscription (worth $14.80/month)
- 12-month Amazon Prime subscription (worth $2.99/month)
Good for: People who want lots of other benefits with their broadband plan, such as mobile broadband and Amazon Prime. If you want benefits, Singtel maxes them out.
Want even faster internet? Swap out the Wi-Fi 5 routers for a Wi-Fi 6 one with the the Singtel 1Gbps Enhanced plan:
7. Home fibre broadband set-up and hidden costs
Fibre broadband is the latest network that delivers high-speed internet. Several years ago the government set to deploy fibre broadband infrastructure to residential homes.
1. Set up Fibre Terminal Point (FTP)
The majority of homes in Singapore would have fibre broadband capabilities by now, following aggressive efforts by NetLink Trust to install the Fibre Terminal Point (FTP) for free, but if you missed that boat, now you have to pay.
After securing an appointment with NLT, usually through your internet service provider (ISP), NLT contractors will place FTP at a place of your choosing in your home. The cost is $162 for HDB and condominiums, or $291.60 for landed property. Some ISPs dangle free FTP installations as a carrot, such as MyRepublic.
NetLink Trust also charges an NLT service activation fee of $57.24, regardless of ISP.
Hidden costs: $162 or $291.60 for FTP installation (depending on property) and $57.24 for NLT service activation fee.
2. Set up modem and router with ISP
This process is also known as ONT activation, which most providers simply call service activation. Your ISP will connect the modem to termination point, and your router shares this connection to the entire house, so multiple devices can be connect to the fibre broadband network.
Before deciding on your ISP, look out for hidden fees such as registration fees and service activation fees. If you want the flexibility to change plans, you definitely want to also check that your ISP doesn't impose high termination fees in a bid to lock you down beyond the contract.
Hidden costs: Registration fee, service activation fee (or ONT activation fee), termination fees.

Singtel CEO on telco’s strategic reset: Half the job is done, hard part is behind us
SINGAPORE – Telco Singtel said the strategic reset it launched around 2½ years ago is bearing fruit in the form of enhanced earnings.
The firm reported on Thursday that it posted an 83 per cent increase in earnings to $2.14 billion for the six months to Sept 30, although a substantial chunk of this was due to a one-off gain after Indonesian associate Telkomsel integrated the operations of fixed broadband provider IndiHome.
Even if this gain is excluded and the adverse impact of the strong Singapore dollar is factored in, the group’s underlying net profit still rose at a decent clip of 12 per cent to $1.12 billion.
Singtel chief executive Yuen Kuan Moon told a briefing in Sydney on Thursday: “Our underlying performance was resilient in the first half despite a challenging macroeconomic backdrop and inflationary pressures.”
The firm’s balance sheet has strengthened steadily since the start of the reset, with cash holdings at a healthy $2.6 billion.
Mr Yuen said the group’s “financial position remained robust”, and it is well poised to continue to invest for growth.
This follows the streamlining of Singtel’s portfolio of assets, which has simplified the business.
The initiatives Mr Yuen set in motion included the freeing up of $7 billion of capital, with another $4 billion waiting in the pipeline over the medium term.
He also cleared out a slew of loss-making and non-core businesses, ploughing the freed-up cash into divisions with better growth potential.
The latest was the sale of threat-detection platform Trustwave, which will be completed in December and will mark the end of the group’s strategic review of non-core digital businesses.
This divestment alone is likely to result in the company posting more than $100 million in cost savings annually.
Mr Yuen noted: “Half the job is done; the hard part is behind us.
“We’ve simplified our organisation, so our businesses have greater agility to pursue growth, divested non-core digital businesses and strengthened our financial position.
“We’re in a stronger position to improve our return on invested capital and returns to shareholders.”
However, the challenge now is to show investors what Singtel’s share price ought to be after the reset, given that the stock has barely moved despite the group expanding the value of the sum of its parts significantly.
However, Mr Yuen believes that savvy investors will recognise the positive changes he has implemented.
DBS analyst Sachin Mittal noted that Singtel’s sale of loss-making businesses will help the upward re-evaluation of the stock price, but added that what matters more is increasing the operating profits of its core businesses.
Another analyst, who declined to be named, said further cost savings would help, and Singtel’s move to merge its consumer and enterprise divisions across both Singapore and Australia was a good start.
“However, we have to wait and see if this translates into meaningful margin expansion,” he added.
Meanwhile, Singtel’s ability to scale its growth engines – multinational information technology subsidiary NCS and the data-centre business under Digital InfraCo – will also help, as both are relatively small contributors to group earnings, he said.
Overall, the analyst felt that Singtel has made good effort in realising cost synergies and trying to drive non-telco revenues.

Black Friday broadband deals FAQs
When is Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year?
Black Friday falls on Nov. 24 in 2023. Cyber Monday follows on Nov. 27. While you can get some good internet deals during this time, you don't have to wait until those dates: many providers start their deals early in the month.
What is Cyber 5?
During this holiday sales season, you may hear the term "Cyber 5." It refers to the five-day sales frenzy between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday.
Can I save big on my internet during Cyber 5?
Potentially, yes. Slashed prices on products predominantly drive black Friday sales, but internet service providers are increasingly getting in on the action -- in some cases offering reduced monthly fees and others promising lucrative add-ons, like free streaming services or gift cards.

Home Depot, Lowe's may signal more pain from muted consumer spending, housing demand

Nov 13 (Reuters) - Wall Street is bracing for another quarter of weak sales from U.S. home improvement chains Home Depot (HD.N) and Lowe's (LOW.N) as demand remained under pressure from uneven consumer spending and a subdued housing market.
Expectations have been revised roughly 17% lower for Home Depot's same-store sales for the third quarter compared to early September, LSEG data showed, while estimates for Lowe's have come down about 19% during the same period.
Key demand indicators - such as category sales figures from the U.S. Census Bureau and home sales - pointed to a sequential softening in the home improvement industry in the quarter, analysts said.
"Most likely, a recovery won't be in sight until the second half of 2024," UBS analyst Michael Lasser said.
"In the meantime, the market will be looking for indications of the level of sustainable margins and any signs of increased discounting as demand weakens," he added.
Earnings reports from other home improvement chains have solidified the concerns.
Tractor Supply (TSCO.O) and Floor & Decor (FND.N) cut their annual sales forecasts in recent weeks, with the latter blaming near-record-low home sales and weaker big-ticket discretionary demand.
Small-scale renovations and repair work - which had helped counter some of the impact from a pause in large home improvement projects in the past few quarters - are also facing a squeeze now.
Such projects are becoming even smaller - 24% of "Pro-customers" such as contractors and professional builders surveyed by Wells Fargo saw project sizes decrease in August from July, setting up for a steeper drop in big-ticket purchases at the retailers.
U.S. existing home sales dropped to a 13-year low in September , weighed by rising mortgage rates and tight supply.
"The consumer continues to soften with the recent step down likely (due in part to) student loans, holiday shopping shifting back to Nov/Dec, some shock effect from geopolitics, and a consumer that is ... continuing to shop closer to need," J.P. Morgan analyst Christopher Horvers said.
** Home Depot is expected to post a 3.3% drop in quarterly same-store sales when it reports on Tuesday; net earnings are expected to fall 13.9%
** Analysts expect Lowe's, which reports on Nov. 21, to show a 4.9% fall in third-quarter same-store sales and a 13.6% drop in comparable profit
WALL STREET SENTIMENT
** Shares of Home Depot and Lowe's have declined 7.7% and 2.3%, respectively, year-to-date, compared with the benchmark S&P 500 index's (.SPX) 15% rise in the same period
** Both home improvement retailers have an average "buy" rating among more than 35 brokerages covering the companies
** Home Depot's median PT has come down to $332 from $350 a month earlier, while Lowe's median PT has slid to $225 from $250. At least five brokerages cut PTs on both stocks in the past two weeks

Follow our news, recent searches, singtel-owned optus says massive australia outage was after software upgrade, advertisement.

This audio is AI-generated.
SYDNEY: Australian telecoms provider Optus said on Monday (Nov 13) that a massive outage which effectively cut off 40 per cent of the country's population and triggered a political firestorm was caused by "changes to routing information" after a "routine software upgrade".
More than 10 million Australians were hit by the 12-hour network blackout at the Singapore Telecommunications-owned telco on Nov 8, triggering fury and frustration among customers and raising wider concerns about the telecommunications infrastructure.
Optus said in a statement that an initial investigation found the company's network was affected by "changes to routing information from an international peering network" early that morning, "following a routine software upgrade".
"These routing information changes propagated through multiple layers in our network and exceeded preset safety levels on key routers which could not handle these," the company said.
"This resulted in those routers disconnecting from the Optus IP Core network to protect themselves."

The project to reconnect the routers was so large that "in some cases (it) required Optus to reconnect or reboot routers physically, requiring the dispatch of people across a number of sites in Australia", it added.
The vast scale of the reconnection project meant the investigation into the cause also "took longer than we would have liked".
The company added that it had "made changes to the network to address this issue so that it cannot occur again".
