Come on, man....use you're brain.

I am an American who used to live in Singapore for a few years. They are generally doing a great job with broadband policy and implementation there, helped in a big way by the fact that, yes, it is a very small city-state and density is very high. Similar to most large American cities, in my opinion.

What nobody in here has figured out is that those rates posted are in SINGAPOREAN Dollars (SGD), not AMERICAN Dollars (USD).

Duh.

So...allow me to roughly translate for an apples to apples comparison:

(all speeds not guaranteed - meaning UP TO)

1Mb/256kbs = $29.96 SGD = $20.78 USD
8Mb/256kbs = $59.92 SGD = $41.57 USD
12Mb/384kbs = $81.32 SGD = $56.40 USD
100Mbs/2Mbs = $124.12 SGD = $86.10 USD

So NOW make your informed comparisons.

Uh, see my post currently 2 down from yours? See the time on your post compared to mine? Clearly some us had "figured" it out already.

Yes, I still see it has Japan has a better deal going. I think even we have better deals in some cases.
