With so many of us working from home, having a steady and fast Wifi signal can make or break your entire day.


Every spending situation is unique. SingSaver assembles the 'Best For' list, so you can decide what’s best for you.


Singapore boasts one of the world’s highest Internet penetration rates, and the Internet services market is hugely competitive.

The early Internet days were dominated by the three telcos (Singtel, StarHub and M1), but the market has seen a number of virtual operators who’ve managed to carve out a foothold in the market, offering similar services at comparable rates.

Virtual operators do not actually own their own fibre optic network infrastructure. Instead, they buy network access wholesale from the likes of Singtel, M1 and Starhub and offer bandwidth at a lower price to consumers.

While this benefits consumers (credible competition helps keep prices in check), it can also mean dealing with a deluge of plans with different prices and marketing messages. Sorting through all these can be overwhelming if you’re trying to look for the best Internet home fibre broadband package. 

We’re here to help with an in-depth guide to choosing the best Home Fibre Broadband Plan in Singapore for 2022. 

Let’s start with an overview of the home fibre broadband plans available in Singapore today. We’ve summarised the key features and information in the following table.

Home Fibre Broadband Plans in Singapore 2022

Provider Monthly cost* Speed Best for
M1 From S$29.90 to S$59.90 From 500Mbps to 2Gbps Additional mobile broadband connection at no charge
StarHub From S$29.90
to S$62.90
From 500Mbps to 2Gbps Fully connected entertainment ecosystem with StarHub’s cable TV and Disney+
Singtel From S$47.90 to S$172 From 1Gbps to 10Gbps Variety of options (and speed) for broadband connection
MyRepublic From S$27.99 to S$65.99 From 200Mbps to 2Gbps Good balance between price and connectivity options
ViewQwest From S$28.99 to S$40.99 From 1Gbps to 2Gbps Fibre broadband plans without the need for a router
WhizComms From S$26.90 to S$51.90 From 300Mbps to 1Gbps No-frills fibre broadband connectivity

*Listed prices based on 24-month contract and correct at time of writing.


M1 — starts from S$29.90

Plan/Speed Cost per month (24 months contract) Cost per month (12 months contract)
500Mbps S$29.90 S$39.90
1Gbps S$39.90 S$49.90
1Gbps (Gamer) S$52 -
2Gbps S$59.90 -

Before virtual operators came into the picture, M1 was the underdog amongst the big three telcos. Today, the competition is getting stiffer. Thus you’ll see quite a few freebies thrown into the mix when you sign up for a 24-months broadband subscription plan (1Gbps and above only) with M1.

Besides a free wireless router for new sign-ups, you also get a 4G mobile broadband free of charge for 24 months. This comes in useful if you need a second mobile connection for your tablet.

For those looking for new gadgets, you also have the option of adding a Xiaomi TV, an ASUS TUF Gaming Monitor, an Apple iPad, or a Samsung Galaxy Tab to your fibre broadband plan. Prices range from S$14 to S$30 per month for two years.

Best for: those who want an additional mobile broadband connection at no charge.


StarHub starts from S$29.90

Plan/Speed Cost per month (24 months contract) Cost per month (12 months contract)
500Mbps S$29.90 -
1Gbps S$45.90 S$49.90
2Gbps S$62.90 -

Similar to the other providers, StarHub has included a few freebies, and this includes free activation (for 2Gbps plan only) and installation (for 1Gbps & 2Gbps plans only).

Currently, new users who sign up for the 1Gbps plan (for 24 months contract only) will enjoy a free four months subscription.

For those interested in the 2Gbps plan, you will receive a free 43" Samsung AU7000 UHD 4K Smart TV worth S$799, as well as a free Smart WiFi Pro worth S$399.

On top of that, StarHub has a tie-up that throws in a free one-year Disney+ subscription with its 1Gbps and 2Gbps plan (for 24 months contract only).

A point to note is that a one-year Disney+ subscription costs S$119.98, which means you are still saving in the long run.

Do also note that there is an activation fee of S$56.71 for 500Mbps and 1Gbps Fibre Broadband plans.

Best for: those who want a fully connected entertainment ecosystem with StarHub’s cable TV and Disney+.

Singtel — starts from S$47.90

Plan/Speed Cost per month (24 months contract) Cost per month (12 months contract)
1Gbps Enhanced S$47.90 -
1Gbps Plus S$50.90 -
1Gbps Pro Gamer S$56.90 -
1+1Gbps Gamer Bundle S$72.90 -
2Gbps Mesh S$67.90 -
2Gbps Mesh Plus S$77.90 -
10Gbps S$172 -

While Singtel’s monthly subscriptions lean on the pricier end, it does provide customers with several fibre broadband options, not to mention the highest speed at 10Gbps. Unfortunately, the available plans are tied to a 24-month contract, so you are out of luck if you intend to switch out within a year.

However, the plans come with comprehensive options, and you can even choose to get a router and/or a WiFi mesh to connect your home (varies for different plans). What’s more, all Singtel plans come with a home line, 500mb mobile broadband, 12 free months of Amazon Prime and Singtel Home.

If you happen to be a new sign-up, you will also enjoy a Singtel GPON Optical Network Router.

Similar to M1, Singtel customers also have the option to purchase various lifestyle products such as Microsoft Surface Laptop Go, Nintendo Switch OLED, Secretlab gaming chair and more with their fibre broadband plans. The price will be charged to your bill over 24 months (interest-free payments).

Best for: those who want more options (and speed) for their broadband connection.

MyRepublic builds its plans around flexibility, giving you the choice to sign up for 24-month, 12-month or even no lock-in period. Of course, the cost savings you get from a 24-month plan is significantly higher compared to a no-contract option (S$59.99/month).

Similar to Singtel, you have the option to choose between a router or WiFi mesh, with the latter being better if you prefer to strengthen your wireless connection at home.

Those who game frequently will also be pleased to know that there are several gaming fibre broadband options to feed their gaming hobby. Slightly pricier than the regular plans, these options come bundled with a gaming router for lower ping and improved latency.

Best for: those who want a good balance between price and connectivity options. Also for those who game frequently.

ViewQwest — starts from S$28.99

Plan/Speed Cost per month (24 months contract) Cost per month (12 months contract)
1Gbps S$28.99 -
Gamer 1Gbps S$52.99 -
1Gbps with Linksys MX5502 Mesh S$41.99 (for the first 10 months, S$57.99/month thereafter) -
1Gbps with ZenWiFi AX Mesh S$42.99 (for the first 10 months, S$69.99/month thereafter -
2Gbps S$40.99 -
Gamer 2Gbps S$64.99 -
2Gbps with Linksys MX5502 Mesh S$53.99 (for the first 10 months, S$69.99/month thereafter) -
2Gbps with ZenWiFi AX Mesh S$54.99 (for the first 10 months, S$81.99/month thereafter) -

ViewQwest is very clear in defining their plans, as the listed prices are based on the plans’ speed.

While their basic plans might seem very affordable, it does not include the cost of a router. So you’ll have to factor in some additional costs to purchase a router, either from ViewQwest or from online stores that might offer it at a cheaper price.

Another thing to consider is the various advanced features provided by ViewQwest. For example, its Freedom DNS allows you to legally access streaming content that might not be available in Singapore due to geographical restrictions.

Best for: those who do not require a router

WhizComms — starts from S$26.90

Plan/Speed Cost per month (24 months contract) Cost per month (12 months contract)
300Mbps S$26.90 S$32
1Gbps S$34.90 S$40
1Gbps with TP-Link Archer AX23 router S$40.90 S$47
1Gbps with TP-Link Deco 5 mesh S$49.90 -
1Gbps with TP-Link Deco X20 mesh S$51.90 -

Want to stop paying for expensive fibre broadband bundles? With WhizComms, what you see is what you get. In fact, it offers the most affordable 1Gbps plan in the market thanks to its no-frills approach.

Instead of passing the cost of freebies and add-ons to the customers, you'll only be paying for the speed of your fibre broadband plan.

Available in both 12 and 24 months, WhizComms should be ideal for those who already have a router and are on a budget to stick to for home ultilities.

Best for: those who require no-frills fibre broadband connectivity

Other things to note before you sign up for a broadband plan

1Gbps is the middle ground

The most common packages offered are 1Gbps plans, indicating that the majority of Singapore home broadband consumers are satisfied with the speed offered by such connections. Hence, if you’re not sure which plan to get, starting with a 1Gbps plan is a good idea.

2Gbps packages are the next most common, but are aimed at gamers or those who need super-fast WiFi connection.

Not all 2Gbps plans are created equal

Not all 2 Gbps plans are the same. Some ISPs offer a dual bundle, where you have two 1 Gbps connections carrying the load in your home. Other plans may include a 1Gbps dedicated gaming connection + 1 Gbps connection for general use. Be sure to discuss your needs with your ISP before signing up.

Another thing to note is this: Wifi connectivity is affected by more than just the speed of your connection. The configuration of your home, as well as the distance between the router and your devices, also play a part in whether you experience Wifi  'dead zones' in your home.

To solve this problem, more powerful routers with longer range and higher output, or a set of routers that work together (aka Mesh Wifi) are often necessary. Some ISPs do offer these solutions, usually as part of their gamer bundle. If you’re facing this issue, it might be worthwhile to give the more expensive gamer bundles a go.

Contract vs no-contract

Although Internet connectivity has become an essential utility, there are some users who prefer not to be locked down by contracts. They pay higher prices for the freedom to cancel anytime with no hassle.

All things being equal, it’s almost always more beneficial to sign up for a 24-month plan, as doing so gives you more savings.

In summary, the trade-off is between cost and speed. The faster the speed, the more you should expect to pay.
