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.

Sorting through all these can be overwhelming if you’re trying to look for the best Internet home fibre broadband package. That's why we’re here to help with an in-depth guide to choosing the Best Home Fibre Broadband Plan in Singapore for 2024

M1 — starts from S$30.45

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 is 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.

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, Singtel Home, and a few other sign-up rewards.

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 good speed) for their broadband connection. Also useful for larger houses with more rooms or multi-storey houses.

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 1Gbps option (S$61.50/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$29.99

Plan/Speed
Cost per month (24 months contract)
1Gbps
2.5 Gbps

ViewQwest clearly defines 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 additional costs to purchase a router, either from ViewQwest or from online stores that 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$21.80

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.

👍 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 unsure 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: Wi-Fi connectivity is affected by more than just the speed of your connection. The configuration of your home and 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, some users 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.
