2011 Singapore’s Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network? Singapore

27 April 2011, Wednesday

Are you ready for the Next Generation Nationwide Broadband Network?

Well, most of the technical and speed freaks are ready for the Next Generation Broadband Network (NGBN).

However, it is not that straight forward and more like the Next Generation Broadband Nightmare. We have to first allow OpenNet to lay in the fibre optics cable into the flat for the Terminal Point (TP)  then another team, Nucleus Connect (NC), to install the Optical Network Terminal (ONT) if you want to use the new fibre optics internet plans provided by M1, Starhub or Singtel.

From Hardwarezone forum members and my own experience, many of us faced the problem that the Terminal Point fibre optics signal is not working when tested by Nucleus Connect and this needs another appointment to be made for Nucleus Connect to come down again to fix the Optical Network Terminal after OpenNet has fixed the problems.

In my case, the Nucleus Connect Bangladeshi worker told me that there was no signal from the TP and said that he will come back later after OpenNet has fixed the problem. I waited from 1100 to 1700 hours for the NC Bangladeshi worker to come. In the end, I called M1 and was told that they will arrange for NC to come again to my house to install the ONT. I received a call from NC at 1900 hours and was told that there was a slot for the next day to fix the ONT in the morning.

Basically, you need a minimum of two times to allow strangers into your home and to move your stuff for them to install the new fibre optics point.
