1: I don't know where this information comes from about Singapore internet , but its so far from the truth its unbelievable .
Internet is abominably slow in Singapore , its just like the road and transport system , get too many people to use it and don't invest in infrastructure to support the load.
Also wireless is NOT fast , wired is , look at the overheads in wireless communications , try going back to basics and really understand the technology
