Event Coverage – ViewQwest Partners Aftershock PC + Launched 10Gbps Broadband + IT Show Special

Every ISPs (Internet Service Provider) in Singapore seems to be overly anxious in up-ing the residential broadband services. After Singtel and Superinternet, ViewQwest today launched its premium 10Gbps consumer fibre broadband service at SGD 218 per month and it is now available to all households in Singapore.

Such speeds which were made excusive for business users in the past is now available for residential users. With that kind of speed, consumers can, theoretically download a 4K movie in a matter of minutes. However, that is provided you have sufficient computing power to do so.

To provide a comprehensive solution for consumers, ViewQwest is partnering homegrown PC-maker Aftershock PC to build specially customised PCs with all the necessary components that can take advantage of the uber-fast throughputs of the 10Gbps line.

ViewQwest’s 10Gbps line makes use of Metro Ethernet technology which offers symmetrical 10Gbps upstream and downstream speeds, unlike the rival GPon solutions which offers 10Gbps downlinks but only approximately 2Gbps up.

Consumers, especially early adopters who sign up for high-end 10Gbps lines expect nothing but the very best, yet in today’s marketplace they have to figure out for themselves how to customise a compatible computer and set up a home network which can enjoy the maximum speeds of the 10Gbps line.
