Hi @yewenjuan, may I know if you've tried restarting your router and ONT? Does that help? Also, are you on wifi or a cabled connection? - Diane

Hi  @ yewenjuan

 

There are 2 options you can try to resolve this issue.

 

1.  Do a Factory Reset on the Router. You may have to power off the ONT while doing it.

For DLink while power on, use a pin to push+hold into the reset hole, either bottom or behind the router, for 10+ seconds &or until the power indicator turn amber, then switch off.

Wait for a while then power on the router.

 

2.  Contact HOTline 1633 directly to Broadband tech support line, not CS.

Inform the staff on your problem on connection no good.

The tech support staff will able to check on their end on your connection if it is good or not.

They will required you to power off both ONT and Router.

Then they will do a Refresh your IP.

This may take several minutes and do follow their instruction.

 

Should the Tech support line is busy, do contact later as they may be assisting another customer online.

 

Do use this link to test your connection speed; >> Starhub Local Speedtest

For 1Gbps plan, the speed test result above 600+Mbps is acceptable.

For Ookla and other speedtest apps, the link will exit Starhub and so it may not be accurate as there are external interference, depend.

 

 

i am not starhub staff &or related to.

Hi:

I am about the same with you, from three weeks before, only 50mbps to 90mbps. 

i sent more than 10 emails, screen shot speed test results to them many times.

i call in 1633 more than 10 times already. now the problem still not solved.

 

My phone call bill expensive than my 1000mbps contract now.sigh....

 

they keep telling me to do direct modern to computer test. but the results still very bad, first few times do test, around 100mbps to 280mbps.

 

now some time less than 100mbps, sometime more than 300mbps, but never above 600mbps. tech support team said, above 600mbps should be normal, because computer backgroud need to surf somehting, so waste mbps, 1000mbps contract can't have full 1000mbps. but i can't even get above 600mbps. 

 

if i don't call in again and again, i can only get the speed around 50mbps to 90mbps. 

advice you to call and ask them help.

 

hope your internet and my internet is worth this money once they come down to measure and repair.

 

good luck to all.

I have the very same contract as you and i am getting 94-95Mbps on speed test.

The tech support cant even do anything and asked me to send through email so now i have seen that they asked you to call. 

I hope they can shoot the ball before the 10sec violation is up rather than keep passing, it would be fine if we are also paying 10% off the bill.speedtest.png
