You can continue to use Motorola SB6100. However, the max speed that the modem can go is up to 30Mbps.

I would recommend waiting for the OpenNet Termination to be installed at your premises first. If you re-contract your service now, when you upgrade your service, you would have to pay for the Home Gateway.

You can wait as mentioned by the cs. I think The modem still can be used. But you won't get full performance from it. Other option is to recontract then when Opennet comes in you use your own router to do direct ONT. Don't get the residential gateway from StarHub. You are going to hate the gateway anyway.

Your existing modem still can be used.

My experience is terrible. Super Old maxonline/scv/cablevision user and converted to fibre. After 1 day of use, the maxinfinity failed to work and its 2 weeks and no solution from starhub. some crappy troubleshooting by their tech support...and trail has gone cold.

 

I should have gone with M1 or VQ or MR. Singapore companies are sadly terrible and exploitive.

Hi fibrefail

Let me help you on this. What is the LED status of your Home Gateway and ONT?
