You might have heard that M1 have recently lifted their Port Blocking Policy and started offering Static IP addresses to their customers at $2/month for a period of 12 months. This allows customers to access their NAS, IP Camera and many other services hosted in their home network worldwide through WAN.
Many other ISP have already been providing Port 80 and many other ports opened for non-corporate customers to manage at their freewill. Examples include M1 (as mentioned above), SingTel, MyRepublic, SuperInternet and ViewQwest.
Would StarHub be kind enough to lift the Port Blocking Policy in the near future? Let us know, StarHub. Or else, we, your loyal customers, might have second thoughts to recontract our MaxOnline/MaxInfinity services and migrate to other ISP who are able to open up ports for use.
Please comment if you think that StarHub should review their Port Blocking Policy to allow us to have the freedom in managing our ports!

Well mate, all I can say now is, kindly refer to the link below for alternatives.

According to the review, either ViewQuest and MyRepublic will be my favourite ISP although I haven't try any of them before. Worth considering!
port 80 on fibre is not block. i have tested setting up a website with the free dynamic dns dlink offers and it works.
Please use www.canyouseeme.org to verify whether your Port 80 is blocked.
If you were to access Port 80 through LAN, it is probably the NAT
Reflection/Loopback which is redirecting your WAN IP to your LAN.
you're right. www.canyouseeme.org can't see port 80. my 3G phone can't access the web page.
when I change to a 8000+ unused port instead of 80 I can see the web page using 3G phone. anyway I just do it for testing, I don't have a need to host my own web server for the time being.
maybe you could try the unused port at the 4000 or 8000 range for your NAS etc.
if starhub were to continue this practice, I will be switching ISP when my contract ends.
