StarHub to cease cable services from July 2019
What options are there for older folks?
- switch to fibre (they don’t use internet)
- terminate cable (return TV boxes)
- switch to digital TV (may not be eligible for free digital startup kit now, since they have pay TV)
- switch to Red camp (also needs fibre)
- switch to android boxes (also needs Internet)
We are reaching out to our existing cable customers progressively through various channels including letter, phone call and SMS to provide more information and assistance for a smooth transition to fibre networks.
Rest assured that you would not incur additional cost for moving to fibre networks and subscribing to fibre services.
Simply send us your details at www.starhub.com/personal/forms/hubbing/switch-to-fibre.html?icid=int-31B-StarHubCM-201808-cm-support and our team will be in touch to assist you.

Fibre services. We will be sending a letter to customers who are still holding onto our Cable services to assist them on the upgrade.

I now having two set top box ( living room & master bedroom), 1 router in living room installed just beside electrical box and having very poor WiFi signal to master bed room, StarHub had no choice and install another point with another router inside my master bedroom. I not sure how your going to allow me to have IPTV and I need my digital phone in living room.
Few months back, I going to recontract with an upgrade to 1G Fibre plus IPTV. But ended installation aborted..
Yours is probably using wireless bridge to connect both routers.
I would guess IPTV would work in the same setup, connecting to the respective routers.
I not expert though... leave that to SH.
The other options on not rewire or trunking are powerline and mesh network.
Google Wifi mesh are acceptable on wireless and may depend on layout of the premise.
Powerline adapters rely on electrical wiring to provide wired connections but would be suitable for IPTV.
SInce IPTV required wired connected between the ONT Port-2 and IPTV STB (Set Top box).
There was an earlier promotion on HomeHub with options on either 2 sets Google Wifi or Linksys EA8100.

Not 2 ONT(s).
ISP ONT do have at least 4 ports for fibre connection beside 2 telephone ports, if any.
Starhub ONT Port-1 is solely for Internet access and Port-2 is for Fibre TV IPTV, if subscribe to.
As for Ports 3 & 4 are null & void and not in use.
For those who need 2 IPTV STB then there is a switch before the 2 STB.
Refer to > Multiple Set-Top boxes set-up
Each house with 1 FTP are allow to have 2 separate ISP(s) to provide services as Internet and Pay-TV.
Hence there are users who do subscribed to 2 different ISP(s) whereby uses both ports of FTP for Fibre.
