Fibre TV and termination point

Recommended Posts

Need to seek fellow MCFers view on this.

 

I read that Starhub will be terminating the cable TV and migrate to fibre TV in a few years time and in order for fibreTV to work, the TV set and supporting hardwares had to be connected to the termination point (OpenNet) via cables.

 

If my termination point is located at the main door area, does it mean I have to engage technician to relocate the termination point to my living room with drilling thru walls and ugly trunking ?

 

Is it possible for FibreTV to work via WIFI ?

Yes and yes.

 

My wife asked the tech who came to run extension and drill hole into the study where the router is for better signal to the bedrooms.

 

By right there’s a cost to it but Aunty 出招 acted cute and blur so...

I was told the cost is S$160.

 

How do you get it free?

Who does it for you?

 

BTW I am perfectly happy with the cable connection but as you say this will stop soon, Starhub can't or won't say when, so I want to get the indoor fibre point sorted.

The OpenNet termination point will near the main door where it will connect to the modem and router (wifi) in the living room, you can then lay LAN cable trunking to your room.

 

If you require another TV box (singtel tv or starhub tv) in the room, it cannot be transmit via wifi, you need the cable.

SH is using back the ONT... So basically you can leave the ONT at your TP original location ...but only need to pull one cable from the ONT to your TV, not a whole bunch.

I am not sure what the current situation is.

My guess is that SH is putting all its digital tv signal on fibre /ethernet.

 

That means, you'll need a router/wifi and SH will probably provide a set top box (with decryption) to convert ethernet signal from the router to HDMI, so you can connect to TV

 

That means the end of coax cables.

Refer to the diagram I post. If you want to replace the IP switch with wifi. How are you going to get the wifi client to connect to STB? Most wifi client need a pc to set the config unless u use a stand alone wifi client.

 

There are 2 ways - One is to use powerline plug. Another one is to use MoCA device and run thr existing coax tv point.

 

I am using MoCA as the starhub Samsung STB is MoCA 1.1 certified. I just use back the existing coax cable via current tv point.

How’s the powerline plug performs against a more powerful router?

 

I ask this is because I’m procrastinating to get this for each room as the wifi at home generally good till my girl watched YT on her OPPO hp, it seems to suck up most of the bandwidth...

Shouldn’t lah

Both usage very Low one

Unless is wifi coverage issues

You download the wifisweetspot app, see get how many mbps. (This is not actual mbps. This just check for how many mbps from router. Not internet speed. But if Low mean coverage issue)
