Since it is a new service ... there are still a few glitches to be ironed out .... and I was fortunate that my area was within the coverage area. There is a promotion currently till September 30th ... where they offer a free modem worth RM 999 and free waiver of the roaming charges when they extend the network to the major cities in west Malaysia. I have signed up for the 1.2 mb/s package for a year contract at RM99 / month.
So far the speedtest had been encouraging but as with all new ISPs .... I expect the speed to drop when more people sign up for the service.
The modem is a black box which needs to placed near the window. Initially I was having problems finding a good spot to place the modem and there were times when the connection gets disconnected when I close the window ... duh ..... I called up the customer service and they said that they are in the process of upgrading.
There is a T&C where customers are limited to 20gb per month ... wonder what they will do when the limit is exceeded. Anyway I have 15 days to try out Wimax and if I dont like it I can always get a refund. My intentions was to break free from streamyx and the phone line.
The speed test ..... results look promising :)
