How much hatred do u have over your broadband provider? For me, I think an atomic bomb targeted to the Menara TM should do the case.
After coming back from Singapore, I already miss my sister's internet connection. It's fast, cheap, mobile and quite stable if you compare to the one we have here.
I mean for 20SGD per mth you get like almost 2Mbps most of the time.
Freaking hell it's like half the price of my TM Net Streamyx and 4 times faster.
It streams Youtube so fast that it loads the whole season even before u can finish watching the 1st part of your pilot. (Maybe not that fast la, but at least u don't need to wait)
So tell me how can I'm not furious over TM Net now?
Then there's a shine of light from heaven. Ever heard of Wimax?
WiMAX, the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access. In my term, it's actually a higher boosted Wifi that you can get everywhere because of the coverage. You can read more if you are a techy person.
So here's the deal, imagine what can you do if Wimax can overcome all your internet connection problems.
One: Like the normal TM Net broadband. It's fixed, it's slow, it's sometimes unstable and you can't even travel with it. And don't forget how TM Net deals with troubleshooting.
Two: Then, you have your Wifi, which is fast and quite stable but with a catch. You need a hotspot. So, if you ain't staying beside a Starbucks and you can forget about it.
Even if you are staying near one, beware they might close down anytime soon. US closed down 600 of it's Starbucks. Haha
Three: What about the wireless broadband then? The USB modem with a SIM card in it. I've personally used my sister's old connection and it is nothing as they claim.
It's unstable (as in very) and speed never ever reaches 50% of what the promised. Waliao eh! And I've compared those provided by Maxis and Celcom. It's much more expensive than my Streamyx and half the speed.
That will be the last thing I ever need...
So, Wimax is finally coming to Malaysia. (Thank god) And it can do all the things you current internet provider can't.
This means Wimax will be both fast and mobile... Hmm nice!
And Wimax is going to be expanding into other gadgets as well. So far Nokia has announced that N810 will be Wimax compatible. (The thing I needed now, a replacement for my lost Hp)
And laptops will soon be Wimax compatible just like how the current laptops with WLAN provided.
This could really change everything. Imagine one technology for all the gadgets. Hmm how nice?
So, stay tuned for more info on Wimax. They are reaching us faster than you think. *fingers crossed*
