Malaysians being the cheapo nation, (as based to the success of Air Asia) are very money conscious.
So, when we are talking bout air tickets, mobile phone service provider, and now internet service provider, the 1st and most important factor will be price.
It can be damn good, but if it is expensive then it is out of the story. But if it's cheap and it cater to a minimal standard (like budget airlines) then it will most probably do the thing.
So, let's compare the price of the new Wimax vs TM Net Streamyx.
TM NET STREAMYX
Monthly Subscription: RM99+ RM25 (phone rental)= RM124 per mth for 1 Mbps with modem
1st Payment: RM88 (installation) + RM75 (activation) + RM88 (subscription) = RM251
Monthly Subscription: RM89 per mth for 1 Mbps with modem
1st Payment: RM100 (registration) + RM50 (activation) + RM10 (stamp duty) = RM251
So which one will you choose? Don't forget the wireless and portability factor too... :)
