Last week on Friday, we subscribed to P1 Wimax. I, for one was fed up with the slow internet connection of Streamyx so when I was getting rave reviews about how speedy Wimax was, I convinced A to give it a try. Since potentially both of us will use the connection, we decided to apply under A’s company name and take up the unlimited access plan.

Registration was a breeze. No mess, no fuss. Quick and easy and within 15minutes and poorer by RM100, we were the proud owners of the P1 latest modem that comes with the voice plugin. We had a week to evaluate the service (used to be two weeks).

We were told the service would be activated in 2hours time. So at around 8pm, A hooked up my laptop to the service and did a bandwidth test. It came up to only about 800kbs… not very impressive. The next day, we brought it to our new apartment and give it a try there. The speed there was considerably faster and I was happy that at least I had internet access while waiting for floors to dry :)

However, once we were back at home, once again the speed was very bad. In fact, so bad that there was no connection at all for a few hours. I had to revert back to good old Streamyx. After a few times of intermittently losing connection, I gave up, packed the modem and told A that we definitely not subscribing. At RM139 monthly, I expect my connection to fly but that was not the case, at least not in Ampang anyway.

We returned the modem yesterday at their headquarters. We are hoping at the new place, we can register for the 2mb plan available from Streamyx (have to check if it’s available in the first place). Worst case scenario, we will re-evaluate Wimax again. But for now.. it’s back to Streamyx. (not sure whether to smile or frown here.. lol)

Cheerio…
