Of Internet Connections and 3G Speeds

Yes, this is just another rant but surprisingly when I typed in “Streamyx Sucks” in Google, I was rather surprised by the number of returns I got. Looks like I am not the only one complaining about their slow Streamyx speeds because I just can’t access certain websites without constantly refreshing the site. praying that it will somehow work. Check out this site on what may be the cause of the slow speeds, but I am very very inclined to sign up with Packet One at the moment.

On another note, I recently subscribed to Maxis’ 3G service and I am still rather dissapointed with it’s slow download speeds. It is so slow that I constantly have to find a spot where there is a decent signal and most of the time I get bad connection speeds such as being downgraded to the EDGE line or the GPRS line. This is rather disturbing to me.

    Mark, I TOTALLY AGREE with you! I was previously with Streamyx and I get disconnected so often that I finally gave up and now with Maxis. Although slightly better but still no where close to satisfactory performance… Do let me know how you feel about Packet One should you try it..

  • if your place got wimax go sign up..

    Penang now only places near Komtar got nia, and their 1MB line is really 1MB constant connection speed. damn fast and wireless sumore! heheh..

    go sign up, take the modem and go back 1 hour later u plug and start ur IE can laio. very fast one. hehhe..

  • Screamyx sucks big time. I can't wait to go back to Singapore and enjoy my Internet connection.

    I think I am better off using dialup in KL.

  • Maxis 3G sucks! And worse of all, you have to pay processing fee if you terminate it within the year. Absolute bollocks!
