Ah so many posts to write, Tmnut is playing silly buggers the last few days.
Most of the time I can’t access Flickr, can’t access any sites hosted on blogspot, sometimes can’t connect to any Google services, can’t connect to MSN..
And when it’s all working it’s so terribly slow, even surfing is a pain.
This is what we get when we pay for broadband eh?
I wish they would stop selling and marketing and start investing back in the infrastructure, let’s upgrade the international links PLEASE.
Let’s get regular trans-atlantic pings of less than 300ms please!
I’ve noticed recently they are super efficient when it comes to cutting your line too, if you don’t pay by the day stated on the bill they really cut you off within a few hours and you have to pay the RM10 reconnection charge.
They are really rather organised when it comes to collecting the money for their half-arsed service.
If only they paid so much attention to the actual service they are supposed to be providing, customer service orientation is not something that is prevalent in Malaysia anyway.
I guess things might change if Streamyx is not the monopoly, if they eventually unbundle the local loop things might change…
Might I say, with great trepidation.
At least it with allow for some smaller guys to come in and run service based companies rather than just sell sell sell, typical of any monopoly.
It was the same in UK when British Telecom held the ADSL power-card, until they unbundled the local loop, the service and pricing was much the same as Streamyx.
Legislation forced them to surrender the monopoly though and now UK is a country with extremely affordable, very high quality ADSL. Most of my friends are using 8mb ADSL, which really gives 8MB internationally…economically they pay around RM120 per month for the service.
And here we are paying RM88 for a 1MB line which only gives 1MB into the Tmnet network, perhaps on a good day getting 300-500kbps internationally.
When is the last time I downloaded something on my Streamyx at over 100k/s? I don’t even remember.
1MB should give downloads of around 115k/s ideally.
I doub’t I’ll get the TMnet CEO coming to my house, but still…
