When you get your unifi setup, installers normally give you a default password(dir-615 default password) which is stated behind your router. I was strongly adviced to change this passwords by friends and when i was doing this, realised that i didnt have my internet login password. I should have received a slip that had this password given to me apparently which i didnt get. Continue reading »
I havent been blogging as much as i like, because its impossible to get to the dashboard of this blog.. Yes its that bad!
So why the bad connection?
Please be informed that currently all users who using ISP Streamyx is having slow connection due to detected a cable fault on the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 4 (SMW4) submarine cable network between Alexandria in Egypt and Palermo in Italy linking Malaysia to Europe and the United States (US). The consortium will be carrying out repair works on site on Saturday, 24 April 2010 and it is expected to be completed on Sunday, 2nd May 2010.
During the restoration process, there will be some interruption to the traffic to Europe and the US carried through that cable. TM ISP is taking active steps to minimize disruptions; we have added additional links on other routes and coordinated with other international carriers in order to provide additional bandwidth for our customers.
The announcement was made on twitter but the website still says its capped. How? Did this print screen today.
I intend to upgrade but before i do, hope its clear-ER
KUALA LUMPUR, March 26 (Bernama) — Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) on Friday clarified that the monthly data volume cap for its consumer UniFi packages will not be implemented immediately.
This applies to all Unifi packages offered to consumers — the VIP5, VIP10 and VIP20, it said in a statement.
The biggest problem that users see is now a no problem. But not implemented immediately, what does that mean? I hope the folks at TM will clarify that statement. What is it in for us consumers who have been with streamyx for years? (other than the obvious speed improvements) ?
There should be some carrot for us users who have been on the network all these years?
Time will tell
So our broadband has been a rubbish for many years now but being Malaysians we try to go with whats available to us but when you see whats happening around us, i need to scream.
Ok, what am i whinning about.. Have a look at the streamyx pricing.
So the fastest speed offered is 4Mbps and its RM268 to get that kind of speed. Expensive? I definately think so, considering that the governemnt is pushing for broadband penetration, it looks like you need to pay a premium to enjoy such speeds. BUT THATS REALITY ISNT IT?
Now from across the Causeway :
SINGAPORE – Mobile broadband speeds are set to double to 42Mbps by the second half of the year. And this might not burn a hole in your wallet.
Now how much does it cost? Yes the currency is stronger and all that jazz but when you compare things like this, its gotta be dollar to dollar isnt it? Singaporeans dont earn less then you(dollar to dollar).
SingTel currently offers a 21Mbps mobile broadband service that is priced at $69.30 with a two-year contract. There is no indication of how much 42Mbps is going to cost but even if its double(very unlikely) its still cheaper than what we pay for blady 2Mbps!
Some simple maths so it makes sense to me, i pay RM118 (RM88 + phone line rental) and i get 1Mbps. In a Singaporean context it would be (RM3 per Mbps [RM3.30 x 21 = RM63] )
So in a nutshell we pay 36 times more!!
