Posted this in Lowyat forum not long ago to vent my frustrations on the local Wired Broadband...
About TM Streamyx vs P1
Wireless has its own weaknesses... yet sometimes many people in Malaysia rather switched to it due to our TM Screamyx dunno-what-they-are-doing at times... such as long waiting time just to install internet, sudden downtimes, the dont-care-attitude when u log a case... things lidat that spoils the fixed line broadband industry...
It is monopolized by TM and the government till today is doing very little about it... read the latest news about fiber optics layout for Malaysia?
it is given to TM as well...
something this important also TM will get, why? becoz it owns all of the fixed wired broadband industry... notice how small Maxis owns the wired broadband industry, as below:
"Service availability is currently confined to selected residential areas such as Bandar Utama 11 & 12, Desa Sri Hartamas, Sierramas, Bistari Condo Kuala Lumpur, Pusat Bandar Puchong, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Bandar Puchong Utama, Taman Industri Pusat Bandar Puchong, Taman Puchong Permai, Menara KLH Condo, Istara Condo Petaling Jaya, Villa Scotts, Damai Sari, Endah Regal, Bandar Country Homes Rawang, Taman Rawang Perdana, Bandar Baru Nilai, Masalam Sect 9 Shah Alam, Bandar Sunway, Sri Wangsaria Bangsar, Prima Sixteen Petaling Jaya, Taman Tasik Semenyih Kajang, Taman Eng Ann Klang, Taman Bukit Kelisa Seremban, Taman Sutera Johor Bahru, Bandar Baru Permas Jaya Johor Bahru and Taman Scientex Johor Bahru and Taman Pakatan Jaya, Ipoh. Sign up today and experience the power of broadband in your home."
Maxis is wayy better than TMnet stoopid streamyx...(so much stable with a professional support) yet why is it not overtaking TM till this day? Simple, government owns part of TM, making it a semi-government corporation... (so u can confidently say Maxis does not get a permission to lay their own telephone wires, expanding their wired broadband services, alot of hanky panky stuffs that TM does to block other competitions?)
And notice this line:
"He said the Government will roll out an advanced national communications infrastructure soon by wiring up 1.2 million households and business premises with fibre-optics to boost Internet connection speeds to between 10Mbps (megabits per second) and 1Gbps (gigabit per second). Current speeds are up to 4Mbps."
Who is "the Government"?? TM of course, lol lmao
It even explains why P1 could do so well till it has gotten the attention of Wimax forum in the world... as below:
the government is still sleeping about our current wired broadband situation? helloooo wake up please...
**the things i speak are with credibility... as the course I majored at college was Business Information Systems (BSc. Hons), did lots of case studies about IT & businesses, analysis of IT systems etc... as well as having exposure to the real IT industry as i've had close to 3 years experience in it. Have even worked at a local telco for 7 months before as cust service...**
