Izzi Speed Test vs Speedtest.net

To measure your internet connection speed, which website did you use?

Personally, my top 2 choice are Izzi Speed Test and Speedtest.net

Izzi Speed Test vs Speedtest.net

Izzi Speed Test vs Speedtest.net

Izzi Speed Test vs Speedtest.net

Izzi Speed Test vs Speedtest.net

Who’s the winner?

I chose Izzi because it’s freaking fast and accurate. Additionally, if you want to measure or calculate the speed within Malaysia, Izzi provide the best service. What ever it is, some people claims that Izzinet should change to Lousynet because they really sucks. Read the comparison before subscribing.

Speedtest.net is good if you want to test overseas connection.

amax.my – Amax Wimax vs P1 Wimax

amax.my - Amax Wimax Wireless Broadband

amax.my - Amax Wimax Wireless Broadband

Today is my day 1 of Amax Wimax trial period. I registered for Multi User Package for RM138 per month.
Activation fee of RM100 waived and no RM80 installation fee imposed. No RM50 activation fee charged.
I just paid RM138, that’s it.

As I’m staying in Kelana Jaya, Amax Wimax is one of the ‘best’ good choice.

I don’t want any messy wires and cables all around me, so I opt for Amax Wimax.
Since they give 7 days trial, I’m gonna use it to the max.

Particular, after the installation finished, I felt something weird. I felt the dizziness.
Is that because of the microwave, or the headache just come across me?

You hardly find a review about Amax Wimax on the Internet. Except some from Lowyat and the price tag from Soyacincau, including the post about revamped website.

You may refer to Life as Malaysian if you can’t decide whether you should go for P1 Wimax or Amax Wimax. Aris Samad said that Amax Wimax wins over Streamyx, while Ian discovered that you can’t view YouTube properly. On the other side, guen chai declared a war while athirah still can’t decide.

Based on my personal opinon, observation and review:

Day 1:

  • Response time is fast. Once you register on the Amax website, they will call you the next day for the installation.
  • They will call you to set the appointment and surprisingly arrive on time.
  • They will perform signal checking and place the Wimax modem at the correct place.
  • Configuration with testing account started and they showed me they can get 1.5Mbps.
  • Payment has to be made on-the spot. Ouch! I didn’t prepare any money. They should state it somewhere or upon calling me. I thought it will be impose in the next bill.
  • If you want a Wi-Fi router, please add RM150. Wimax modem for multi user do not support Wi-Fi. Only LAN connection allowed.
  • Speed test results varies. But I never reach beyond 1Mbps. Ranging from 200kbps to 900kbps. Showed the unstability.
  • My friend who are using Maxis Broadband at the same place, same location managed to get 1.2Mbps to 1.6Mbps

Day 2

  • Early in the morning, I tried to hook-up to the Amax Wimax but failed.
  • Feeling miserable, I do not know what to do. If Streamyx, I can call their hotline number.
  • Now I realize, having an Internet connection must also consider of having a great support. Even in real life, it never exist.
  • So what I did?
  • I made a call to their toll-free number, saying that I want to return.
  • They said must come over to Taman Tun Dr Ismail, TTDI.
  • Immediately, I packed up everything and went over to No 8, Jalan Tun Mohd Fuad, TTDI.  Same row of Celcom, and opposite of Maxis.
  • Returning is easy, yes I mean really easy. They asked to fill-up the form, put the reason why you want to terminate.
  • They explained that the reimbursement will be deposited into your Maybank account.
  • If within 14 days, Amax did not call me, please let them know.
  • Things to complement, their customer service is nice. Even with your intention of termination of service, they still service you as usual.
  • I’m impressed!

Good bye, Amax. Thanks for giving me a chance to try your Wimax service.

I happily went-off and paid a visit to Celcom TTDI Branch. Just want to ask (and immediately subscribe their Celcom broadband), but they failed me.

But that’s just another story.

Maxis 3G vs Celcom 3G – Both Slow?

Celcom 3G

Are you one of the Maxis 3G or Celcom 3G user? Or you’re just the one who can’t decide which one to subscribe? Let me guess, you really need to connect to the Internet on the move.

Before you make your final decision, just read through review of good/bad and slow/fast experience. Don’t fall under the trap with their marketing geniuses advertisement.

Below is some rants and review about Celcom 3G from the blogosphere:

  1. While using Celcom 3G, some people can get 1.32Mbps+. Well that’s impressive, at least in this country.
  2. Henstudio managed to get 2.05Mbps but complaints the upload speed in only 150kbps, slower than TM Net Streamyx. He also stressed out that modem type is also important.
  3. Bloganything said that it is better to use Streamyx. Go for Celcom Broadband is you’re a student and really need to mobilize.
  4. Don’t use Celcom 3G Broadband and Maxis 3G Broadband. They were horrible, said Yapthomas who choose P1 Wiggy Wimax.
  5. Mytechnews was experimenting with the Celcom 3G Broadband Prepaid which the speed can go up to 384kbps only.
  6. Shashinki advised not to be bond with the contract. Buy the modem by yourself for RM699.
  7. Ah Tim told his experience, a survived blogger in Kuala Terengganu.

What about Maxis 3G?

Look at the charges below:

Maxis 3G Data Packages

Check out the good and bad review about Maxis 3G below:

  1. Wernshern of LYN blog is hoping that P1 Wiggy beats Maxis 3G.
  2. On the contrary, Ozzylicious said that Maxis 3G is BLAZINGLY fast!
  3. Beware of the Maxis 3G Pay-per-use. Their customer service sucks, as being told by Lankapo.
  4. Colin Charles said Maxis 3G won’t work at PLUS North-South Expressway, unlike Celcom 3G.
  5. Fairiz said the winner is Maxis 3G. Simply said that because its ability to download continuosly using download manager, without interruption, unlike Celcom 3G.
  6. MyOrganicIncome said that Maxis 3G never failed him. Maxis Boleh!
  7. Maxis 3G is totally crap!. Ayusli got another perception about Maxis 3G and subsequently leading to the termination. Follow hisPart1Part2 and Part3.

So, who’s the winner, if both Maxis 3G and Celcom 3G are slow?

It is true, they can’t cater the best service at all levels. But at least give us the price we pay.

Note: MyDigitalLife posted a blog post about a Maxis 3G experience.
