Everyone complain his Internet connection is slow. Those who are using Tmnet dial-up say so… those who are using Streamyx also complain Tmnut is cheating on them because they do not notice any speed improvement, or more precisely constant disconnection especially when they are using Bittorent to download movies! Let’s test our Internet speed today and see if your’s is slower than mine! We use Speedtest.net.
For the uninformed, Speedtest.net is a free broadband speed test with servers located all over the world so that you can get more accurate testings. Get your test results and compare with others from the same area, or even from other parts of the world.
Now, Speedtest.net shows us the actual download and upload speed, not what Tmnet claims what you will get! For my case, I am on a 512kbps package with a monthly subscription fee of RM66. My test results average to: 200KB/S download, 102KB/S upload. Is yours slower or faster than mine?
Do you think it will help by much if I were to upgrade to the Streamyx 1.0Mbps package? Or do you think Maxis broadband is a better option? — I heard not much good recommendations from Maxis broadband users, although I really like it’s portability/mobile connectivity feature… you get 3G or at least GPRS connection on the move with its wireless capability.
