Why Am I Not Using Streamyx?

I've been asked this question for duno how many thousands of times. You know when it really gets annoying? Not answering the same thing again to different people, but to the SAME PERSON! Seriously, there's quite a few of them, after asking me once which I've exlpained in details why am I not using Streamyx and not long later, ask me the same question again!

I'm really tired of answering it. I'm not a record player ok? Don't expect me to answer you again and again when you won't even remember it. So I'm writing it here now, and the next person who ask me this question again will have my post's link stuffed to them ^^

I am not using Streamyx because the condo I'm staying is not using Telekom Malaysia's line. I guess it's some contract thingy that at each residential area there must be a few parts given to other Telco. So the condo I'm staying is using TIME dotCom (Formerly known as Time Telekom)'s line.

So...Streamyx is provided by Telekom Malaysia, while I'm having TIME dotCom's line. You don't expect me to purposely go tarik Telekom Malaysia's line to my place just because of wanting to use Streamyx right?

Time dotCom do have their own broadband services, but it's freaking expensive. 1.5Mbps package for RM128/month ok? Yes I know, if I get one, I can have smooth sailing internet surfing experience with constant speed and all, but it's almost double the price of the broadband I'm using now.

Currently I'm using Umobile, and I guess unknown to many of you, yes Umobile have broadband services and I've been using it for almost 2 years now. It's only RM68 per month (RM78 for me, because I took some package that comes with the modem last time), and I can assure you it's much much better than the speculated "Potong" broadband. (I'm sure you know which am I talking about ^^)

Glad I finally wrote this post, I will no longer have to repeatedly explain the whole thing again ^^

sad case... time is not a common service so they offer quite high fees. Anyway, if ur P1 service is god at ur place maybe u should change? or else just stick to time. Time has good idd service though :)

Actually their price is high because it's really good. I have friends who are using it, and they claim that it's much faster than Streamyx.

I am still a loyal fans of Streamyx!
I still think Streamyx is more stable compare to those broadband, never use those Maxis, Digi and etc before. =)
Unless I am not staying in my house anymore!
