Weeks ago, I signed up for Maxis Broadband. Initially thought of signing the normal blardy bulky modem that they offering, but some cool staff there offered me this and instantly I signed up with them. The HSDPA 3.5G USB Modem. So here's how the box looks like.
So the package is pretty OK, pay up activation fees of RM 100 and monthly charges is RM 138. And being able to get connected almost anywhere, wtf is RM 138? Anyway, I am pretty sure they will review their price pretty soon because Celcom got the same package at lower rate. So what you got in the box? A very cute oval shape modem, USB cable & setup CD (only for MAC user). For Windows user, pretty easy to set up, just plug in and auto install the program.
My place here, UMTS (3G) signal is detected. No complain as maximum transfer rate I ever experienced over at my place is around 1MB/sec. Pretty reasonable for me, as I don't do torrent or MP3 downloading. Most of the time blog hopping and updating only, normal mails checking.
And being Maxis Broadband user is not that bad after all, they chose to advertise on my blog. And I am not being paid to review this, Maxis is fortunate enough to have an user like me :P , and from their database eh, I had been using Maxis for quite some years, and being a good paymaster, they gave me a pretty decent limit for my mobile :)
