"Speed of service is on best effort basis."
i share same sentiment as LimKengYaik to hate that clause ... with their ass oledi protected why advertise as 4Mbps only they can claim as high speed as they want and continue giving us 56kbps also will be no fault of theirs ...

can we pay them on best effort as well? :rolleyes:

Any idea what's it's uploading speed then? RM198 should be fine since the 2Mbps already priced at over RM150??? (Can't remember).

you might get 2.3mbps for RM198... :rolleyes:
I'd wait for others to jump into this wagon before I even want to think about it... that's my best effort that i can think of... :D

what else is new... pay 77 for 512kbps, get 56k... pay 88 for 1Mbps but get 128k... now they berani advertise 5Mbps... I believe what you'd get (at least for the next 12months!) would probably be 1 Mbps of 'bull****'

Now you know why I call TmNet as TmWait... :mad:

I have a 10Mbps ADSL service from SingTel for which I pay S$80.00 monthly.

Of course, I never get anywhere 10Mbps speeds, but that's par for the course!

This whole new scheme AIN'T getting a warm reception from many Malaysians in local forums. No point swearing further as it falls on DEAF EARS. All have been said already in those local forums. For 2 years, practically everyone's out for TMNet's hide and blood screaming out curses and swearing everyone is being CHEATED with issues of bandwidth throttling, dial-up speeds at broadband, disconnections and other MAJOR issues because of OVERSUBSCRIPTION.

D.S. Lim Keng Yaik has lashed out before on the appaling and dismal performance, saying,.."Can't do it..close shop lah".. but that's not a solution. TMNet is an entitity like other utilities BOASTING of profits year after year but NOT seem to be passing on benefits to its subscribers. I'm speculating funds are used to "hold the fort" eventhough its gradually crumbling, and when it does fall apart..the gahmen has to step in to overrule and rectify the situation. I hope it doesn't have to come to this.

Factually by consensus, Problems are outweighing the benefits of subscribing. Its NOT the matter of subscription cost anymore. The essential matter at hand IS, Malaysian subcribers are CORNERED into subscribing services that seemed attractive at 1st sight but the service fails to be better quality in due time. Nearest competition doesn't do any justice either to the consumer in terms of benefits or savings. This is a sad reality of Malaysian business, choice and service. The government should be blamed entirely for allowing this sort of practice and culture.

If give one's way..TMNet can be sued for failure in its advertisements and responsibility to their clients. "Best effort" is such a LOOSE condition to anyone. Try some legitimate downloads from some sites in EU or UK, or Youtube streaming..its slow..damn slow many times of the day. So much for their advertising of multimedia streaming, conferencing or what nots.. its disgusting nowadays.

Sadly no-one has the time nor gall to sue them as justice in this country is anything but costly and slow. I hope no-one falls for their con job or 6.30pm schemes..TILL there's absolute proof of delivery.

Lastly, lets not differenciate the needs of younger or senior folks who have vastly different needs of using broadband. We can easily assume young folks are jamming up the bandwidth with huge downloads, but we must examine the current and actual capability TMNet on the whole. It is lagging, on par with neighbors and others in order to demand high subscription rates?..I think its grossly unfair and expensive to local per capita income.

I guess many get confused between bandwidth and latency :-)

Bandwidth...is like the size of the road...and latency is the speed that one could travel on it.... So bigger road does not necessary mean one could travel faster.

Latency for local sites would be quite speedy as I've compared from 1mb to some homes that have 2mb. Latency to international sites is anyone's guess.
As long as they're quietly throttling the bandwidth to certain kinds of downloads.. You're CHEATED!.. period!

However THEY can counter reply saying other ISP's in other countries do the same thing.... BULL!. I don't care what happens in Timbuktu..Timbuktu ain't my country nor locality.

I think I've already said it all and just another scheme that'll likely have more complaints in due time than satisfied customers UNTIL there's absolute proof from consensus that its honestly delivered and money's worth. They can't solve the problems with 512kb to 2mb subscribers, they think existing problems can be solved with 4mbit plan?. Me thinks NOT!..lets not be fooled or trapped!.

They're willing to dump money, get agents to recruit, organize campaign, fiesta, giving out gifts to attract new subscribers.

But they wouldn't spend on upgrading/expanding infrastructure.

Imagine a giant clam trap its prey? Never forget there's a clause to bond many months of continuous subscription, and can be billed in total for that period if the contract is broken, regardless if the service was good or not. Trap or not? Malaysia is NOT a place where deals are not neccessarily to the advantage of subscribers and the gahmen seldom takes any interest TILL something BLOWS up!... like a scam Jeff Ooi is now exposing!. You buy a house that's not even seen the light of day, pay instalments through the nose and one fine day the developer close shop, run away.. this is Bolehland!..semua boleh!.
