I am deciding to do the above but after some calculation, I think combo is also not so worth la, because I use auto debit on my phone account and got RM2 discount and also my phone account got Mesra discount that will deduct a tiny fraction of the call charges but if I combo it, I might no longer enjoy them, of course I need to pay the rental RM25 but the combo will jack up the streamyx account price also

For me it more CON than combo.
I am worse off and it locks me in for a year.
My commitment is higher.
There was a thread on this somewhere here with lots of details.
You try and search for it?

Please be reminded that the speed for Streamyx Combo is only 384kbps. Even Streamyx 1mbps sucks.............. I wonder what kind of service you can expect from this offer. Probably the speed of dial-up!!!!!

Don't bother about 384kbps or 1mbps.

I'm getting same speed at either bandwidth, max 50-60kb/sec.

So just subscribe the cheapest combo package, ie. RM60 one enough.

I have changed to the cheapest combo package since I hardly make calls from my house phone. As scorgia have mentioned "Even after I downgraded I am still getting the same speed"

I was using the RM66 512kbps earlier, but when switch to rm60 combo when i move into my new house as need a landline as well.

yes-it is definately slower- much slower.

And i am also having problem connecting to my old wireless router.
Now only the free modem provided by them work - not my previous wireless router due to some configuration problem. The technician from TMNET certainly not care abt my problem.

Here is an other reason not to go for that CON-bo package
"Still Frustrated over TMís combo package
....every month I continue to be charged for line rental as well as the combo package."
