Maxis Broadband – Simply Terrible!

Maxis Wireless Broadband is possible the worst product Maxis has ever rolled out. For a company which prides itself as Malaysia’s largest and widest coverage mobile company, how it can still sign up subscribers to its pathetic wireless broadband service is beyond me. Picture below is my connection speed - 0.92 kbps!

 

Maxis Broadband Connection Speed

 

The only locations where I could get up to 90% connection was at Sunway Medical Centre and 1Utama New Wing Shopping Centre. Even at KLCC 4th floor food court, my connection speed was less than 50% – and this was only a stone throw away from Maxis HQ!

 

And judging from comments on Facebook on Maxis Broadband, I guess I am not the only disgruntled customer. Many have come disappointed before me and many will come after me. I hope they read this post before they decide to opt for Maxis Wireless broadband.

 

Streamyx here I come.

I'm Hallucinating...



I can already taste and smell the nasi lemak and ikan bilis sambal...


The Lost Chapter of Genesis

Adam was hanging around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely. 

So, God asked him, "What's wrong with you?" 

Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to. 

God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman

He said, "This pretty lady will gather food for you, she will cook for you, and when you discover clothing, she will wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make and she will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will praise you! She will bear your children. and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will NEVER have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it." 

Adam asked God, "What will a woman like this cost?" 

God replied, "An arm and a leg." 

Then Adam asked, "What can I get for a rib?" 

The rest, of course, is history......................

The narrow alleys leading to the section of the market that sells souvenirs.

The secret to getting a good deal is to bargain on the price. Seeing foreigners, the locals tend to raise the price of their goods 3 or more times. So always haggle down the price. Offer them 1/3 or 1/2. And then walk away if they don't want to sell. They will usually call you back. And if they don't, that means its already a good price.
