    Best Broadband Advice

    I'm moving into a nice new place in KL soon - but as a hardened nurd, I will need to have my web-interface quickly! What's the fastest way for me to get a 1Mb+ broadband line?

    What is your telecomunication provider? TM? ask your neighbour? If you are within DSL coverage you could get streamyx or jaring dsl... Other alternative is Jaring Wireless (1Mb too)

    If you Telco is Maxis... you need to check with Maxis.. they offer broadband in Puchong and surrounding areas wired and wireless.. If your telco is TimeDotCom you could get time GHSDL - Max speed 440 kbps up/down - that is the best they could offer atm.


    If you live in apt complex.. try asking your management .. whether other 3rd tier ISP like Ebuilding etc offer their services there..

    worst come to worst... if you are really out of luck get maxis3g or celcom3g - 386 dl and 64kps upload (how sad) - next year (hopefully) maxis will upgrade the 3g network to 1meg or 2 meg ..

    good luck in getting wired

    Yes, I think I'm in a DSL region:

    I'd not come across Jaring Wireless before - are they much good? I see it's 1M downstream - but the site doesn't seem to say what it is upstream!

    i had a bad one with JW -- seems like my house was in the "blind spot" i had to hold the unit outside the window... then i would get good speed.. when i pulled it back in.. no coverage.... when i took the unit to office it would not work cause my unit was registered to a single base station.. huh

    how can i surf with one of my hands outside the window? lol
    JW is not for gamers.. the latency is quite high... but 015 phone was cool though.... i still prefer wired over wireless anytime...

    Thanks for the tips - I also prefer wired. streamyx is probably the way I'll go - but I've heard they don't have great reliability or the best connectivity to the US & Europe. I'd ideally like two DSL providers and to merge the streams but at the moment I'm more concerned about getting something faster than a dial-up running fast! :-)
