P1 Wimax vs TM Net Streamyx test

Much has been said about the revolutionary Wimax from Packet One Network ( P1) . Recently I've has been having problems accessing to Streamyx . Speed was slow and at times I couldnt even connect to the net. This prompted me to give the P1 Wimax a try.

Was preety excited when I got my own Wimax modem yesterday and immediately tested out the connection but to my dismay it didnt live up to my expectation. Wimax 1.2 Mb package , connection was slow and unstable.

Test was done via an independant test server at and at P1 own speedometer test in its own homepage. Using a KL based server as a test bed, Streamyx is the clear winner with speed up to 2 1/2 times faster than Wimax. The Wimax was tested in my room, as its where I surf the most. However to be fair, another test would be done in my living room facing the direction recommended by P1.

My humble verdict : Whether you like it or not , Streamyx remains the clear winner in internet surfing speed in the comfort of my room, due to its landline. To be fair, Wimax is a wireless broadband service and I am trying it out in my own room, and not as per their recommendation at an open area facing the recommended position, in this case South . It may be excellent surfing in a open area , but as I said I mostly spend my time surfing in my room. I can be carrying the P1 modem around my house and surf right ?????

PS : This test is purely done on my own accord and based my own opinion and doesnt reflect any bias towards any ISP.

I want to say that P1 Wimax Is A Shit Who Does Not Care About It's Customers!
I am very pissed off with P1.

In August I signed up for P1 Wimax. I test runned it and within the week I found that it is not suitable for my purpose. I signed the cancellation document and told them to write the cheque to my wife or company because I do not have a bank account to deposit the refund cheque.

Despite the cancellation procedure, I still get billed. I wrote back after a few billings to tell them off them up regarding their inefficiency.

When no refund was forthcoming after the 45days was up and long after 90 days, I called customer service. Apparently there is no record of my cancellation. They probably lost my documents. They asked that I go to their office to settle this matter! (So I am being penalized for their crappy work)

I told them I want their phone number to talk to the accounts department. The call centre refused to give me the number! They want me to go there! Not satisfied, I called my Vendor in Subang Jaya and apparently I was right in that they misplaced the document.

Just few days ago, I got my cheque. Even then, they did not follow instructions despite me given WRITTEN instructions to that effect. It had my name on it and I already told them to put to my company's or wife's name.

Of course that got me pretty mad. I would have been neutral but because they keep fucking up and delayed my refund, I got REALLY MAD.

To me this is one FUCKED UP COMPANY who DO NOT CARE about CUSTOMER'S RELATIONS. The blocked us from reaching administration and customer service so that the directors can sit on their cushy chairs and let the customers be. I am totally pissed off!
