    Streamyx VS Maxis Broadband

    -------------------------------
    Whats On My Mind:

    Mum apparently to be a little crazy today, she offered to get me a laptop out of the blue! I refuse to accept that offer due to my "son ego", because last time I'm suppose to get 1 before entering SAE Institute, and since I came Taylor's I've been told to save that money instead because I have other plans. I'm currently eying on Isaac's Peugeot 405, so yeah thats why, if he is selling it, I'll be darn happy! =D
    --------------------------------


    I could stand no longer!

    Enough is enough!

    Today, I went to TMpoint at Taipan USJ, my internet has been down for weeks!

    Upon arrival, this particular sign cough my eye, I instantly draw out my phone and took a picture of it, I could not be bothered about other people looking at me.

    Its a sin not to take this picture, and you'll know why...

    Anyone of you can just step into TMpoint at Taipan,
    turn right once you enter, and you'll see that...


    It just SO STREAMYX!!! I was so happy for them because they finally discover something new of themselves!!

    So I took my number and sat down.


    The odd things was, those who are paying bills, their number are called more frequently compare to those who need technical assistant.

    And at 5:30pm SHARP, the TMpoint people will close shop.

    I've never seen them working that efficient, except closing shop on time...

    5:30pm had passed, I was given the "waiting treatment" before it could be my turn.

    "Number 3042, counter 7"

    I went and approach the receptionist as soon as I heard the call!


    And I'm thoroughly amused by this...

    The TMpoint people has to used THE CUSTOMER LINE to contact the technical department or some shit like that, don't they have direct access???!! -.-"

    Thus I have to wait longer...

    By the way, I've filed 2 phone report and 2 front desk report(including this 1).

    There was a technician who came and fix the line at my place few days before, but after he has left, I connect to the net for 7 minutes and it just disconnect.

    The technical department say that its my phone lining problem, and I have to call some fella to fix it!

    Thats what the fella did to my lining...

    I frigging shot her back saying that its your @#$% departments technician that was pulling and plugging my lining, and its spoiled after that, so YOU have to send someone to fix it

    Or I'll frigging splash pork blood in front of your TM head quarters door step, and I'll see how your gona close shop on time now!(No offence to any of my Muslim friends, this statement was to express my dissatisfaction of TM service)

    Of cause I wasn't talking rudely to her, but I've got my message straight.

    After all the talking and waiting, they agreed to send their technician within 24 hours(in other words - one day) to correct the mistake they made.

    They told me they are going to call me back and confirm what time they gona come, I told them off "tunggu lu telefon? I tunggu sampai leher panjang pun tak kan terima call lu..."

    I did that because last time they say they gona call back, but did not.. This is not the 1st time they did that to me...


    The fella reassured me that they WILL call me back, I'll see about that soon...

    Mum got a freaking good idea, "lets just chance to another service provider".


    Maxis was just around the corner, we walked over there.

    Mum was told by 1 of her friend that Maxis also got provide broadband service, thats why she thought of it.

    Just that instance..


    We just registered and now I'm using Maxis broadband instead of TMnut.


    1. Streamyx 1.0 Mbps ; Maxis broadband 3.6 Mbps.
    2. Streamyx got to wait few days for installation ; Maxis broadband buy, plug and get connected.
    3. Streamyx lousy service ; Maxis broadband hardly need any service.
    4. Streamyx need long wiring ; Maxis boradband less then 30 cm for desktop, less then 15 cm for laptop.
    5. Streamyx can only use for 1 computer(if its not router/wireless) ; Maxis broadband anything that has windows or an apple, its portable too!
    6. Streamyx no trial period ; Maxis broadband 1 week free trial(RM 100 deposited) before contract begins, and they refund your money if you decided not to continue using.
    7. Streamyx pricing a little cheap, but not worth it if your not using the house phone, the charges comes up to almost same amount RM77 addition RM 30+ ; Maxis broadband net price RM 138 per month with no hidden charges or tax.
    Why pay less and torture you soul? A little extra $$ spent keeps the doctors away.

    Conclusion??


    Streamyx - 0 ; Maxis broadband - 7

    Strike out!!
