It has been a long time since I last posted. Apart from busy with work, I have been busy enjoying my new broadband. I have been a customer of Unifi since they first launch, upgraded my then 4mbps Streamyx connection to 20mbps unifi. That was an awesome upgrade. I remember writing this then – Unifi Speed Test.
It super awesome. Having to upgrade my speed 5 times faster to 20mbps. Despite a lot of complaints coming from various people, I was extremely happy as I managed to do things that usually I was not been able to do.
Fast track 6 years later…
Unifi launched 50mbps lines, while Maxis launched their 30mbps lines. I called the telco up for the past few months, and was told that due to the use of copper as the last mile connectivity, they are unable to upgrade my speed.Such a pity, I already paid RM249 a month for Unifi, the same amount of money – I would be able to get 50mbps from Unifi. Sad… time to move to landed property. And then I was walking along my lift lobby downstairs, I saw a banner stating that my apartment has 50mbps! I was so happy. Made few posts on facebook to ask feedback.
Straight away I went to the www.time.com.my and ordered by service. The installation was set to be 21st March 2016. As you can see from the riser – how the cables are pulled from the hubs.
Its just an empty casing, with hubs every few floors. As for mine, the nearest hub is 12th floor. Ok – after installation. The speed was awesome! Checkout the ping time 🙂
Amazing. 20mbps to 50mbps is considered a good jump! Then two days after, right after workout at Firestation:
Client of mine whatsapp me the image above!. I am like wtf… And then immediately I called time – and they said that… I’ve been automatically upgraded!
That night I came back and tested my speed, and here what I get…
Unbelievable…. damn freaking fast!
With this speed – it’s just mind boggling on the things that I can do. I can’t imagine me being able to finish using all the bandwidth that was given to me. This is just super awesome.
The question that I have now would be – would their customer support be as good as TM? Let’s wait and see…
But for now – i better go quickly terminate my Unifi!
