DiGi: Speed Test Results

This is the speed I am getting when I tether with DiGi’s 3G Unlimited mobile broadband in my office. The speed is at par with Maxis (Average likely speed, though sometimes Maxis can go up to 2Mb) and a gazillion times better than Celcom which doesn’t have 3G coverage in my building. For RM48 a month, I am totally a convert and agree with DiGi’s tagline – Broadband Done Right! Keep up the great work DiGi.

DiGi: Back To Square One


Today, I switched back to DiGi again. I was pissed with Maxis because they do not have a warning system to alert it’s customers on the data usage. Long story short, I was slapped with a RM250 bill for one week’s usage. Now that DiGi has rolled out it’s Unlimited 3G mobile broadband here in the Klang Valley for RM48 a month – it’s bye bye Maxis. Sure, I’ll never be able to get 2Mbps connection at my office, but its not speed I need. It’s unlimited data at an acceptable average speed of 700kbps. There, I am back right at where I started. Thank goodness for Mobile Network Portability.

Sony Selling iPhone Ringtones

Guess the mass appeal of the iPhone isn’t something the top management at Sony Creatives Software division could afford not to reckon with.

DiGi Turbo 3G Network


DiGi has done it. Launching the first Turbo 3G Network in Malaysia. Strangely, coverage area only available in Penang and Kota Kinabalu. With speed up to 14.4 Mbps – priced at RM48 for Unlimited usage capped at 3GB per month. It’s a pretty darn good deal eventhough speed will be throttled to 128Kbps once you’ve reached your monthly 3GB quota.

Sony Vaio X


I knew that Sony Vaio X is thin. But I didn’t expect it to be this thin. Just got back from LowYat Plaza and played with the newly arrived Sony Vaio X which has the thickness of a pencil when closed. It was a real tech wonder. At 1.6 pounds and half an inch thin – this baby is seriously light.
