ISDN, Sat connections and ADSL

tmpoint

I just moved from Kelana Jaya to the Bangsar area and switched my Streamyx broadband to the place over here. I’ve had a lot of questions about why I did that. I don’t know why but a lot of people think Streamyx is passé now with all the new nifty players on the market.

However, for me (and others) it is still the most reliable broadband provider. I’m not just saying that coz this is an advertorial – this was one I accepted coz it really reflects my feelings. I started out with TM dialup (1515 anyone?) coz I’m old (skool) and as soon as Streamyx was available, I just jumped on it.

I was even considering stuff like satellite connections coz it hasn’t rolled out in Sibu back then. I was a real geek back in the days (probably still am, just in a different arena) and thought  it would be worth it to get a sat connection (great downlink, but uplink is slow coz it runs on dialup). ISDN was also an option but PROHIBITIVELY expensive back in the days.

It was something of a godsend when Streamyx came into the scene. It’s why I’m still using it…and will continue to use it. I’m just loyal like that ya. ;)

  1. Connie: Heh! I was contemplating satellite back in the days (1994/5) but the cost was PROHIBITIVE. It’s insane how much they’re charging. :)

  2. ShaolinTiger: Yeah, they have it in Australia too, the worst thing about it is the uplink – it uses dialup. Good for downloading stuff though. :)

  3. I live StreamyX … nothing beats good old wired broadband. OTA services have too much latency and can’t keep my bloody SSH connection connected for days.

  4. You’re in bangsar now? gonna miss seeing you in the giant hypermarket haha
    streamyx makes me want to punch its face at times but it’s still my good old reliable connection. i started with 1515 too.. back then ppl were harping on 1511 (whatever happened to jaring?)

  5. Aish: Eh??? Youy see me in Giant LDP? When was that? Say hello if you see me next time. :)
    Yeah, we’re old skool eh, started with dial up. Heh!

  6. Thanks for another wonderful article. Where else could anyone get that kind of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such information. My kindest regards, Flo.
