Last night, I was utterly utterly mad with the horrendous and horrible speed of the net. (trying to mimic Simon Cowell’s way of speaking :P ). If you are a PayPerPost’s postie, you will understand how crucial it is to rush in, grab the best paying opportunity and take the opportunity. It is a matter of losing USD20 sometimes. USD20 is A LOT OF MONEY to me. And if you multiply that with the number of blogs, you will feel my pain. Can see but cannot touch, kinda deal.
So, I chanced upon Ashotiwoth.com‘s blog post about him being short changed. He provided the link to check out streamyx internet broadband speed and I did a test.
I took the TMNet Speedometer test and got about 588 kbs (or whatever they use to measure the speed) download speed. Still, I do not believe this figure because the speed is way much slower than dial-ups. Even today, I had been getting cut off several times eventhough the reading goes up to 600+. And I am paying RM88 per month for a 1Mbs.
So, here goes my rant – TM Net sucks. Your service sucks. Your voice recording sucks. If I am unlucky, your service staff sucks. Your internet speed sucks. And I wish our country has more service providers. You have caused me to lose so many paid posts these few weeks and I hate you! *end of rants*
*sigh* Will we ever get back to ‘normal’ again? It has been weeks since the Taiwan Quake.
