Comparison - Revisited

Previously I've made a comparison between two different broadband service. Today, I shall review the same service (by DiGi) using a different modem at a same location. Hopefully this post will get the attention of DiGi :)

Firstly, let me just say that I am not against or disappointed with DiGi service. I think their service is excellent but I am hoping that the would bring their Turbo 3G service to Putra Heights faster (Lat 3° 0'37.30"N; Long 101°34'44.91"E).

Okay, here goes.....

I tried the broadband service with my USB modem on my notebook and the results are:-

Next, I use the iPhone as a modem and this is what I got:-

I wonder why the difference? Is the reception from the USB modem superior? Even when in office, the 3G signal from the iPhone will fluctuate quite frequently to Edge speed BUT it is more stable with the USB modem.

Anyone with any answers or thoughts, do feel free to comment.

Apple iPhone 3Gs

Folks, I am ashamed to say that once again I've succumbed to my weakness. This time is the iPhone 3Gs. In a way you can blame DiGi's marketing but my weak "flesh" is mainly to be blamed. I got the i138 package from DiGi. That means apart from the price of the phone, I am paying RM138 + 5% monthly for my phone bill. This price includes 450 minutes of calls and other freebies. It also comes with an unlimited data plan capped to 3GB for turbo 3G speed. The phone cost comes to RM1090 after subsidy. Worth it?
