Internet is part of our life now. Most of us cannot live without get connected. We surf Internet for information, playing games at Facebook, watching video at YouTube… Lot of interesting stuffs can be done with Internet. And 3G mobile broadband is becoming a norm now. There are 2 type of 3G mobile broadband ~ USB modem and mobile phone. Both of them have different pricing. I am going to cover 3G mobile broadband for mobile phone only now. Why? Most of the smart phones like HTC HD2 can be acted as 3G modem. There is no need to subscribe another package for home usage if you are using it alone. There are 3 main 3G mobile broadband providers in Malaysia ~ Celcom, Maxis and DiGi. Let’s see how they perform…

Factors to consider when choosing 3G mobile broadband

  • Coverage
  • Connection speed
  • Usage quota
  • Price

Slow… Slow… Slow… My Internet connection is very slow since early morning today. Especially connection to US. Guess what? TM announced that there is a fault on the Asia-America Gateway (AAG) submarine cable network linking Malaysia to the United States and North Asia. Therefore, all TMNet Broadband customers who use Streamyx and UniFi are affected by this.

Yeah… Celcom Broadband mBasic (Mobile Internet) connection speed upgraded to 700kbps from 384kbps. No wonder my Samsung Galaxy S II is loading webpage faster than previously. Okay, without further ado, I benchmark it with SpeedTest. And the result…

I love to use JDownloader to download custom HTC HD2 ROMs no matter Android Froyo, Gingerbread, Windows Phone 7 or Windows Mobile 6.5. Most of the ROMs are stored at file sharing website like RapidShare, MegaUpload, DepositFiles, HotFile, zShare, Uploading and more. With JDownloader, it will help us to download multiple ROMs with just few clicks. However, there is no D-Link DSL-2640B reconnection script for JDownloader. I need it to reset Internet connection and get a new IP. I don’t want to login to modem administration page in order to do so.

My 5 years old Aztech DSL600EW ADSL2+ 4-Port Ethernet USB Wireless-G Router stopped working after I upgraded my Streamyx connection speed from 1 Mbps to 4 Mbps. It serves me well for the past few years. Initially, I thought something might be wrong from TM Streamyx part because Aztech DSL600EW DSL light started to blink and always get disconnected after changed to 4 Mbps port. Contacted TM support and TM appointed installer for this issue. And finally found that my Aztech DSL600EW cannot support 4 Mbps connection. Why? The new Innacomm W3400V WiFi Modem managed to get connected to Internet.
