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.

Maxis Wireless Broadband Review

Internet connection is a must for most of us nowadays. I cannot survive without Internet as I need to blog to make a living. There are 3 main broadband providers in Malaysia which are Celcome, Maxis and DiGi. I am so lucky to have a chance to test Maxis Wireless Broadband that I grab from my brother in law. He just subscribed to Maxis Wireless Broadband to cover his job need as a sales manager and got a free USB modem during the promotion.

How to speed up Streamyx connection?

Oh no… Slow Streamyx connection again? Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) wishes to announce that its consortium members have detected a cable fault on the Southeast Asia-Middle East-Western Europe 4 (SMW4) submarine cable network between Alexandria in Egypt and Palermo in Italy linking Malaysia to Europe and the United States (link). In this case, connection within Malaysia servers is still okay but no no when you try load oversea websites.

How to speed up Streamyx connection? That’s the question that I ask myself. All my blogs are hosted in US. And the performance is very bad now. Err…

Well, the first thing that I will do. Turn on the Streamyx proxy server on my Firefox browser (no proxy by default). This will speed up a lot because it will load the website from the proxy server. And only will load the website from its original server (let’s say located in US) if proxy server don’t have the cache.

Yes, I just turn on the Streamyx proxy server mode. Streamyx connection speed does improve some. Try it for yourself.

How to disable HTC HD2 3G data connection?

I bought HTC HD2 due to its large screen and browsing Internet is the primary usage. Therefore, I subscribe to unlimited 3G data plan. However, not every HTC HD2 owners do the same. They might need to connect to Internet once in a while. And lot of applications like weather, tweeter, email, stock in HTC HD2 need connect to Internet for update. They might connect without your notice and being charged with expensive 3G data rate. I used up RM15 Hotlink prepaid in 2 minutes when my WiFi connection stop working and HTC HD2 connected using 3G by itself.

How to disable HTC HD2 3G data connection? It is as simple as ABC. Just install BsB Tweaks v1.6. Launch it and go to Menu -> Data Connection -> Disabled. It will not automatically connect to Internet even WiFi connection is not found.
