Which 3G mobile broadband should I choose in Malaysia?

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

Wireless Tether for Android rooted phone

My home broadband connection is down. Luckily, I have HTC HD2 with me. I can do Wi-Fi and USB tethering in Windows Mobile. But some of the Android ROMs cannot do both. So here is an Android application that can help those who like me ~ Wireless Tether for Root Users. It enables tethering via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. I did not try on Bluetooth mode but I am a happy user with Internet connection through Wi-Fi.

Set ‘WCDMA only’ with Android Network Application by Philipp Mangelow

I don’t have a strong 3G signal at my place. And it used to turn to 2G EDGE when 3G signal is weak. Data connection is broken then and slow with EDGE connection. Network application by Philipp Mangelow manages to help to set ‘WCDMA only’ on certain Android ROMs with EVO kernel where I cannot set ‘WCDMA only’ in connection settings.

Wired Tether for Android (rooted phone)

My home broadband connection, Streamyx is having issue again. It keeps disconnecting and connecting (DSL is not connected issue). So it is time for me to use my HTC HD2 as modem again. But I don’t want to use wireless connection this time, but going to try Wired Tether for Root Users. It is the same as Wireless Tether for Root Users but using USB cable instead of Wi-Fi connection. It is good for single user usage and can charge your phone at the same time.

WMLongLife ~ Auto 2G/3G band switch for Windows Mobile

WMLongLife is an application that installed in my HTC HD2 long time ago but not being used until now. My HTC HD2 battery runs out a little bit fast lately. Maybe due to frequent Internet surfing or battery quality degraded (after 4 months usage?) or poorer signal from my operator ~ Celcom. WMLongLife is an automatic 2G/3G band-switching solution. It will turn on 3G when application like Opera Mobile needs to access Internet. And turn back to 2G mode when no needed. Note – 2G uses much less battery and usually generates less radiation than 3G.
