Singtel's Broadband on Mobile vs Telekom's Streamyx

Am down with a bout of fever and chill since last night. 

Wrapped myself up like a tortilla wrap and slept at an uncharacteristic early hour at 12 am. 

Woke up feeling better today but still a little bit feverish. Feeling rather drowsy also, so i give hospital rounds a slip today. 

That's the privilege of being a medical student, as compared to working as a houseman. My friends who are working now have to drag their asses to work even if they are having diarrhoea from gastroenteritis. 

Anyway i shared my smartphone's internet connection to my mac, using bluetooth PAN, and am pretty impressed with the connection speed. (Here's an excellent blogpost on how to do it)

Not bad huh Singtel Broadband on Mobile

I am using the 1Mbps plan (free upgrade from 512kbps plan which i pay around 20 dollar monthly.) There are options to subscribe up to 3.6 Mbps. 

Those using Streamyx in Malaysia is going to be green with envy. Haha. 

5xmom tiu-ing Streanyx on the poor broadband performance in Malaysia today. Haha. 

There's even a website set up just to bitch about Streamyx.

Telekom's Streamyx, Malaysia's supposed leading internet provider. Haha. 

And loads of interesting artwork on the subject, taken from here. Enjoy!

Streamyx Sucks
