I am not sure if you experience the same problem as mine... But here is the details of my ordeals with the internet connection and ISPs.

August 2008 - Returned home from Liverpool and straight away signed up for Streamyx. I was very much impressed with Streamyx advertisement on the telly (the one yang ada this nobody-geek who became famous because he is a hardcore, terrer gamer tu). So, I was so chuffed to sign up.

October 2008 - The internet connection went from OK to terrible. Keep contacting their helpline and was told that my modem was faulty. Okay, so the whole modem exchange took around 2 weeks.

November 2008 - Started working, didn't use the internet much. In addition, I gave up on the fricking slow connection.

January 2009 to June 2009 - I was still paying for the bill, but I was not getting what I should. I actually made friend with the Telekom technician who kept coming to my house to fix the internet. He said, my area is problematic. Yeah, what ever.

August 2009 - My contract with Streamyx already reached 1 year, so wee hee! Time to leave them and sign for the next best thing. Celcom Broadband. I bought the more expensive USB modem, because it has an extra year warranty. The modem, fees etc yada yada yada costed RM 300. And bill, RM 99/month. But OMG it was worse than Streamyx!!! Arrgggghhhh!

October 2009 - Decided that I have to sign up with an alternative ISP. So I offered t0 my sister the Celcom USB modem and signed up with W1Max. It's a 2 years contract, free cuboid modem and 1 week trial. RM 99/month and free the first month.

Guess what, during the 1 week trial, the internet was perfect. Laju giler memang boleh blogging, facebooking, etc etc selalu. But after that one week, ada mood swing pulak. Kejap ada, kejap tak ada. Although the time tak ada lebih banyak dari yang ada.

So, please please excuse me with my lack of updates in the blog. I am really trying!

Huhuhuhuhuhu... Sedey giller.
