Pc Fair

I wrote two entries today – 5 Scenarios Where Procrastination Is A Must and this personal rant.

Yesterday was a day of a mission. A personal mission. My mission should I choose to accept it (which I did) was to go to PC Fair and try out Wimax there. A fairly simple mission but not an easy one I must say.

Just look at the crowd there. People are rushing to check out what’s this wimax is all about. Some may go there just to get the extra big paper bag (Very handy in a PC Fair). I just stick around and see the demonstration done by the presenter there. And I have to admit, I am impressed.

To start with, users will be given a downlink speed of up to 10Mbps. I’m not sure how fast that would be. But I like what I saw at the demonstration.

  • Connection is so fast that watching youtube is like watching the movie right from your computer.
  • Broadband TV is just like watching normal TV, which means that we can actually say aurevoir to ASTRO :)

The best thing is we can actually test the Wimax at the luxury of our home. They are currently giving out free Wimax modem to everyone signing up. You will be able to test the speed, latency etc for one whole month, which in my opinion is a pretty good deal. Why would we want to subscribe to a new ISP if we don’t exactly know the quality?

So if you are living or working at the area below, why not join the free trial yourself.

  • Kuala Lumpur City Center
  • Subang Jaya
  • USJ 1 and USJ 2
  • Sentul
  • Setapak
  • Gombak

And since you’re there. you might as well enter the contest they’re having. Just pick up the contest form and answer the easy questions there. You might win yourself some cool printers :)

More information at P1W1MAX.com or just visit the booth at PC Fair

There you have it – my findings of Wimax at the PC Fair as promised. Why am I excited on this? 25% of Malaysia will be covered with Wimax by the end of this year. Of course I’m excited :)

    Make Money Blogging – I’m sure by now you are at the PC Fair. So how was it? Crowded? :)

    Bought anything?

    aRa – watching youtube at that speed is really a dream come true. I can rewatch all the classic tv series like moroe attack and wonder years :)

    Kuantan? hm not sure, but according to the map they’ve given out in the paper, by year end they will only cover the west side of peninsular Malaysia. No worry, by next year they should be able to cater for big cities like Kuantan :)

    Tentang bayaran, takde pulak dibagitau. harapnya affordable lah… please let it be affordable

    Banji : There was really crowded with people, but it’s worth that i saw Wimax =) It’s really very fast speed, and the Wimax device is cool, i did take a photo for that and upload to my blog too =)

    But we still don’t know the price yet haha, i’m waiting for that.

    Did you take their paper bag ? It’s unique but i did not take any, because too many people apply already. =.=”

    Make Money Blogging – Yerp, the price remain a mystery. About the paper bag, of course I took it, very handy putting in all the flyers :) Actually that paper bag is quite a good promotion. the first thing people see is that bag, and people will start asking, where can I get the bag hehe brilliant

    Pocket – wimax ni kelebihannya sebab portability, so kalau ada laptop lebih fully utilize lah, duk kat pantai pun boleh surf high speed internet. Jadi kemaruk nak beli laptop tu mcm kena pada tempatnya huhu

    bila banji nak berwimax? bila dia release of course :)
