Today I wrote two entries – My 3 Secrets To Fall Asleep In 10 Minutes Top and this personal rant.

For readers who were actually following my quest for Wimax, it is with great pleasure for me to announce that Alor Setar in Kedah is now covered by wimax. This is good news for me because I am a Kedahan. The bad news is that I am currently not working in Kedah. Well, at least, whenever I go back home to Kedah, I know for certain that it is now covered.

For the benefit of everyone reading (who is interested), I’m going to update the wimax coverage here in this post. Since I always visited the site checking for new coverage, I might as well put up a post to update it here. (Last Updated on 12/12/08)

Today I wrote two entries – “Do Not Throw Away That Cluttering Mindset, Here’s Why” and this personal rant.

A friend of mine just forwarded me this youtube clip of Wimax. It was supposed to be aired on TV for Aidilfitri, but I don’t think it was aired. Since it is still Aidilfitri mood here in Malaysia, do enjoy the clip.

Spoiler (Only read this when you finished watching and do not get the message)

It is a story of a guy who left his hometown to go work in the city. He kept in touch with his folks via video calls etc. However due to the unstable internet connection, he missed the last message from his mother. He was supposed to return to “Muar” (His other hometown) this year. After all the macho pose, he was informed by the neighbour next door that he had returned to the wrong hometown. Funny.. đŸ™‚

Personal Rant : Wimax Next Stop - Penang

Today I wrote two entries – 3 Tips To Stop Work From Following You Home and this personal rant.

Good news to everyone in Penang, Malaysia. It turns out Penang is the next area in Malaysia to be covered by wimax. Apparently P1W1max is given the green light to building the infrastructure, including base stations to provide the wimax services.

I am no where near Penang, but from the way I see it, it shows that nationwide coverage may not just be an empty promise.

You do remember the promise right? 25% of Malaysia covered by year end.

Quoting – “P1 commercially launched its WiMAX services in mid-August, the first operator to do so in Malaysia and the Asia-Pacific region. The company has said it plans to extend coverage to major cities in Johor, Penang, Kedah, Perak, Negeri Sembilan and Malacca by year-end, in line with its mandate to cover 25% of the peninsula’s population. Its services are currently available in selected areas in the Klang Valley.”

Can’t wait

I wrote two entries today – Improve Studying With The Theory of Three and this personal rant.

This is just a followup of my research on P1W1max. Unfortunately my area is not yet covered by wimax, so I will present it here based on what I read in LYN Forum etc.


Generally most of the subscriber are getting what they pay for. An example is like the above screenshot. The download speed is at 1370 kbps and the upload speed is at 709 kbps. This is from one who subscribes to 1200kbps package. In fact the subscribers are actually getting more than what they pay for.

I’m sure the figure will be affected once there are too many subscribers in the area. However, it is said that once the base station had received 80% load, they will setup a new base station. If that promise is kept, nobody will suffer a slow connection again.


A lot of users are expressing concern about their setting the limit of bandwidth to 20GB per month. Even though this is extremely sufficient for normal internet users, heavy downloaders will be affected. But on the positive side, users will be assured of maximum speed since the ISP will be able to predict the bandwidth usage and upgrade accordingly.

Customer Service

Excellent. The customer service technician are well verse with the issues arised, and they are attending to the problem relatively fast. They even send SMS to inform of any upgrade being done.

Conclusion – A service we received will always be as good as the money we pay. But from what I read in the forum, there are a lot of positive review of this wimax. Now, if only they can expedite their nationwide coverage…
