some one gave me the brand new celcom 3G broadband modem for a week test. he told me that give it a try and put in in your blog. wah! celcom also read my blog meh ??? tochei tochei.
anyway, the usb modem is so easy to use. just cucuk main only. plug and play. software is built in so once you cucuk it will main. click on installation and viola.. it’s ready (provided that you have the sim card inside) there are a few packages offered and those info is in their website 🙂
its a small device, just a size of two condom pack. one drawback is its gonna eat up one of your usb port at your pc. depending on your package it will use 3G or 3.5G though i’m not sure if it can do anything with our gigi.
Well dont be fooled with the numbers (To my friend – i’m going to be honest. i’ll write base from my pengalaman okeh. will try not to hide anything nor promote. its basically base from my pengalaman)
in reality ist about 0 to 10 Kbps upload/download only. its good for average email and stuff. but if u’re downloading stuffs or viewing pages that furnished with graphics and photos, it’ll take some time! honest. there are some time where download/upload speed is somehow above 50 kbps. line problem ??
then came the some disconnection thinggy. i dont know, maybe its the line, its the modem or what but it seems that somehow it just decide to disconnect itself. not so frequent though but its still not gud okeh. ermm it gets hot too! an aircon room might solve the problem.
as you can see, this modem is pretty handy. it gets the power from the notebook and a simple click will let you get connected. practically you can berinternet anywhere as long as there is celcom coverage. just bring your lappy. errr its also can connect to your desktop pc but i’m not so cool of the idea. i mean you dont take your desktop pc anywhere with u rite!
all in all; its a good device. with the subscription of about rm100 per month (depending on your package) i still can consider a value for money. there are some housing/office area that are still dont have a landline to connect; then this is a thing for you. for those who frequently on the move and need a connection, this should be considered. though we have hotspots around but having this device in your bag will make sure you would not be in the darkness if you cant find any free wifi’s.
but if u were a super duper heavy internet junkie, online gamers, well… i dont really advice you on this.
