Another fellow beta tester, eimzic's utorrent screenshot & 2 youtube videos (speedtest, download speed, speed & time it takes to buffer a 720p youtube video & ping in command prompt)

before HSBB,
ping to DNS streamyx was like 12ms -14ms with frequent timed out..
and google takes >200ms

now, no timed out..
and ping is fast as pinging to own home router.  tongue.gif

..different story when comes to ping outside Malaysia.  sweat.gif

Here is the upload speed using wireless on my laptop (the ping increased a little because of wireless):

Here is the singapore speed, notice the ping.

International ping is still too high. Browsing experience is almost the same with streamyx with this kind of ping.

Are we going to increase our international bandwidth?

Our underseas fiber optios are always congested and break for no reason.

yeap, almost a whole day.. kinda depends on the amount of wiring needed for ur house.. the installation of the hardware (modem, router and btu) itselft should take little time.. pulling the fiber cable from the tel. pole should take quite some time since the fragile nature of fiber optic cables.. my installation took 2 days.. 1st day they came and did all the drilling and hardware fixing, the 2nd the pulled the fiber cable...

they chose me, mainly because of subscribing streamyx for a very long time (practically since it's been out) my area has at least 3 ppl testing out hsbb.. tongue.gif

How to be a beta tester?

My area is supposed to be in Q1.

I got a letter saying about free trial in May

i got a letter HAND DELIVERED to my house by TM staff.. the letter says congrats on being chosen to have a FREE trial of the service for a few months time.. u dont really have to do anything once u got the letter, just wait for TM staff to call u.. in my case it was 2 days after i got the letter... installation was approx 1 week after the call..

Trial speed as advertised by TM is 20Mbps, even from the 1st day of installation I was able to hit 18-19Mbps on local sites..

International speed is a bit slow though, and the high ping is definately not gonna help with online gaming. Hopefully TM fixes this when it rolls out HSBB to the public.

I got my trial "invitation letter" delivered to me personally by a TM staff. 2 days later they called to set up and appointment for installation. Installation, in my case, took them 2 days to complete. The 1st day they installed the hardware stuff (Fiber modem, BTU and router), the 2nd day the pulled the fiber optic wire from the telephone pole to the house and did some wiring to the house.

Actually the installation shouldn't take that long, it all depends on the layout of the house AND/OR whether or not any extra wiring is needed. It's actually a pretty straight forward process..

To those that waiting for their installation, these are some of the things that u should expect to be included

1. fiberHOME Modem (Fiber Optic Modem)

2. Dlink DIR-615 Wireless N Router (or as TM calls them RESIDENTIAL GATEWAY)

user posted image

This is not the exact one, the one TM provides is white and orange, with TM branding.. Also on the front is a USB port.. Not sure on the functionality of it, maybe the Dlink SharePort functionality.

3. Aztech Cordless Phone (plugs into the fiberHOME Modem)

Aztech E210-P2

4. A goodybag (Some instruction manuals, brochure, limited edition Bunkface CD and Headphone
