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

Thanks for sharing the info. But the international ping still bad, the speed not even reach 10Mb/sec, thats is not good for a fiber optic network.

i think tm is trying to take care about local network first before proceeding to take care about international link. well if the routing to tm is bad or problematic, the international link would be slower right?

I wonder if the D-Link router is a requirement, or if it can be put in a closet in favor of our own equipment. It's not something I would want on my network.

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..
goodluck! btw, u sure it's 1997?? if im not mistaken, streamyx was rolled out in 2000...

Its already V2, congrats.

But no good news for East Malaysia yet... but there's already some company enjoy fiber optics already.

we can live without it even it'll reach Kuching in 2014 or 2020. biggrin.gif In fact, I'm happy with my 1mbps.
What we want to see is overall performance (stability + speed offers + price). And I'm waiting for at least a few negative comments HSBB users smile.gif

you're making one assumption.

If that speed and most importantly, the connection, are consistent.

pingtest.net results.. obviously the test to kl server is very good.. tests to other servers shows relatively high ping... with 0% packet loss and almost no jitter all TM have to do is deal with the high ping time.. and they're all set!!

the fiber optic cable will terminate to the fiber modem.. the router & DECT phone connects to the modem... not sure about ur router though, if im not mistaken tm is using vlan in the router for troubleshooting purposes...
besides the router provided is not that bad, heck its even free...

Oh ok, thanks for the info, as long as the service is good. I have the same ping to USA with my 1Mbps. I seek for a lower ping after the 'real' upgrade.

Yes, means having HSBB around is not solving the performance that were issued long time ago. I haven't seen that people talk about HSBB IPV6. Anyone have this info...?

Don't forget most of us are using dynamic IP Address. It is almost stability and reliability lies behind the HSBB project.
