The underlying network is the same right? Maxis is just re-distributing the TM fibre network?

From what I can see, Unifi seems like the better value because it includes HyppTV.

Unifi:
RM149 for 5Mbps (60GB d/l limit), free phone calls to fixed TM lines (quite a lot of phones are on TM), HyppTV.


Maxis:
RM128 for 4Mbps (30GB d/l limit), free phone calls to fixed Maxis lines (not that many people have Maxis land line?), free phone calls to Maxis mobiles.

or

RM158 for 6Mbps (60GB d/l limit), but no HyppTV.

I think Maxis is pricing their services are the wrong level. If they priced their 4Mbps offering at RM98 (instead of RM128) and their 6Mbps offering at RM128, then it would make it harder for people to choose between Unifi and Maxis Fibre.

To me, HyppTV is not really a necessity, but the RM21 difference for 1Mbps more speed, 30GB more d/l capacity, and free phone calls to TM lines is making me go for Unifi. Plus my parents and siblings are all on Unifi, so it's free phone calls to everyone!

Hi, bro, I suggest you get TM unifi instead of Maxis. Better. And until now the download limit is not implement yet.
If you are interested to apply. but no time to go to nearer TM point. You can find me, no extra charge.

Maxis is renting their fibre optics from TM if i am not mistaken. I took a look at their road show at One U 2 days ago. When i saw the brochure, i decided unifi was cheaper. The maxis one was so expensive, considering even more that they have a quota. If unifi dun hav quota, its a no brainer. Unless maxis comes up with a more convincing plan and pricing, unifi would be the best choice between the two.

I find the HyppTv service to be utter garbage. As far as pricing goes, it's impossible to outdo TM as they monopolize last mile cabling. Thank heavens Unifi isn't plagued by the same problems as Streamyx. Service quality has been very reliable so far, but maybe that's because their subscriber base is still low.

maxis FTTH has quota, unifi doesnt. Maxis rents from unifi and is not so much difference compared to Unifi in terms of pricing. The only thing that will set it apart is the connection stability and speeds.

Thats the only problem. Its not exactly 'NATIONWIDE" yet. Even the wireless broadbands. Gotta take some time and wait till they reach your area.

if that available, that will be DiGi business strategy way, not Maxis..

TIME Fibre got 2Mbps RM99, cheapest fiber plan, but very limited coverage in KL only

It depends on the packages you subscribed.

Maxis ADSL and Fibre are flat rate packages. You pay a fixed fee every month.

But for their mobile packages you need to be extra careful. Restrict your credit limit and take care of your mobile data traffic usage.

There's almost zero complains about Maxis fixed line ADSL here on Lowyat.That alone is proof of how good it is except for the NAT routing.

In general they provide better equipment and more professional installation compared to TM. No rempit style installers visiting your homes. They take the extra effort to return call to customers for feedbacks and fault solving.

Maxis has yet to unleash its secret IPTV plans which has been trialed and proven to be very successful in Australia called Fetch TV. ASTRO IPTV is just to buy time for them to make better preparations.

Besides it depends on market. There are some places where people hardly pick up the TM fixed line anymore.

that is true. TM is losing their appeal if im not mistaken. Nowadays, other broadband companies are able to deliver with prices. take for example telcos, P1, YES...etc.

All main infra is by TM then sell by bulk to other provider, some area have problem with certain provider some may not. So choose whichever to ur liking service and price wise.

But i will go with TM cause know who to complain to get fast response and have been cheated by celcom last time by giving lame excuse like we are upgrading. same excuse for 1 whole year and this is verified by 1 of my family member who worked as phone support. they dont even plan to assist u in your problem, just try to mislead people by giving false promises.

Even complain to MCMC the case was closed by the same lame excuse, "we are currently upgrading". pay for 3.6mb plan n get 100kbps for 1 year.

So if u hate TM go to others and vice versa, there's is no perfect service base on area and the price ur paying now.

u want no interruption plan with 99.7% uptime per year and best effort above 80% of the bandwidth, pay rm80K/year for 4mb leased line. Then u get marvelous support and response time from them.

that is gonna be costing everyone a bomb. It kinda feels like fast broadband speeds is a privelege for the rich. It should not be that way. Nasib some wireless broadbands are able to deliver.

I'm using Maxis fiber internet and so far I'm happy with it. I'm currently waiting for TMnut to take me to court because I did not complete my contract with them... why should I when they provide SH*t internet service. yes, some may argue that Maxis cost more for over use. But the bottom line is that their internet is stable.

Dude, Maxis Home is present in Puchong area, that is for sure. Because Maxis Home is actually the same with UniFi's backgone, thus, if there is UniFi, surely there is Maxis Home too.

Talking about that, the subscription to Maxis Home has increased tremendously of late due to various strategies and promotions.

Currently, there is a FREE 1st MONTH SUBSCRIPTION and also RM50 JUSCO VOUCHER for every successful sign up.

For more info, do drop me a PM or visit my official lelong advert at
http://www.lelong.com.my/maxis-home-broadb...2-06-Sale-P.htm

To those who have done the comparison, yes, MAXIS OFFERS BETTER VALUE FOR MONEY COMPARED TO UNIFI!!!!! :-)

probably is your wifi signal not good
if you are getting 90% of the signal quality your problem should be gone

i think this is the first batch / release package?
the problem is that when they give the RM128 is only available in a certain places/areas.

when ur place got this broadband service, you will not get this good price anymore.
something like buying a nissan almera first release price is 60k+ last year, but it is like 70k+

not sure abt the modem as maxis provides alcatel (white color)..
but the RG (wifi) is diff: maxis = thompson or technicolor; Unifi = D-link

both RG not reliable! but unifi you can swap with other RG as the dect phone connects directly to the BTU (modem)

i saw the router and phone is same with unifi from my bro house, just the modem is different box.

i consider the same since the backbone is unifi, probably the ID is different domain

maybe that's what Unifi folks did to maxis. As I know Maxis Fibre comes in two flavors - one riding on Maxis own core network, another one riding on TM's existing network. From what I heard, the former one always outperforms the latter by miles ahead.

Hmm shouldnt be that case if ur uncle's internet speed is normal. The data lagging might come from the topbox, should the topbox command packaets sent to and from the main gateway for channels are not in sync then the lagging will occure. This one will need to file complaint to Astro and have them to verify on the command part.

i found that the maxis home fiber 10MBPS that i using sometimes can hit to 1MBPS, and sometimes as slow as 100KBPS, which i found it wasn't having a stable download speed.

normally when i use the unifi 5MBPS speed can hit a stable 500 / 600KBPS.

should i cancel maxis home fiber? the maxis or unifi cancellation fee both rm500.

Its doesnt surprise me that Maxis speed can go into inconsistency. Unifi which uses inhouse core network uses dedicated IP on each link hence what you get in Unifi is a dedicated established link for your particular acc. But for Maxis case, some of their infra is leasing on TM's backbone bearer. To further minimize the cost, of coz Maxis opt to lease one dedicated IP link from TM (Its in high capacity of coz), then Maxis will further distribute the link using their virtue IP to each customer. So you get a 'virtual IP' link that runs on a bulk dedicated link, means sharing with others on a huge capacity link.

My advise is if you til the speed are still acceptable, then why wanna waste the RM500 ? Wait until the contract ends then only change it.

actually i get my new Unifi at Oct last year, and I just get the Maxis in August.
if Maxis home fiber having stable connection speed then i be happy to stay with Maxis.
problem is i won't know when my downloads complete. with Unifi i can estimate when my downloads complete and ready to check my files.

currently the 2 account still running, but i can use 1 of them currently Maxis.
i can cancel any 1 anytime, probably Maxis. i had paying more in Unifi so for the next few months i no need to pay. gosh, i need to pay RM500 for termination of bad connection.

Then you can compare both by using each per month and gauge the differences.

i think the problem is on Maxis LAN/Wifi router, some mechanism were executed behind Maxis user.

maybe i try switch my TP-link router tonight and try the download speed again.

TM UniFi is generally better.

Although there are numerous complaints all this while about problems caused by TM's equipment & fibre cables, since Maxis is riding on the same infrastrucsture, any problems will affect both TM UniFi & Maxis Fibre subscribers!

UniFi costs higher due to IPTV service is bundled together, of course some argues that they don't need the IPTV service so Maxis more worth it. I do agree here.

But Maxis imposed throttling from 8pm to 2am, supposedly only for P2P traffic but recently there are complaints it also affected HTTP.

Besides, for installation & support, dealing with TM alone is easier as you only go through TM. But if you are Maxis subscriber, you will deal through Maxis, then Maxis deals with TM (as most issues almost always involve TM) and hence you are more likely to get slow response. There are a lot of horror stories by Maxis subscribers concerning troubleshooting & relocation of service.
