3G should be sufficient for people who already have wired broadband. The 3G would be a backup and especially useful to those who often travel within Malaysia.

You guys should really read about what you're buying before purchase. It saves a lot of aggro later on, and unnecessary and unjustified ranting when things don't turn out the way you assumed.

Here's where you can read about it, if you bothered looking.

Please, folks, be a smart consumer wink.gif

guys i tried u torrent on this 3g (8 ringgit/day) .. total wreck!

i suspected as much because i am given an internal ip address by Celcom (10.299.x.x), which means i am effectively behind a firewall together with many other celcom broadband users.

anyone experience this? mind posting your IP address

/side jk:- We got more telco ?? zzz

Anyway..back to topic

I don't think it's worth...see the devices prices and such...its over rm 1k..plus its not guaranteed that you'll get that hi-speed...especially if that telco is from TM..nut...

And again, coverage is an issue...

soul2soul, yes, celcom does that. You will also face problem when download from rapidshare, basically it's inaccessible due to somebody else from the same IP already downloading. I am using celcom now and thought of discontinue it if things go on like this.

You do not get public IPs on a 3G network, at least here in Malaysia. All traffic goes through one internet gateway; therefore to the outside world, all users share the same public IP address. File hosters which control download by IP address will be almost unusable, such as rapidshare, megaupload, megashares, etc. Forget about downloading from these sites if you use 3G.

10.299.x.x is not a valid IP address wink.gif

10.299.x.x is a class C IP Address , it means that its an Internal IP

On the other hand , Maxis offers IP Address (I mean real world IP Address and you're not behind somekind of whacko router). I am not sure how long there are going to give public IP Address. Sooner or later they will just use a gateway to allow all traffic to flow through

on the contrary, maxis used to give out internal ip address (class C) when i tried out their GPRS services.

but for the last 2 months i noticed maxis has started to give me global ip address.

i am using maxis-gprs also, and here are my address


client ip: 58.71.x.x
server ip:10.6.6.6

sometimes i can get server ip as 0.0.0.0

can some network guru tell me how maxis can do this while other telco like Digi/celcom cant?

this is the main reason i still subscribe to maxis unlimited plan RM120/month.

i am currently using Celcom broadband (not primarily btw and im on Huawei E620 & Huawei E220) and i have to say, for daily usage, the speed is quite good, and that includes direct downloading from sites like microsoft.com, mozilla, etc etc. it will go as fast as 40-50kb download, but not constant lar. on average, somewhere between 20-30kb. not bad, downloading files less than 100mb shouldn't be a problem.

not sure bout p2p though coz i am not a big fan of BT. will try it with emule later.

Talking about VPN, yes it does helps to get around with the internal IP problem. I am using it now.
