This is a sad day for Malaysian, when a little company with little coverage can give minimum 100 Mbps for the same price as big company 30 Mbps plan. This is so wrong in so many level. Instead of busy proposing for blog registration, Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak should be busy asking Telekom Malaysia (TM) why TIME can do it and why they can’t.
Also to be noted, TIME give their customer “Symmetrical Speed” while TM give their customer “Asymmetrical Speed”.
Symmetric bandwidth corresponds to the situation when the maximum rate of transfer is the same in both directions. Many (if not most) paths are of this type. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the path is symmetric.
Asymmetric bandwidth corresponds to the situation when the maximum rate of transfer is different in each direction. A typical case might be a DSL line with 768 kbps upload and 1.5 Mbps download.
I’m wonder the reason TM plan to stick with Asymmetrical speed related to what Datuk Seri Salleh Said Keruak said but this is not cheaper. It’s more expensive than TIME Fibre!
