TM’s High Speed Broadband (HSBB) and photo

“This is a broadband service offering network speeds of up to 4.0Mbps delivered via wired, wireless and mobile technologies such as ADSL, wi-fi, WiMax and high-speed downlink packet access and is available nationwide,” said TM Group chief executive officer, Dato’ Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa.

I’m not going to compare Malaysia’s network speed with Korea’s 14.6 Mbps. Really.

Why?

Cos Malaysia got to replace those oldie physical copper wires with fiber ones before we can speed up the virtual internet autobahn like them Koreans. If you are a KL night owl, you might have noticed those TM contractors working feverishly digging out copper wires and replacing with fiber cables.

No fiber, no real speed. Reality sucks, doesn’t it.

And until Malaysia is truly fibered, we’re stuck in between dreams of surfing up to 4.0Mbps, I guess.
.
Having been using Streamyx’s 1.0Mbps for so long, I jumped at a friend’s invite to test out the High Speed Broad Band (HSBB) a few week ago.

If you have tried watching CNN at peak time with ye Streamyx, you’ll know that it is a stop and go watch. But HSBB, no problem, streaming is very steady, no interuption to the CNN live videos.

Haven’t tested video upload speed to Youtube using HSBB, yet. Need to try before giving more praise (if applicable).

btw, I wish TM will be less coy and let consumers know when the HSBB real deal will be available to all other places beyond the Bangsar, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Shah Alam and Subang Jaya areas. Don’t la expect busy consumers to search through your TM website for the information, netizens are not paid to do that.

Anyways, if TM really want to convert us to HSBB, put lar TM big, big ads with enticing subscription fees to grab our eyeballs at places where we meet/talk in the internet. I don’t mind hosting a paid ad or two in me blog (heeheeheehee)

Here’s to affordable HSBB, speed and access to information so important to drive the Malaysian high income economy dream.

To drool over HSBB gadgets, see photo below.

2009… another sexy year with ADUN Bukit Lanjan’s Elizabeth Wong?

Malaysians are again entertained with sexy exposures with political figures…

Ain’t most of us glad for nice sexy diversion from the heavy Perak political crisis.

Brought to you for your viewing pleasure courtesy of Elizabeth Wong‘s former boyfriend who has done either following:

1. Used the handphone to take photo of former girlfriend sleeping

or

2. Downloaded it to PC

or

3. Forgot about the photo in PC or Handphone and send it for repair or sold the hardwares without erasing them photos.

Wait a minute… I’m getting a dejavu feeling here… Ah… it’s like Edison Chen‘s sexual adventure replay Malaysian version 2009 la.

or

Maybe it’s like Chua Soi Lek sex story replay Malaysian version 2009?

hmmm……

For now real politics can be forgotten briefly. Now the politicians can get busy going all moral and talk pulpit sermons. Summon the fire and brimstones on the morally loose…!!!

Even Elizabeth Wong’s friends in PKR are questioning her morality here:

“Kini timbul desakan agar beliau meletak jawatan kerana moralnya dipertikaikan.

Sementara itu, Naib Presiden PKR Azmin Ali berkata pihaknya tidak akan berkompromi dalam isu gambar bogel Elizabeth Wong. Katanya, PKR akan mendapatkan keterangan Exco itu serta laporan polis sebelum memutuskan tindakan lanjut. Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim pula berkata isu itu akan dibincang dalam mesyuarat Exco Negeri, Rabu ini.” (Agenda Daily)

I wonder if the women rights groups will come out to defend one of their sister whose rights have been sullied. Eeerrr… rights and privacy, anyone?

Media having a field day today.
