I used to be a Maxis user for years,however,at the beginning of introducing 3G service years ago,Maxis looked like not paying too much effort on improving the call quality at that time,I decided to change to DiGi which could provide a cheaper rate,quite stable download speed(not meaning fast-normally capped under 1Mbps) with not-so-good call quality.
After a large number of investments setting up more 3G cell towers and expanding the coverage both outdoor and indoor,the quality for voice and data service on both networks should be better.So in this morning,I made a group of simple speed tests to see which one has a better 3G network.Please see the comparison:
The tests were done through speedtest tool in my cellphone-Google Nexus One,supporting up to HSDPA 7.2 Mbps,HSUPA 2 Mbps.
The results show the fact that Maxis is really moving faster than DiGi,at least its indoor 3G performance is better as all tests were done in the study room of my sweet home in Tmn Sri Sentosa,KL area during the peak hour(10am).
I think I will try another mobile service provider Umobile soon because the recent prepaid plan is so attractive.I will let you know whether it could perform better.Frankly speaking,if Umobile can do it well,I will definitely shift to them.Stay tuned!
