TM Streamyx recently adds a new 8Mbps plan for RM160 monthly into the existing product lines to give some choices to the users who want to get the faster speed,but haven’t covered by Unifi service.
The 8 Mbps BB Deal could be applied by new and existing users.However,due to the technical limitation,some applicants may not able to get that plan as the speed is hard to be reachable.You could check the availability of coverage here.
TM recently announced several promotions for the coming months.
Super Speed Me
Offering to upgrade to a higher speed plan and in the free 3 months after upgrading,just paying the currently monthly charge and the new one will only be charged from the 4th month.

Yes,it’s not wrong.Only RM30 for 30 premium channels.You could subscribe the pack through myUniFi Portal,HyppTV IPTV remote control,call TM Unifi Center 1800821222,visit the nearest selected TM point or TM authorized resellers.
TM Unifi is a fibre optical service which provides up to 20Mbps internet and IPTV services to the users.The default modem that is given by TM is from D-Link.Many users founds that the performance is not so good,especially it will get frequent disconnection when it’s under heavy usage and not for good WiFi coverage too.
TP-Link,a leading brand on network products,sells a large variety of modem products and some of the users have tested to replace D-Link modem by TP-Link products such as TL-WR841N/ND Version 7 and TL-WR1043ND.
After months of testing,they have finally released official firmwares for fully support of Unifi service(including IPTV).The latest firmware for WR841N/ND is TL-WR841ND_v7_120221_MY;for WR1043ND is TL-WR1043ND_V1_120210(click the links for downloading the firmware).
If you don’t know how to setup the modem,you could refer to klseet.com .
After 4 weeks waiting,today TM finally sent 2 installation teams to my house to do the job-one team was concerned on outdoor cable connection,another team was concerned on indoor network setup.
I live in a low rise apartment so that FTTH is the way of installation,not VDSL.The total installation took about 2 hours and all went quite smoothly.Now I can enjoy 10Mbps download/upload speed(Unifi VIP10) simultaneously and watch clear TV content.
Actually those things are not a bid deal.However,it still lets me feel upset.
Firstly,I’m waiting for Android 2.3 ‘Gingerbread’ coming to my Nexus One since it was released by Google last month.I was heard some official source saying that it would be available in Nexus one in few weeks.Well,the said weeks have been a month.Yet I haven’t seen any signal of OTA.
Damn it!It’s so terrible that knowing the stuff but can’t catch it.Some people may say I could root my phone and apply other third party mods.I know they are working quite well,but I don’t want to make my warranty void so soon.So Google and the Android development team,I hope you could hear my voice and let it out a.s.a.p. to eliminate my sadness.
Secondly,it’s linking to some tech stuff again.It’s about my broadband service.I have been using Streamyx service for 8 years.On the other words,I have borne the slow upload speed provided by this sort of service for such long.I can’t express how excited I was when I heard that my area would be able to get the fiber optics service called ‘Unifi’ which can support up to 20Mbps synchronously in January 2011.I was then be informed lately that it will only be here in late March.That means there are another 2 months to go.
Ok,nothing I can do.I may only pray to get them earlier as the gift for Chinese new year.
Just move in the house that we bought,everything is new – decoration,furniture,electric items and of course,applying new online service.
I used to apply Streamyx 4Mbps service,but the line quality could not afford that plan.Well,luckily the copper line here is better and so I could enjoy the faster online experience now.One week ago,the line had been activated and yesterday the technician had capped the DSLAM port speed to 5Mbps to let me get the full speed that I subscribed.Here are the speed test results:
Overall,the results are quite satisfied.However,for me it’s not enough yet,especially the unlink is very slow that can’t fit the needs for P2P sharing or video conference.I think I will subscribe Unifi VIP20 once it’s available.I wish it could be here soon.
Well,the prices are finally here.We can see that the packages are all bundled with IPTV,VOIP and Data(broadband) services and there’s a volume cap for data usage.If later I subscribe UniFi,I have to choose the most expensive one as it is given 120GB download volume which may just fit my use.So I don’t know which plan will be the best for those heavy users who always visit YouTube for HD video clips or other online stream.
Frankly speaking,I have to say that TM is failing to make a better service again.
