Porting over from Maxis to U Mobile

Tuesday, March 1st, 2016

Swapping or porting over your telco plan to another such as Maxis to U Mobile can be tedious. Mine was not easy because it was a supplementary plan latched onto my wife’s Maxis principal line. Maxis is still the best telco in West Malaysia having the best LTE/3G internet data coverage as such they do charge a premium for their service. The supplementary line was more for backup as I still have my work line with Maxis. Besides the supplementary at RM30 only has 250MB of internet data was not quite sufficient, so it was time to move over to another telco.

Maxis LTE (4G) Speed Test

Monday, September 15th, 2014

Since while I was doing some 3G speed test comparison, I may as well did the LTE / 4G speed test from Maxis. However my Nokia Lumia 925 is a Windows Phone, I decided to share the internet connection to my other devices instead of directly testing it. This may produce higher latency as the data signal need to hop from cell towers to a WiFi Hotspot then to my Acer Iconia and Samsung Note phone. Still it was just a rough estimation for the kind of data speed we should be receiving from the telco operators.
