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.

Speed Test: Maxis vs Celcom vs DiGi

Friday, September 12th, 2014

I decided once and for all to check telco connection using speed test app. This may not be accurate but gives a fair idea between Maxis vs Celcom vs DiGi. To set it up, I downloaded the Android App: Internet Speed Test by V-Speed.eu version 1st August 2014 and installed it in my Acer Iconia A501 tablet and Samsung Note II mobile phone.

The telco SIM card package that I used for this test were the Maxis Surfmore 30 postpaid, Celcom XPAX 24 prepaid and DiGi Best Prepaid plans. Other than the informatio

n that they provided from their websites, there weren’t much info about their max data internet speed and how they cap and throttle your data connection when large amount of internet data was being shuffled about.

Samsung Note 3 Endless Reboot Loop

Sunday, July 6th, 2014

Sometimes mobile phone updates can be a little risky. Just this morning, I saw the update symbol prompt for the Samsung Note 3. Little did I know, I would end up in an endless reboot loop!

I thought the update would have been automatic, when I pressed the Samsung software update button and left the phone alone and came back to it later thinking the update process would have been done.
