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.

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 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 information 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.
