Hello to my dearest readers (if there are still reading this blog)
Anyway , I was browsing Jeff Ooi’s site (yes , I am sorta following his blog ) and one article stumbled me and took my breath away – Maxis’ Broadband rant. I do recommend you to read his whole article and his thoughts in his blog . What caught me is that it seems that Maxis has still not improved their service . That is not something new , I thought that things would have changed , unfortunately its not. Oh , not to mention that I fully agree with Jeff Ooi on this matter that Maxis should not be doing triple-play , just solely focus on one – Voice . That’s enough. This what happens when a teleco tries to be an ISP and fails at it.
Anyway ,what concerns me most is the Maxis Latest Promtoion. I pretty much laughed when I first heard they came up with the whole music concept thingy. Marketing strategy i guess in order to win over people. For instance , Maxis did offer couple of bloggers a test drive of their Dell laptop + Maxis Broadband bundle and blog wherever they can and write up their experience (in other words , just tell how “great” is their service). Just click here (or do a google search on maxis broadband and blogger). You’ll notice some positive reviews like it , done by people in order to get freebies. Not only that , I was surprised when maxis was promoting their redesigned modem (their limited edition music designs)
My question is , shouldn’t be maxis focusing on expanding their Broadband and 3G Services by buying more International links and improvising their 3G/HSPDA services nationwide instead of doing such thing. My plea to maxis is that if you’re reading this (chances are yes – I do know) – Just improvise your broadband service , blocking ports and not allowing folks to play online MMORPG (I am not talking about latency here) during normal hours and only allowing it to be played from 1 am to 6 am isn’t the right way to do it as it would discourage people from registring your broadband
I do hope that you take this note and improve on your service. I am happy with P1 , eventhough they might have hiccups here and there. I do get a prompt reply from P1 staff on the issues which I’ve discussed with them via e-mail . Currently , I’ve taken a look at the port forwarding concept and it seems to be that they’ll be releasing the firmware soon – which is great and it puts a smile on gamers face as finally they can play and host games without a problem (or a hitch)
So Maxis , try to improvise your service. Oh yeah just to let my readers know – I am not going to buy the iPhone 3G at all as I think that its not worth it (the package) , as it seem to be overpriced.
