Kudos to P1 & Some Updates

Its been a long time since I’ve touched my blog anyway. I have been busy lately as you most of you guys do know. Anyway, this time – I would like to take this opportunity to praise P1 WiMax on their new feedback system for us Trial users and as well as their new packaging scheme. Well , every week we are required to fill out whats the speed that we get , our latency (ping rates) and hows the speed and so on. I think its a good way for them to collect data and monitor to improvise their service , as I am slowly seeing that they are doing couple of changes based on user-feedback (which is again great , this is because you’re winning users’ hearts over) . One thing that caught my heart is that they clearly ADVERTISE whats the limit that we are allowed to use before ‘fair usage policy kicks in’ (in other words , your speed would be throttled aka your bandwidth would be managed)

New P1 WiMax packages
New P1 WiMax packages- Most importantly the user cap is stated clearly for each of the packages. Its not hidden or typed in very very small font !

One thing though – I do find 5GB is too little for Lite users. Hopefully they do raise the cap to 10GB , this way at least lite users do have a chance as well. Why am I saying this is because updates for Windows , anti-virus definition , new software are getting bigger and bigger by day and I don’t think that 5GB is enough personally. Anyway , its a great move of highlighting the cap , so far this is the first ISP which have ever done so (Shame on you Maxis and Celcom for not stating it clearly in the site.)
Next up , is the feedback form which we have to submit every week or every time when we call up the Customer Care representative. Well I kinda like the whole concept whereby we can share our opinon and give our own feedback to them. As someone who is taking statistics , the data would help a lot for them to determine the pattern and usage behaviour . This is very important to get the sample from a very small population to determine how it would be like for a large population. Anyhow  , let me take a screenshot of how the survey form looks like , so you folks can take a look at it for yourself
The survey thingy - All you have to do is just fill it up !

These are great moves (both marketing and strategy wise). I just do hope that they do enable port forwarding/pass through in the modem , that allows P1 WiMax users to host games (especially if you’re a gamer) or to allow applications to link up to the outside world (i.e Torrent applications and so on). This is great especially if you plan to run test web server , php server , game server whereby you want outsiders to connect and tes it all together. Currently its not possible. But I do hope its possible by end of this month !
P.S to P1 WiMax folks – If you’re reading this as well , come up with a package for gamers as well. It would be great , just provide them with the best “route” or “optimised ping times” for them to play online role playing games without any lag !. For gamers , latency is important as opposed to speed.

  1. Ya, i do think p1 is a good company.
    but the down side is they offer too low bandwidth cap and they didnt state that the speed will only go down 25% if you use over the limit (correct me if im not wrong) which is an advantage for them.
    And still need some time to wait for them to cover up the whole KL, and take YEARS to cover up the whole malaysia, or like what maxis or digi coverage we having now…
    still a long way to go, so streamyx wont die so fast!
    Haha
    Maybe this is a good chance for streamyx to improve their system, revice their plan etc etc.
    joshuatlys last blog post..Terminator The Sarah Connor Chronicles is back!

  2. You guys in Peninsula very lucky to get P1 Wimax service. Green packet is very committed to roll out wireless broadband compare to YtlE and Redtone. For us here is Sabah, no hope. Redtone is deadmeat. I really hope Government is give green light to P1 Wimax here too.

  3. The crux of your writing while sounding reasonable at first, did not sit properly with me after some time. Somewhere throughout the sentences you actually were able to make me a believer but just for a very short while. I however have got a problem with your leaps in assumptions and one might do well to help fill in all those gaps. In the event that you actually can accomplish that, I would undoubtedly end up being amazed.
