With the launch of UniFi (RM149 for 5 Mbps package), it looks ridiculous that Streamyx 4 Mbps is priced at RM160 (current promo). Lower speed but more expensive? Read in The Star today the price of the current Streamyx package remains the same, except for Streamyx 4 Mbps – the price is reduced to RM140. So went to TMPoint Menara Telekom today to do enquiry.
I went there, and ask the salesgirl about the price of Streamyx 4 Mbps, she mentioned RM160. Then I told her I read in the newspaper that it is reduced to RM140? She didn’t answer my question. LOL
As I mentioned in my previous entry, I’m currently under Celcom’s Hop, Home Away package.
This package combines Streamyx 1 Mbps with Celcom 3G Broadband Basic for RM108 monthly. Plus RM30 phone line rental, this will be RM138 monthly. Compare that to RM140 for Streamyx 4 Mbps (including phone line rental). It looks like it is time for me to upgrade
This is where something ugly emerges, and things got really complicated. You see, when I apply for Celcom’s Home, Hop Away last time, my Streamyx account is no longer under TM, and now the service is managed by Celcom. So if I want to terminate my 3G Broadband package, my Streamyx account will be terminated too. In other words, if I want to apply for Streamyx 4 Mbps, I need to terminate my current Streamyx account, and apply a new one.
Wah! That sounds complicated. And with my new house expected to finish end of this year, there will be another headache again of transferring this new Streamyx account to a new place, which I can’t temporary terminate since I’m still under minimum contact period. I guess I have to stick to whatever I have for now. Sigh!
