So Much For Streamyx

I strongly believe that when i say Streamyx is the best, i'll be bombarded with shoes or anything thats smelly or dirty, or maybe tomatoes and vegetables. A general statement to all, we dont hate Streamyx, its just that at times we would prefer a better service with our hard earn money paid.

Im living with the connection speed of 512kbps and it cost my family RM66 (without modem).

And just to brush up a little, here's what UK is providing its citizen.

24MB with just £18 per month, here

With the monthly fees of £18, they could enjoy 24MB connectivity. Let me do the math for you, thats around RM100 for 24MB. Suffering here in Malaysia, RM100 could only earn you a 1MB. Its 24 folds!!!

In more sarcastic manner, we are 24 times behind UK. Well, that "24" is a variable that exponentially increases its integer, thats what i thought. Ladies and gentlemen, if you were to benchmark our country, the figure itself is enough to justify where we are now. That is how far we are left behind, an inconvenience truth.

Just picture what i could do if i could get my 24MB... Every Tuesday when the new episode of Heroes is out, the next minute, i could get it done. Imagine downloading 1GB of file in an hour, thats how cool it is. Whatever that i want from movie to anime, mp3 to files, i could have it the very next moment i click on the download button. Impressive isnt it?

Back to reality... im still struggling with my endlessly disappointing connection.

If there's any good in Streamyx, do feel free to correct me...

The worst part is that unless 'developing countries' like Malaysia actually improve FASTER than developed countries like the UK they are never going to catch up. We are in fact falling further & further behind. Developing countries need to realise that they are chasing a moving target.

Vince: Create awareness. Thats the best we could do. Cant help it couldnt we?

Anonymous: Thanks for dropping by. The world is constantly spinning, and our country is in fact developing. However, we here living in Malaysia being least appreciative by benchmarking it with others fast growing nation. Thats where the feeling of less satisfied came in. But still it doesnt change the reality of us far left behind...
