As the title says, I went to the P1 Wimax Headquarters last Tuesday with Reng Kwan and his friend, Emily. She wanted to terminate her P1 Wimax Wiggy Subscription after 5 days due to unsatisfactory service from P1. Full refund, of course.
I tagged along just because I wanted to have a peek at the P1 office. Heard from people that it looked quite nice and since there’s a free trip , why not? haha. Snapped a few photos there too with my SEk550i. Blur photos indeed.
As you can see, P1 displays their products and most of them are actually running units. That means the device is switched on and not just for display.
The office was okok lah. The only thing I found nice there was the free beverage dispensing machine provided and you can have Milo, coffee, mocha, hot water, cold water, etc.
Yup it was FREE.
I drank 2 cups of Milo and mocha. Haha. That would be equal to RM0.90 x 4 if its compared to the Sunway’s machine which is 2x more dilute than the one provided here.
Ok next, let’s check out how well does the Wiggy perform right at its own base.
Phailed! I did a ping test to my own site and the pings were unstable and had many packet loss.. Pings ranged from 80ms to 300ms.. It wasn’t good. However after 5mins of testing, it became more stable and no more packet loss. Perhaps there was an interference at that moment? Anyway wireless=no no. Wired= yes yes.
I also managed to do a speed test with the line. The 10mbps rated Wiggy was only running at 4mbps max.
Youtube lagged when HD streaming was enabled.
Conclusion. I’m disappointed with Wiggy.
It was nice of them to provide a Dell Studo 17″ for us to mess with though and yes, the free drinks! Could never be happier when I get to save on some drinks =)
The tour lasted almost 1 hour and I was back at Monash then.
