UniFi - Is It Worth Subscribing?

The answer lies to the individuals. For me it is nor worth. At RM 149 for 5Mbps it is unaffordable considering todays cost of living.

UniFi comes with:

  • Hi Speed Broadband
  • IPTV
  • Free Voice call
When I want to subscribe to Broadband, Yes, I need the high speed but is it confirmed that as a consumer I can get the speed that I wanted? Wimax was promised to change the surfing lifestyle of internet user with higher speed and one company has the gut to tell us that they provide the highest speed on the cyberhighway. However when I subscribed, I only get shitty speed and not much better than an ordinary dial up and wired internet connection. Service provider will always hide behind the 'at best effort' tagline to cover their weaknesses and unability to provide that is promised. 

What is IPTV service actually? Will it be providing the same channel as what is provided by ASTRO? If so then why waste more money when ASTRO is already too high a cost for the consumer to pay. I think IPTV is not a necessity to be bundled with the UniFi and consumers are forced to subscribe to services that they don't need. Why must subscribers subsidise TM for the IPTV subscription that they linked to. Malaysians have more than enough time being glued to the 'idiot box' and then again to the desktops then again with Blackberrys on the streets, we are losing our social life to technologies. So, I don't need the IPTV service.

UniFi also comes with Free voice calls. It is really basic needs today. Everybody need to make voice calls either for social relationship and business etc. Above all it is free. Now do I have to carry my desktop or laptop around so that I can make free voice calls?. It is much better to carry my mobile phone for voice calls.  I am not going to talk all day after all.  Of course this statement make me look stupid. Hahahaha........

With UniFi and NBI what has the consumer to gain after all.

For me, I don't think unifi worth it. Even the VIP20 have limited bandwidth. in the middle of the month I think the bandwidth going to exceed resulting slow speed of internet.

and that VIP5, I think a week of watching youtube videos... *you can think what happen
