How broadband get away with lousy services

I have been having unstable Internet from Maxis home fibre broadband for a month now, since the day CMCO started, the connection is very very unstable. It’s also the time everyone in the house needs the Internet.

Every time a report has been filed, the connect came back. Then technician called, but it’s resolve within second as I did not have the issue on the time technician calls.

Such a procedure just keeps looping, and the issue is always there and I have to stick with such an issue.

Maxis have done their job by calling me, the issue resolved by itself, MCMC cannot do anything, and I will have to stick with such Internet.

This happens to all broadband in Malaysia. They can give you the lousiest service they can as long as they tied you up with their contract. You can’t get to them, even MCMC also can’t get them, this is the grey area.

Instead of keep promising the nation that the government going to speed up the broadband, it would be better the government promise no-contract base when subscribing the service, this way it opens up a more competitive market.

Keep it 3 years maximum

If you’re planning to use WordPress or already using WordPress as your website, please make sure to update it every 3 years at the maximum.


WordPress always support backward compatibilities, but there is a limit to where it will support.

If your website has been there for 3 years without any update, your website is not that important. Either use a simple HTML website or just forget about having a website.

Funny how website suddenly becomes some important aspect of one business after social media websites.

Movement control necessity

So the MCO (or CMCO or whatever it is) is back again. Although not as tightly control as before. When this happen one necessity is the Internet.

Literally everything is Internet connected. Work, entertainment, study and purchasing.

This is the speed I got once the movement control started. I need to work so I need Internet, our home entertainment is mostly from Internet, and kid is now having virtual classes. Basically the time we need Internet the most.

I subscribed for 100mbps, this is the speed I get instead. I really wonder how all the statistic done, with Maxis on top nonetheless.

People are dick

That’s right, people are dicks. Which lend me to choose my current lifestyle and keep social interaction to a minimum.


It’s not like I’m keeping myself caged though, I just prefer to silently look at the scene instead of being in the scene.

You see, I do have some WhatsApp group, and some investment-related one. It taught me more than I should know, and now I know why my boy is happy all the time.

First of all, investors (or some would say boss or rich people) are dicks. At such a time instead of making sure everyone can stays afloat, their mind are more into taking the most they can. Property, for example, there are some market prices as we all. At this kind of time, they joined together and making sure they can jack up the price instead of slow down their greed.

Next time when you start saying your boss this and that and how stingy they are, remember that one day, you might be the one who squeezing some stranger out for your own value just like your boss did.

Maybe it’s a message

The large corporates or services that get the most users usually have the most dissatisfied users.

Internet speed

Internet for example. I paid for 100mbps, called for support and get the Internet back on. However, there is this little catch – frequent disconnection and unstable connection. It doesn’t matter which ISP I sign up with, they all have these exact issues. I can’t do anything.

macOS for example. I was told my computer is well equipped with what I do (Email and YouTube or so-called Browsing), now I got a very lagging laptop after 3 years of uses. I can’t do anything.

What I can do is to accept the fact that big corporations will keep doing what they do best – Have you upgrade. There must be some messages within these issues in my life.
