If you are in Penang and you are a subscriber to Streamyx and you are fed-up with the not infrequent occasions when Streamyx is down or when the Streamyx speed is abysmally slow, then you are lucky if you can subscribe to PenangFON's fiber optic network broadband internet which offers 2 mbps unlimited broadband internet access at only RM60 per month. I have just been given a PenangFON flyer which states that their broadband internet access residential package offers:
1. Unlimited Internet Access
2. 2 Mbps Download/Upload
3. No modem required for ETTH
4. No additional phone line required
5. Reliable Always-On Connection.
6. Scalable from 2 Mbps to 1 GB (1000 Mbps) and Ready for Upgrade.
The only drawback is that this Internet Broadband Service is available to certain condominium and office blocks only at present. When I rang up PenangFON (Tel. No. 04-2274521) the gentleman who answered the phone told me that the company was planning to cover the whole of the State of Penang within 2 to 3 months. If the Company can fulfil its promises, you can imagine the number of people in Penang who will make the switch from Streamyx. For more information visit www.PenangFON.com. I would be glad to hear from anybody who is already using this service.
