The Fastest Mobile Network In Malaysia
On 25th December 2015, Ookla, global leader in broadband speed testing and web-based network diagnostic applications, has announced that U Mobile has the fastest mobile network in Malaysia. So I put the speed on the test, since not all places have 4G network ( A good reason not to use 4G since both my 4G smartphone screen Broke), using my cheap smart phone MIVO which only support 3G band. The result:
The speed result with only 3G coverage at Johor Bahru using KL server

54 ping considered great ping for online gaming. The average speed between 5 Mbps - 7 Mbps allows you to watch YouTube in HD without buffer or lag. Upload speed is fairly good and normally not a big consideration for choosing mobile internet plan.

The Downside
The main disadvantages with Umobile is the internet 3G and 4G coverage.  It is hard to get a good signal especially if you live in rural areas.

Peak and Off-Peak Internet Performance
So far I didn't have any problem with the connection during especially during peak hours.
Performance at Capped Speed
If you already used up all 8GB monthly quota, don't worry about using whatapps or  browsing. You might notice slower load of webpage but at 0.7Mbps it still good for light usage.

To Wrap it Up
I've been using various Postpaid and Internet Plan since 2003, P1, YES, Celcom, and Maxis. So far the main feature I want to see is a Cheaper and Reasonable Plan. Why? current website and apps not a plain HTML anymore, every webpage or apps contain video and picture, and some of them are High Res Pic or Video. With 1GB data ( I remember those day, 1GB for RM50) I can barely save it for 2-3 days. If you ask me which telco I will choose if Umobile is not available, Celcom of course, wider coverage, no contract and a good carry foward unused Internet Quota feature.
