P1 Wimax @ Penang, it’s actually WiMin only…

I got very excited when P1 announced recently that they will be launching Wimax in Penang.  And yes, true enough, it happened. Whooo! We have Wimax in Penang now… but wait… something is not right and allow me to explain why…

I tried checking for coverage at my residence area and i was very disappointed when i found there’s no Wimax at the area where i’m staying at right now. WTF? You launched a service, superb publicity and marketing campaign, and then you tell a customer, ‘Sorry la, but your area tarak coverage?’. Fuuyoh, if that’s the case, you might as well don’t launch the service first!

You see how big the green spot is, 10% out of total Penang area?

You know, i visited Penang’s PC Fair today and basically, you can see a big bunch of sales people from different internet service providers, Steamyx, Maxis, Celcom and P1 la. And of course i have a little bit of fun meeting with the P1 sales ppl when they asked me to subscribe the service.

P1 sales: Excuse me sir, are you interested in getting P1 Wimax? We have up to 10Mbps, you can try it at our demo booth.

Me: Really? Wow, cool! Yes yes, i wanna try.

P1 sales: You see, youtube streaming, no problem. Very fast.

Me: Ok, no problem, how much is the package?

Sales rep explain this and that, package plan, rates, startup cost etc…

Me: Ok la, sounds good so how ar? My area can get Wimax or not?

P1 sales: Well, let me know your area and i can help you check.

Me: Ok, try check xxx area and see. That’s my place.

P1 sales: I’m sorry sir but your area is not under Wimax coverage. Maybe you can leave us your contact number and we will let you know once there is coverage?

Me: Eerrr, like that ar, no need la. Next time only i subscribe…

*smiling, grinning while walking away…


Who ask you to provide WiMin service only? So limited coverage? Don’t blame me ya! 😛
