I can’t hold it any longer, although i already said i don’t want to post something like this again, but it seems the biggest corruptor in Indonesia owned by the biggest telecommunication company called Telkom and the world slowest ADSL access service called Speedy don’t care or even listen to their customer !!! And this time i’m not going to say anything good against them, i’ll tell you everything about the world first ADSL access with limited bandwidth that gives you the speed of Dial Up Connection with the price of an Unlimited 2 Mbps connection or more at other country !!! $75 – $80 / month including 10% tax
Okay here’s the truth about Speedy ADSL Service from Telkom :
Speedy access speed : 384 Kbps Download and 64 Kbps Upload
Yeah like a dream come true, if it’s truly 384 kbps download, how come the access speed at work time (09:00 AM – 06:00 PM) gives you a TIMEOUT message or LONG WAITING TIME when you’re trying to access server outside Indonesia. Even to a high speed server such as Yahoo, Microsoft / MSN, and Google. Beside when downloading a single file (500 kb) .. at work time the fastest speed you can get is 7.1 Kbps and that means it’s not far from standard dial up connection …
They say check your Noise Margin, your router configuration, and your Firewall blocking access or slowing down your access
Hell yeah, if my telephone line is bad, how come when i access website after work time, there’s no problem at all .. ??? beside when i try to access server in my own country at work time, i can access it without problem
Check your computer for virus and other malware
I never heard about virus slowing your access to website even if they’re trying to DDOS a site or sending unlimited packet ?
They say they’re going to reduce their price
Hm … i think i’ve heard this words before two months ago .. and they’re saying they’ll reduce speedy price at October .. but untill now .. i didn’t see Speedy price reduced. By the way, i also heard that Telkom get lots of profit recently (62%) ?
750 MB / month bandwidth for $30 – $40 and 2GB bandwidth for $75–$80 ?
Completely sucks, because for that high price you can get an incredible speed at other country, beside without bandwidth limitation. But i can tolerate that as long as i can get the true ADSL speed at work time but the truth is even if you already pay for that incredible price, you’ll only get a Dial Up Speed at work time ..
And the conclusion is, if there’s other ISP in your area simply use them instead of Speedy, because it’s not worth using the ADSL Service from Telkom, they completely sucks and below average .. they only think about profit … profit … and profit .. without thinking of their customer. Although i know that if you’re going to do business you’ll have to make profit .. but ?! making customer suffer ?! It’s not in my dictionary.
