Netsurfing with Mobily Connect (7.2 mbps)

Written by | Internet, Saudi Arabia

Just got a Mobily Connect USB as a backup connection. This will be handy when I’m on the road or during that long trip to Al Khobar. According to the box you can have a connection speed up to 7.2 mbps, though I’m not sure if I can really get the 7.2 mbps connection speed.

To check what connection speed that I will get with the Mobily Connection, I immediately tested the connection speed and here’s what I got.

2Wire.Com

Of course benchmark is different from real-world test, a 64 MB file that I usually takes me 40 to 45 mins to download, while connected to Mobily Connection will only take me 15 to 17 minutes.

The Mobily Connect have the 5 GB data cap and the unlimited plan. I got the 5 GB data plan for SR 150.00 and 100 every month while the unlimited is Sr 425.00 for the initial payment. The Mobily Connect is dubbed by Mobily as 3.5G.

The Mobily Connect is perfect if you’re always on the move and being connected is important to you, plus the Mobily Rep also told me that the Mobily Connect will work anywhere in the Kingdom, even in the middle of the desert.
