Not sure if you call it an upgrade, since the connection speed that I got is the same as the connection speed of Mobily Broadband@Home, which is 2 Mmps package. I’ve been wanting to switch to Mobily 4G Connection, since the my Mobily Broadband@Home that I’m using is almost 3 years old and frankly speaking there are times that I think the modem/router would just breakdown. So all it took for me to switch to 4G Connect is a trip to Mobily’s Tech Support and telling me that router is no longer receiving or picking up any IP Address.
Unlike the Mobily Broadband@Home that uses WiMax, the 4G Connect uses LTE 4G technology, so you’ll get a 4G capable SIM card together with the 4G Router. The rep at the Mobily’s Office said that the 4G connection is much better than the 3 year old Mobily Broadband@Home plus they currently have a promo where you get 3 free months if you subscribe for 3 months, free 6 months for a 6 month subscription and a whole year if you subscribe for a whole year. Not bad right?!
If 2Mbps is not fast enough for you, you can upgrade to 4 Mbps or the 6 Mbps, of course the faster the connection speed the most $$$ you need to shell-out.
Here’s the complete subscription packages:
Regarding which service is better, then just check the speed test that made with Mobily’s 4G Connect, here’s the speed that I made for the Mobily 4G using Ethernet port:
Package wise the 4G Connection is much better, since you get free months if you subscribe for 3 months of more but comparing the speed test, the Broadband@Home is much better than the 4G Connect. Specially when connecting via WiFi, there’s a different of 0.41 mbps on the download and 0.21 mbps for the upstream. The problem now is even if I want to continue using Broadband@Home, Mobily appears to be phasing out the WiMax Connection (Broadband@Home) and switching customers to 4G Connect.
