Mobily’s 4G Connect

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:

via Wifi:

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.

    Dears, I am one of a victim of Mobily having 6Mbps but
    always getting only 512Kbps, I make lot off research on Mobily LTE4G broadband
    at home and I reached a conclusion that, it’s not useful for those who are
    gamer, HD video downloader, watching HD videos, or big file downloading because
    Mobily saying that it is UL (unlimited) but they are liar they have FUP (fair
    uses policy) you can get 1Mbps to 6Mbps but there is no difference except of
    fast browsing which sometimes worst….I think it’s a backlog of Mobily because
    we are living in cloud computing, online file sharing 60” LED TV and 3D etc.
    it’s a period of TB/GB not KB or MB.

    Mobily claiming of 4th Generation, but supplying 1st
    Generation…..what a cheat…

      I thought I was alone, everytime I download something they would lower my speed as if I’m not allowed to download over 100MBs an hour and they’d ‘punish’ me by lowering my speed from 2 Mbps to only freaking 0.2
