About 2 months ago, I decided to cancel my TM Wifi package (but retain my home land line) to try out Maxis Home Wifi.
Since the cancellation, I was worried when I received the TM bill relating to the house phone only, because of a line rental charge which seemed to suggest Rm1 a day! Today, I received the latest bill which excludes charge for 'tambahan setiap 0.5 km' which I presume relates to the line rental charge before. It would be presumptuous of me to think someone in TM read my blog post and decided to waive that. But whatever the reason, it is now reasonable for me to continue having the land line. I was prepared to negotiate for this had I been charged more, with the 'threat' of cancelling TM service altogether.
Meanwhile, for the past week, I was using Maxis under their 'throttling' service when my monthly quota plus my top-up of Rm30 were used up. Each time I switched on my notebook, I had to reply to a request for top-up, either from Maxis.com.my or Mylaunchpad. Well, I had to go through the experience before I can write about the experience. It is also a chance for me to wean myself off internet, with my self-imposed budget limit for a month.
