Starhub MaxMobile SurfLite Review
Monday after work, I finally got myself a Starhub MaxMobile SurfLite. It is the mobile Internet from Starhub that comes in a USB stick. Cool, huh!

It was actually a competition between Singtel, Starhub and M1. I chose Starhub because aside from Unlimited Bundled Data, it is just the same price with M1. Between M1 and Starhub, I think Starhub is far better than M1. Well, Singtel only offers until 50GB data plan and it is quite expensive than Starhub and M1.

Now the testing portion. I tried it the instant I reached home. It is a plug and play USB so the installation was breezy. My plan by way is 27.10 SGD, which is already 30% off monthly. The download speed is 2 Mbps and the upload speed is up to 512 Kbps. The connection was just okay and based on the Statistics of the Mobile Broadband Modem it reached the download speed of 1.4 Mbps and upload speed of 400 Kbps. I have a queue of download so I just left it until the next morning. The next morning, I was shocked and amazed that the download and upload speed was way over ceiling. To be exact the download speed reached more than 2 Mbps and upload speed reached more than 500 Kbps. Very cool!

It's just awful that my contract is until 24 months.
