… it’s so fast that old hard disk couldn’t write to disk fast enough (that’s why you need to upgrade your hard disk soon, heh)

When 1TB Hard Disk is not enough anymore

I was at Singapore for business trip 2 weeks ago, I bought 1TB SSD hard disk because my latest laptop only has 128GB (lousy computer), so external hard disk is a must.

I do speedtest at my hotel and it was downloading 5MB/sec, which is approximately 15mbps speed I guess? I queue up my 100GB of downloads… and it completed the tasks in 4 hours plus.

WHOA. 1TB macam not enough any more.

Here comes the connection that makes this possible… “4G LTE”

DiGi 4G LTE launch

So, today is the official launch of DiGi 4G at Kota Kinabalu and I was invited to cover this event. (Who knows they give out iPhone 6 for bloggers who cover their event… I took the chance lah)

How fast is 4G LTE?

I did a quick Google search for you.

4G LTE wireless broadband is 10 times faster than 3G—able to handle download speeds between 5 and 12 Mbps(Megabits per second) and upload speeds between 2 and 5 Mbps, with peak download speeds approaching 50 Mbps. Cable speeds vary, but 4 to 12 Mbps are common.

DiGi CEO live on 4G connection

Look! Inilah CEO dari DiGi Malaysia

DiGi CEO is live on Facetime, and congratulating the official launch of 4G LTE at Kota Kinabalu. I was secretly hoping the connection will fail.. it would have created a better buzz for DiGi me thinks. Hehe.

What’s NOT GOOD about 4G LTE?

Another thing about 4G… the quota is always the biggest complaint because they offer only 6GB. My friend at Singapore has been using 4G for quite some time, and he says quota is big problem because whenever you load Youtube videos, the first few seconds it loads up the entire video and you only wanted to watch first few seconds to see what’s the video about. When you press “stop”, your quote gone 200mb.

Didn’t know loading too fast always causes problem. #firstworldproblem
