    Actually, I lately have had not much problems using M1 mobile BB in Clementi.

    I used it a few days ago as my Starhub broadband at home was running slow (perhaps someone in my flat was downloading some big files??)

    I also have ok experience in the city (peninsula area)........

    Sorry but the Samsung Z800 works on Macs. But they have to be running 10.5 (Leopard) at least.

    Yup.. you can do that if you don't have an existing contract for your Maxonline.

    dont waste your time with m1 mobile broadband...

    speed is so slow tested it out many times with www.speedtest.net and all i get is 580kbps instead of the propsed 1800 which they "upgraded" t 2000. its nly 1/4 speed. even so, its darn slow in loading pages and worst.. frequent disconnections. their home broadband however is using starhub's cable so its better BUT NOT FOR MOBILE broadband.


    go singtel or starhub instead

    I took up M1 BB recently. Took the 2Mbps plan as the price just nice.

    I take up this plan is for my secondary usage as I got SNBB at hm already. I use this for my laptop.

    I got problem having the device to work when I plug in a usb hub. I then figure out, maybe due to lack of power supply to the hub. With power supply added, the modem still dont function when plug in the usb port of the laptop (together with the hub). I think again, why not try to insert the modem into the hub too (together with mouse n keyboard).

    Wow! It's work! So happy. For me, normal surfing is ok, compare to dialing up using my N95, seem like a bit faster. On top of that, no worry of exceeding the data. Now I using the M1BB mostly for playing online game on my laptop. Work fine, no complain from me so far....
    Only Sony device mostly, haha!

    In the end, I got rid of the service. Didn't make the minimum 6 months requirement but M1 did not make me pay a penalty for it.
    How did you get them to waiver the penalty?
    How did you cancel it and which branch did you go to?
    I am on a 2-year contract and I have about 1 more year to go and I don't need it anymore but if I were to cancel and have to pay the $300+ penalty, it is not worth it to cancel.

    Now I have a problem.
    I wanna terminate my M1 broadband but they will make me pay a penalty of $300+ as stated in the contract.
    I am not using it anymore. If I don't terminate, I will still have to pay $25+ x 12 which is around the same cost as termination fee too.
    So... I am stuck in the middle. Terminate or don't terminate, I still have to pay $300+.
    But yet, I'm not using it anymore... so feeling buay kam wan to pay.
    Do you know, what will they do if you just don't pay your bills?

    If u already got a maxonline plan without contract, call starhub to recontract with a "plus" plan. Eg. Maxonline Express "Plus". You'll get a mobile BB dongle and simcard for free without any additional charges in your monthly bills. Totally free except that it ties you to a 1 year contract. Quite worth it esp if you are using MOL all the way. Even though its a 1 or 2 mbps plan, I connect at 7.2mbps.

    The mobile bb for Starhub included with Maxonline is good. I got much faster speeds opposed to that from Singnet mobile bb.

    Don't ever go for M1 Mobile BB. Reading from other experiences here, mine seems to be not the only few.

    l have complained to M1 for almost a year and they still can't resolve my connection problem. Even changed a new modem. My line kept disconnected and is running very slow. Imagine the frustration of connecting every 10-15 mins...sometimes every 5 mins. l understand that it is a base station issue which l think M1 does nothing about it to enhance it even though they promised to do something about it. Eventually, they offered to terminate my contract without penalty which l am going to do so. Am planning to go back to my previous Singtel BB which l have no such problems at all.

    i have tried all 3 providers. M1 always has network problems. That was about a year back when I cancelled it and I actually saw few guys cancelling M1 and walked straight to singtel at bugis to apply new contract
