I still remember the event when P1 first launched their Wimax service in the country. Since 2 years ago, I’ve made some great friends in P1 and I even got the chance to review the Lenovo Ideapad V360 Wimax laptop. And yesterday, I was invited to attend the launch event to cover the P1 One Plan broadband bundle which was hosted at the P1 paddock – customer service hub.
I bumped into Nuffies; Rachel and Dustryhawk, when I got there. There were more bloggers whom I wasn’t familiar with but I guessed so much, they were the Nuffnang bloggers. Unfortunately, I ain’t one of the A-list bloggers so I was invited personally by P1 instead.
Speeches and Games
The gist of the P1 One Plan is it’s a 2-in-1 broadband bundle consisting of the P1 4G modem with WiFi AND the slick P1 4G super wiggy – portable modem.
This plan came about primarily because after P1 did a consumer study on the Malaysian broadband behaviour, they found only 7% of portable modem users correctly utilized their device. Yes, I went what the fack too. And what was even more surprising, apparently 45% of subscribers use their portable modems exclusively at home too.
Now, for the non-techies, here’s what Michael Lai (P1 CEO) wants you to realize.
…portable modem is not optimized for indoor usage.
Yes, it’s a fact, size does matter. Especially, the antenna of the device.
So, what does the P1 One Plan broadband bundle prices look like? Have a gander.
Once all speeches by Michael and Ikhwan was done and the questions and answers session finished, P1 arranged mini games for us bloggers. There was a quick puzzle game which me and another blogger won a prize, what looks to be a laptop sleeve. Then, a final game of tossing balls into a pail was played.
By the end of the speeches, I was already hungry. So the moment we were given the chance to feast, I dived right into the grub.
I gobbled 4 slices of already cold pizza and I don’t think it was meant to be our dinner. Oh well, at least I left without an empty stomach.
