As much as I spend my hours in front of the computer most of the time. It’s my job. I also want to be very agile and mobile wherever I am. Even, while I’m in the loo!
But I’m stuck in a situation where no plans fit me even if I went out to buy myself the 3G phone I wanted. 🙁
And honestly, I only prefer 2 telcos in Malaysia. Either the green spring or the yellow man. The blue or purple dude can stay away for now.
Here’s my beef with data plans right now.
The green spring will charge you for every additional data you overuse and being the connectivity addict I am, I’m pretty sure I’ll be overcharged. Plus, it doesn’t tell me what’s the data limit for the specific plan. *slaps forehead*
The yellow man on the other hand has a great unlimited and only throttles me option. Though my own comparison shown me they’ll hurt you most if you tend to communicate via SMS a lot.
However, both fall into the same bowl of dilemma I face. I don’t want to commit to a phone call bill and a data plan. I’d like to have only 1 thing to think about; phone bill. You can split the data and calls in my bill, but don’t tell me:
Danny, you’ve to pay $ amount for your calls and $ amount on top for your data plan.
I wish I had a telco which told me:
Danny, if you got $ plan. It’ll fit within your monthly budget. The call and data is consolidated into this plan. But do note, there’s a limited 500MB per month cap and we’d throttle you otherwise.
See, simple. Sigh. Now all I can do is either wait for my ideal telco or work my back side to earn more. LOL!
