P1 One Plan Broadband Bundle

I still remember the event whenย P1 first launched their Wimax serviceย 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. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Speeches and Games

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. ๐Ÿ˜€

P1 Super Wiggy Launch Event at Frames, Sunway Pyramid

When P1 unleashed their 1st Wiggy to Malaysia, I was one of the initial testers of the device. Me and some other bloggers brought it nearly everywhere, reporting on its coverage and signal strength as well as unbelievable speeds in certain spots – up to 8Mbps.

On Monday, I was invited for the launch of P1’s new Super Wiggy held at Frames in Sunway Pyramid. It was very cozy and I’d say it was just nice to cater the bloggers who attended. Not to mention, I had really great fun catching up with old friends and taking photos with them.

Frames indeed

And pictured above with Saimatkong, is the Super Wiggy. Which comes with a flip-stand and also a suction for you to stick it directly onto your laptop! 0.0

Plus, the P1 team added a nice touch to this event. They got IKEA frames to insert printed photos taken of us during the event. Me and Saimatkong were wondering if it was for decoration but indeed, it was for us to take home! ๐Ÿ˜€

It was a superhero themed event but it seemed I was the only person who donned a Superman t-shirt. I guess someone misplaced Batman’s light and there wasn’t booze to get a Joker among bloggers. Nevertheless, P1 recruited their own heroes.

Followed after the superheroes were presentations by Noora and Jeck. The presentation by Noora was a general understanding of P1’s Wiggy advancement and the future to come; 4G. Then Jeck came on to demonstrate the benefits of 4G, what could we expect out of it – like using your iPad as a mobile phone, and P1’s upcoming MiFi (mobile wireless router) device.

Heroes and Presenters

By the end of the presentations, bloggers were as hungry as horses – as usual. And as much as we love events, we’d always wish to have the food first or during the event – not after. LOL!

Great food with great company

I’ve not eaten at Frames before but the food was interesting and really tasteful. The serving you see in the photo was only the starter and Frames allowed us to choose 1 of 4 different mains that night. Awesome! While I had the chicken, other mains like; pasta, fish and burger, looked really mouth watering.

And with great company, comes the fun-ner personality of bloggers. Camwhores! Just like the horny Vernieman up there. LOL!

Oh, by the way, the P1 team knows how to show their fun-ner side too.

I’ve always enjoyed the P1 events and if they keep coming out with ideas like the frame, I’m pretty sure we’ll have more camwhores bloggers attending these events.

As for the Super Wiggy report, I’ll probably write more about it in Websites Made Simple. ๐Ÿ™‚
