Last Monday I spent almost the whole day testing the speed of Maxis Wireless Broadband at more than 40 locations throughout the whole island of Penang, Malaysia. I wanted to find out what’s the speed of Maxis Wireless Broadband because I’ll be using it when I’m out of the home or office.

Maxis claimed that they have the widest network coverage so I purposely went up the hill, to the seaside, highways and even some shopping malls. Besides, Penang is famous for its tourist attractions therefore I chose to test the speed at these locations. Below is the Google Maps I created showing all the places and speeds I recorded :-

All speed tests were conducted using the Speed Test app developed by speedtest.net in Samsung Galaxy S and the mobile phone was connected to Maxis WiFi Modem for data connection. 2 servers were selected for the speed tests, initially was Kuala Lumpur server but it went down in the afternoon so I switched to the one in Singapore. Locations with an asterisk (*) showing in the table below are the speed tests using Singapore server.

The table below listing all the locations, the download speeds, time and dates of the speed tests :-

    Never like Maxis. It used to be so slow at my place. Does it come with download cap?

    Hey Freddie, you gotta give them a try. Their wireless broadband system had been upgraded and improved recently.

    No download or upload cap when you are using within the data plan quota.
