    WeBe will be a P1 rebrand, but its highly anticipated mobile plans won't be revealed anytime soon

    Some of you may have heard of the hype from WeBe recent rumors about its groundbreaking mobile telco plans which we earlier guessed to be revealed today. Unfortunately, the long-awaited conference is just about WeBe revealing itself as a rebrand of P1, and not much talk about WeBe itself as a mobile telco. But from the conference we did receive a "not fixed date" for a possible WeBe telco launch, which could probably happen at the end of this year.

  • Rumours: WeBe 20GB data and voice plan from RM8/month or Unlimited everything plan for RM80/month

    Rumours: WeBe 20GB data and voice plan from RM8/month or Unlimited everything plan for RM80/month

    It seems that the signed agreements between Celcom, P1 and TM back in January are showing results. This collaboration may probably end up turning WeBe into a new mobile operator. Originally WeBe was just a community site for anyone to post a project that they want to have happened, then with enough WeBe community to back it, to then start receiving funds for their project.

    From the leaked photos surfacing from popular local blogs and websites, it seems that WeBe will be offering 20GB of data, 1000 talk time minutes, and 1000 SMS for RM8/month. Best of all their unlimited plan will only cost RM80/month for unlimited 4g internet, unlimited SMS and unlimited phone calls.

  • Frequency Interference - How to Retune your Wireless AV device

    Frequency Interference - How to Retune your Wireless AV device

    Our previous explorations in Frequency Interference have clearly shown that supposed 2.4GHz devices like Wireless AV transmitters are actually interfering with the 2.3GHz spectrum assigned to telcos like P1. A closer look at the manual reveals that this isn't the manufacturer's fault as they clearly state that you should retune the settings for said devices. As such, it becomes the users full responsibility if SKMM enforcement should come knocking with up to RM500000 fees or 5 years imprisonment. However, all is not lost as you can retune your Wireless AV device quite easily. Check out how to do so via the video in this article.

  • Frequency Interference - Do non-standard Wireless devices really affect P1 services?

    Frequency Interference - Do non-standard Wireless devices really affect P1 services?

    As the number of wireless devices continues to grow in Malaysia, telcos like P1 are finding more and more such devices interfering with the 2.3GHz spectrum assigned to them. While nearly all of these devices claim that they run on the higher 2.4GHz band, when set to default some of these wireless devices are actually using the 2.3GHz band to transmit data, causing frequency interference to connectivity.  To see if these devices actually do affect these services we've carried out testing of a Wireless AV transmitting device with a P1 DX230 Home modem. Utilizing an ASUS ZenPad 8.0 Z380KL tablet to connect via speedtest.net and YouTube, we checked for frequency interference in the video in this article.

    Frequency Interference – Your own devices may be jeopardizing your Internet Connection

    Wireless Broadband Internet has come a long way here in Malaysia and Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd or P1 has been a major mover and provider of wireless broadband since 2008. Many Malaysians were among the first to enjoy the latest Wireless Technology or WiMAX when the regulatory Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) awarded the 2.3GHz spectrum to 4 Internet Service Providers in 2007, which included P1.  hundreds of thousands of Malaysians now use P1 services for their Home and Mobile Internet needs as we move forward to a nation that is continuously updating their Facebook and other social media while watching YouTube videos.
