I just found out to my disgust (after talking to a TM UniFi techie) that I cannot use any other router for the TM UniFi high-speed broadband service other than the D-Link router that is supplied in the package I signed up for. This is because of a “special configuration” dictate. And this is not acceptable!
As it is, Telekom Malaysia is already a monopoly and suspicion is already causing my brain to work overtime. And now that I have also been stung with this latest D-Link only router policy where I either have to “take it or leave it” my head is now running riot with even more suspicions with this company!
First of all, I would not have decided to junk the D-Link router supplied if everything was hunky-dory. This brand really sucks. I have had so much ‘signal issue’ with this D-Link router it’s not funny and I am beginning to wonder whether TM did it’s due diligence by properly testing it for UniFi high-speed use. Also, whoever at TM UniFi finally made the decision to exclusively assign this brand for its premium broadband service should have his/her head examined and taken to task, for the unit is an utter lemon! (As the British are known to call something that is unusually substandard and useless.) (more…)
