Telbru says they made 40% cheaper rate for all. You know what? I call that bullshit. I don’t see how much cheaper it going to cost us rather I find hard to believe they would even go as far after businesses putting together with home into same boat with quota limit. The fuck with home plans starting price BND199.00 for unlimited quota is entirely absurd.
Their intention is so clear targeting the heavy usage customers and just wants more money. This is not about cost saving from the start but to control usage. The disappointment looking at my 3.5Mbps plan only have 150GB quota limit is sad. I don’t even see these numbers are enough to last two weeks running Youtube streaming, normal downloads, sync data and Steam games for me. If I include torrent, it guarantees less than a week.
This is really headache for me right now as well when I am working as IT Technician who need to lookout for downloads for the latest software (especially Microsoft) and virus definition updates (weekly). My usage normally are quite high so I have no choice but to minimize these download at home starting on March. Just hope my company get the unlimited quota so I can have no worry to download updating the software.
I do feel Telbru should have asked us for a survey. I doubt they even don’t bother in the first place and just simply move forward the plan since they are the only internet service provider in Brunei. So they can do whatever they want. I kinda hate their response argument too in the Facebook the information they provided are basically just assumptions, nothing more. While they mention you won’t get disconnect or any extra charges after using up the quota, you will instead getting bandwidth throttling by 20%. What they show in their graph doesn’t even look like 20% a bit. 80% more likely to say. Again, nothing we can do much about it and just suck it up moving on.
