Unbelievable New Monthly Rates is Bullshit

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.

Brunet SMTP Server Under Global Blacklist?

Based on my finding, yes it is. I already started noticing this issue starting last year December when my users starting to complain about their email messages not reaching several existing contacts. Slowly things get even uglier between February and March, the messages would deliver into junk in Outlook automatically. The 3rd party email like Gmail services follow, sending them into SPAM folder. Even the Barracuda Spam Firewall sees as threat and start rejecting. As far I know, my company experiences the worst when the email messages almost completely go AWOL in 3rd week last month. The 4th week, the messages all stuck in the queue for unknown reason and getting relay messages. We found out the local domain name suddenly no longer working and tried using smtp.brunet.bn as temporary solution. It didn’t work either. In the end, we had to convince the management to purchase 3rd party SMTP service to get the whole thing running. It’s not like we did not investigate the physical server, M…

Guide on Registering Brunei Citizenship Examination (Update#1)

I never thought registering Brunei Citizenship examination are really fucking inconvenienced. Worst, I don't see blogger write about it either in the web search telling us how and what to bring. So to make this easy, I decided to write the guide for my future reference and hopefully able to help you fellow PR. Avoid Waste of TimeFirst of all, people may told you to register in the capital usually way faster. It's true but my question is, do you really need to be that hurry? Bahasa Brunei are not easy to learned (even most local Malay) and remembering every details of this country takes lots of effort studying. Unless you already a good confidence in speaking and writing, you may go ahead. Still, if you live in Belait or Tutong or even Temburong district. My suggestion go for the nearest and shortest route to the immigration building for registration. The reason I recommend that way are nobody knows when the law and rules will change every years in Brunei (as well announced b…

Brunei Has a Porno Celebrity?

That was really unexpected information found in Wikipedia and surprise to know we have a porno celebrity in our country. Her name is Jayna Oso, was born in Brunei and raised at Hawaii according to the Wiki. She is really quite popular in the states and not to mention hardcore porn star.“This Photo belong to Shiroi Kaze”I don’t really know if that is true after I decided to look through her profile in the official porn site. It somehow didn’t state that she was from Brunei instead they only mention about Malaysia. I think this might be a mistake or something and probably her mother was Malaysian. It just my guess and only she herself know the answer. Well, if you want to dug deeper, you might want to visit her My Space and drop her a question.
