Voice on Lack of Internet Quality Services

Finally the locals are now complaining the Telbru internet service again on Brudirect last month. This has been going on for almost every year and we see nothing change. No matter what you say, you have only one internet service provider in Brunei. Take it or just switch to 3G. I don’t really want to consider B.Mobile and DST Group as an internet servicer provide because their 3G internet speed performance are different which is much more unstable compare to fixed line and it has to depending on location. Don’t tell me shit about 3G is better compare to fixed line because I have tested both of them myself (USB, router etc) and it really sucks you don’t actually get what it advertises on the paper. At least Telbru is better. Once you see your internet speed is not what you get, you can complain. But B.Mobile and DST, No.

I tested in many places and my customers always complain it to me this 3G is worst than 56k modem everyday at night and days. You see, I get blame even I am not the one supplying the 3G stuff and thanks to DST for the services I have to bring it up and down for them to test. The DST staffs fail to come over personally to explained why the signal are bad even my client install external antenna for Ericsson W21 3G router to improve the coverage doesn’t seems to help when they get full signal bar all days. I always file complains on the phone monthly back then and telling me they have to go on the site to check out themselves. Did they come? No.

The only good thing about 3G are just can be use anywhere and also if the Telbru internet went down completely like last year, 3G is another best option to get online. I’m sure anyone has different opinions or disagrees about what I said. But this is my personal experience. The most complains I heard is DST about the internet and some hardware (3G USB dongle I heard) issue. For B.Mobile, I very unlikely heard much complain because many of my friends are happy with their 3G internet services.

Back to Telbru life. I did somehow received information that we, value surf users getting a free upgrade to super or premium surf by this year. If this is true, I hope Telbru can clean up their bad reputation and offer it to us. No official words yet from them, but it will normally start the upgrade in the capital first, as always. But the internet traffic last month is really bad and I haven’t file any complains yet because my internet speed is below 418kbps I last check few days ago. Hate this when it happen. It sucks!

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.
