Why is Metfone so slow during evenings and ...
« on: April 21, 2014, 09:38:59 AM »
Hi. I have been using Metfone for my mobile phone, and for the Internet for almost five years.

At the moment I stay at a complex with Metfone 4 mg WiFi. Normally its working fine, but very often it let me down between 6 PM and 10.00 PM. And this morning again.

I get the info: Your Internet is not connected, try again. It is connected, and after two, three, og five attemps it works again, until next time. The Landlord is excellent, and he call Metfone now and then. But nothing really happen regards improving the supply.

I get a part of my income from working with the Internet, so its important that it works.

Whats wrong, do you thing, with the installation. Several other tennants complain about the same.

Wich Internet provider is in general considered as the best and most relaiable supplier in SHV?

Have a nice day, with or with out a proper Internet connection

Too many customers and not enough investment in new equipment. 6-10pm is when the most people are using it sharing the bandwidth and therefore it gets slower and slower and slower. I use to get 2+Mb/s almost permanently and now at peak times it can be as slow as 0.2Mb/s.

Every time someone new buys a tablet / smartphone / laptop the internet will get slower until the internet providers upgrade their technology.

It's a conspiracy, thats why.  You are holding a tracking device and the companies that sell your sim card or cell phone contract are tracking you and selling your text and your call information to either the government or agencies that sell services considered typical to influence your buying behavior.  REPENT SINNER, you can still be saved, THROW YOUR PHONE IN THE RIVER.

Frans, I know Fat Sam who is running the company/ provider you mention, in Koh Kong. He told me that Ezecom mostly i for companies, because its rather expensive. By the way, this time I did not choose the provider, Metfone, it was installed by the landlord him self, before I moved in.

Bu as a matter of fact, I am trying to find something that work, and isnt too expensive for my humble budget.

Thanks for you advice.

The Difference between Ezecom and the other Providers is, that Ezecom guarantees you that you get the Speed you pay for at 97% of the Time.
The other Providers offer you a Maximum Speed which is not guaranteed.

By the way, Metfone lowered the price for 4 Mbps to $20 a month.

I am now living in Battambang. Have been since the first of November.

About two months ago, I got OPENNET here. 8 Megabit package, ADSL, $24 USD / month.

Most of the time, it is 10 Megabits. So far, no complaints. Maybe they are in SHV as well?

They are indeed setting up here in SHV. Hope they go ahead without many teething problems, then I would be interested!

Methpone 4 mbps Cambodian server and 2 mbps foreign server is 16$ a month, 20$ deposit fore the modem as I pay.

Sadly the never give me this amount speed, never. I'm already happy with 50% of what the promise.

Why don't we try a little test?

Since everyone is, no matter which ISP, routed on the same wires through to PP.

Try a http://www.speedtest.net but select a server in the USA.
