Due to the condition of the apartment building i stayed at, there is no way to get a standard wired boardband or naked boardband. Wireless is the only choice, and i m with WOOSH at the moment. I dont think Woosh wireless can be recon as bordband, i need to wait for some time before a webpage can be opened. and i have to give up watching online video Sealed

i can't complaint too much, i get what i pay for. Woosh is the cheapest around and with the lowest set up fee + easy to set up.

i spend some time try to find a better wireless boardband provider, such as worldnet, compass, natcom...etc   after all, i found they are quite expensive, may not be the plan fee but the set up fee and following charges, such as relocating fee., and some of them require up to 36 month contract. funny thing is i had answer from one of the provider, said service could't reach to the building which have more than 5 level....

Anyway, i lost patience with WOOSH. Could please someone recommand a better wireless to me - faster(than woosh) not too expensive to set up and sound customer service? i don't play online games, mostly use internet for watching online video, surfing the web.

Cheers!!!Tongue out

You need to provide us with more information, like how many GB's do you use in a month? Perhaps mobile broadband could be an option.
