It's been a blast using Qubee's wimax service. I've subscribed to their shuttle 1Mbps unlimited service, since I download lots of software applications and numerous linux distributions. My subscription started on 2nd October, 2010, and it has been performing rock solid ever since. However, today when I booted my system, I noticed that the net was incredibly sluggish and I couldn't even open google on it without a significant delay. I replugged the usb shuttle device, checked that my signal strength was ok (it's always 100%), and both my CINR & RSSI are way above recommended values (27 for CINR & -75 for RSSI). Running a speedtest and a private tracker confirmed my suspicions. I'm being throttled to 128Kbps, when infact I paid 1500/- for a 1Mbps "unlimited" package. I guess the idiots at qubee don't know what unlimited really means. Their customer support takes a long time to respond. Especially when I made a query about the usb shuttle support on linux on 3rd October, I got the response 9 days later oO. Even now I've been trying to get in touch with their customer support, but all of their numbers are busy. Is this the limit of Qubee's "unlimited" package or is something genuinely wrong with their system ?? Any other users from Lahore experiencing the same issue as well ??? It's unbelievable that a company like Qubee whose been advocating true unlimited bandwidth would commit such unethical practices. If you can't afford to offer unlimited packages, why bother ???
Hope to see a response from Qubee guyz here soon.
