I subscribed to P1 WiMax LITE Plan which offers 400Kbps download speed and 5GB usage quota. So, I ran the speed test again at 6am on 1 Feb 2010.
Why is P1’s result indicating 144kbps = 18KB/sec?
and why is Speedtest.net’s result using 0.22Mb/s? Are both measurements the same? 1,000kbps=1Mb/s? I thought there was a difference between Kbps and kbps. Hmm…
Clearly, the speed test results show it is way below the promised download speed of 400Kbps.
I wonder how the rest of the broadband providers (Maxis, Digi, Celcom, TMNet, U, YES, etc) in Malaysia are faring on the internet speed test.

I ran the internet speed tests again. This time, as recommended by @P1Cares, I connected my PC direct to the modem. Below are the results, which are quite commendable (at least closer to P1’s promised speeds).
