Dialog OfficeNet+ rocks on a holiday

This is not a scientific evaluation of Dialog’s WiMax actual speeds, which in the past and even today have simply not matched advertised speeds. Being Thai Pongal perhaps, speeds today on Dialog’s OfficeNet+ connection are terrific and are the best speeds I have ever experienced in Sri Lanka.

The following is a screenshot of Transmission downloading a movie. Clearly, Dialog isn’t blocking P2P traffic today, but on numerous occasions during a normal working day, I’ve had problems logging into, seeing the status of others and talking on Skype on this connection. Click for larger image.

For a far more rigorous analysis of Dialog’s HomeNet+ connection (and other ‘broadband’ connections), check out the results of Lirneasia’s Quality of Service study here.

    this is great… get a connection 4mbps as they call it and use it only during holidays to get speeds and during weekdays, find another provider that can really offer what they promise ?😀
