Vote for Next P1 W1MAX Coverage

I suppose this is a first for an ISP in Malaysia to allow consumer voting to influence their coverage expansion and development plans.

Packet One, in an unconventional move, has launched an interactive voting feature on its website, declaring that the most popular places voted will get P1 W1MAX coverage first in order of popularity according to number of votes.

Currently the favorite places (with most consumer demand supposedly) are:
  • SS2, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  • Bandar Sungai Long, Kajang, Selangor
  • Jalan Ipoh, Kuala Lumpur
  • Seksyen 14, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  • Taman Bahagia, Petaling Jaya, Selangor
  • Taman Universiti Indah, Seri Kembangan, Selangor
  • Desa Aman Puri, Kepong, WP Kuala Lumpur
  • Taman Puchong Permai, Puchong, Selangor
  • Taman Istimewa, Johor Bahru, Johor
  • Pumpong, Alor Setar, Kedah
Notice how many areas in Petaling Jaya are listed? If it were up to me, I will tell P1 to just cover the whole Petaling Jaya area before proceeding anywhere else, that would give them some capital too once they secured 1/2 year(s) contracts with new subscribers there.

Then I am also surprised to find Alor Setar on that list, how about other supposedly rather modern states like Penang and Perak (Perak can also be quiet, I know...)? By the way, some parts in Johor Bahru is already covered, I guess Johor will be the state with most demand for fast internet connection after Selangor.

Those are the places I vote for. If your residential or office area is not listed in the favorite places on the left, you can actually add your own favorite place into the list and then vote for it. This is cool because I am looking forward to having the option to subscribe to P1 W1MAX, although I am still mostly undecided.

By the way, which areas did you vote for?

Hey Lisalicious,

you can add the area that you want to be covered by typing in the location (Jalan So-So-and-So), the area and selecting the state.

Hope P1 W1MAX will arrive at your area soon so that you have more ISP choices.

Happy New Year by the way. Best of luck, health and wealth in 2009 :)
