Fiber by P1 OH YEAH! NO FUP Quota YET.


As more and more people talking about fiber network, how good is Unifi… now we have another competitor.
Other than Maxis Fiber Service and TM Unifi, P1 Fiber is the latest competitor in this FTTH service. From what I can see, the plan is very competitive and interesting!

If Im not wrong, P1 Fiber is riding on TM’s fiber infrastructure. But what makes P1 Fiber plan outstanding is the 2 in 1 package which offer both mobile internet (Wimax or they so called 4G) and fixed line fiber internet. Although Maxis do offer something similar, but their plan has mobile internet as an add on to the fixed line package, which makes it more expensive compared to P1 Fiber.

All P1 fiber plan has 2 years contract, modems are provided (rental) for free.
And when joshuatly.com asked them about the Fair Usage Policy for fiber plan, they replied:

FUP Quota has not yet been implemented at this point of time but P1 reserves the rights to
start implementing the FUP Quota when we felt it’s necessary to ensure fair usage among our
users.

And about what will happened IF FUP quota is reached, they replied:

Once the quota is reached, P1 will throttle the speed to 400kbps. However, it is not being
implemented at this point of time.

Basically P1 will be covering 3 major areas, mainly Penang, Johor & Klang Valley. For more specific up to which street is covered, check here

I myself WILL BE subscribing to P1 Fiber plan (OnePlan 169). Still waiting for P1 to contact me. I am very much excited for this, hopefully will have it installed within this month. And by the time I have the service, will post some details including speedtest soon. πŸ˜€

If you have any questions or anything need clarification that you dont get from the P1 site or customer service crew, can try to leave a comment and I will ask for you πŸ˜€

    how the plan u using now? is it ok? how it compare with other such as maxis fibre?

      I can’t compare it to maxis, cos I didn’t use it before. But the maxis promo is cheaper. Don’t know if it’s still running.
      Overall the speed of P1 is pretty good, the only downside is the ping. Ping within malaysia still reasonable, but some other countries are not. Like I get 130 ping average to a Singapore game server where in streamyx and unifi it is less than 30. If you do trace route on P1 network, it is noticeable that it will have at least 7-8 hops still within P1 network own infrastructure before it went out to the “Internet”. Performance will suffer, but if ping is not crucial to you, P1 has the advantage cos you will have the wiggy with you, which perform average lah. That’s my short review of it for you.

    What’s the backbone of p1? Does the modem using bridge connection? I mean the modem connected to fiber line is TMNet’s?

      Yup, I believe all fiber provider in Malaysia except Time ride on TM’s fiber backbone, since they wont need to dig the road again…
      But it only uses their infra for last mile lah. P1 got their own peering station to other international backbone.
