I am not sure if many of you have noticed but over the past few months, users have been having their packages downgraded back to their original subscribed speeds.
In the past, when you bought a 1.0 mbps connection from Streamyx, you’ll get a 1.5 mbps connection for no additional fees. This was enjoyed for a few years. Recently, without any announcement that I am aware of, people have been having their speed cut back to their original speeds.
So if you were having 150-160 kB/sec download speeds, this will now go down to about 80-90 kB/sec.
One cannot help but wonder if it’s a ploy to get people to switch to Unifi or upgrade their package and also conserve their bandwidth at the same time though it’s hard to argue since it was a ‘bonus’ to begin with and top-up for the higher speeds (where available) are not high.
