Recently I was passed a MiFi modem for review from P1. In case you didn’t know, MiFis are mobile WiFi hotspots. Super convenient when you’re out and don’t want/have data connection. Plus it provides wifi for multiple devices so your friends can tumpang and connect their laptops, ipads, tablets phones all at the same time.
I must say that there are currently other providers that have a similar MiFi devices but some of the plans are not as attractive (eg: having different quota for different timing).
[Side note: Does DiGi not have a MiFi anymore? I cant seem to find it on their site]
Anyway I went to pick up the device from P1 Paddock (their main office/customer service center) and the process was extremely smooth and fast. I was observing others at the customer service area as well and one thing I like about the P1 Paddock is that they have ample seats scattered around the area.
I got the MX230 modem (there’s another modem MF230) and was pleasantly surprised to find out how small it was. Its 13x69x69mm and weighs a mere 76grams. The box comes with an instruction manual as well as a micro USB cable & plug/wall power adaptor (so you can charge on both a power point and computer.
Some specs about the MX230 modem :
- Supports up to 8 WiFi enabled clients (802.11b/g)
- It can also be used as a USB Modem when its in tethering mode on Windows XP, Vista, 7 or higher and Mac OS X 10.5 or higher
- It only takes 3 hours to complete a full charge
- A fully charged device can last for Up to 6 hours (depending on the usage)
