P1 has a new Wiggy

Packet One (P1) has launched a new USB modem for its Wimax service. Called the UH-235 Super Wiggy, it will replace the original UM-230 which is also popularly known simply as the Wiggy.

The new USB modem has a more advanced and sensitive 5dBi antenna that will deliver better uplink and downlink performance, the company said.

The new UH-235 can also be fitted with a suction cup to fix the modem to a window and a one-metre long USB cable for easy installation.

P1 also announced that the original Wiggy 59, 89 and 129 plans have been discontinued and the Casual Wiggy, Wiggy and Super Wiggy packages have been introduced to replace them.

Existing subscribers packages who want to upgrade to the new modem will also have to upgrade their existing packages to either the Wiggy or Super Wiggy package. Unfortunately, the Casual Wiggy package will still come with the older UM-230 modem.

Current P1 4G Home subscribers with the desktop modem can also get the UH-235 Super Wiggy as an add-on for mobile use by opting for the Supreme Add-On which is an extra RM30 per month on top of their existing subscription.

Also, showcased was a MiFi personal hotspot unit which will be introduced early next year.

The MiFi from P1 is similar to the ones introduced by other telcos, and essentially turns the user into a walking WiFi hotspot, allowing multiple devices to be connected to the Internet simultaneously. — TAN KIT HOONG
