Wednesday, last week, I bought an HSDPA modem so that I can go mobile within Klang Valley, Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia. The brand is U-Mobile, for information about U-Mobile please visit
The modem is connected to the PC through USB port. The speed is up to 3.6Mbps depends on the coverage, however the dealer said that the company is now in the process of upgrading the network, the speed is expected to be 7.2Mbps. The company also plan to expand the network. Hopefully it will be implemented as soon as possible. So that my mobility is not just in Klang Valley.

From 2 -3 days experience, the speed is acceptable, however when I uses it home , most of the time the signal strength is quite low but enough to update the blog , email , google around, and play turn base chess at .

Any Malaysian using HSDPA modem ? which service provider?

Just have a look on Wikipedia about HSDPA :

"High-Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) is a 3G (third generation) mobile telephony communications protocol in the High-Speed Packet Access (HSPA) family, which allows networks based on Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) to have higher data transfer speeds and capacity. Current HSDPA deployments support down-link speeds of 1.8, 3.6, 7.2 and 14.4 Mbit/s. Further speed increases are planned for the near future. The networks are then to be upgraded to Evolved HSPA, which provides speeds of 42 Mbit/s downlink in its first release. "
