== Background ==
Due to (As) 24 Hours Network Engineer, I should equip my self with any of instance & mobility internet connection. You know what can I do at 22:00 in the night while our support called & need assitance even immediate action, while Warnet Owner close their last door ?.
This is a mandatory for service to be delivered as SLA defined.
My choice goes to Indosat 3.5G Technology (Matrix Number), which a bit different with INDOSATM2 Broadband though coming from the same group.
Mouth to mouth spread information, this 3.5G connection is pretty good in Speed.
Better than tradisional 3G, GPRS too far behind the race.
But truely I never want to have that ‘fast’ speed tested !. No Way.
Why ? My subscription is Volume Base ).
Anyway, yes I did once before.
Of course it’s not mine, my friend’s.
International Speed Test, I got 1.7 Mbps using this 3.5 Broadband.
== UPDATED JUNE 3, 2008 ==
I got my DUMeter shows 1.2 Mbps for high traffic last night. (3G Speed Reality).
Well refer to above reasons, I took 1 Gbps Volume.
I’m not sure If I can have remain couple Mbps of volume at the end of month or Over Volume
What I’m gonna do is :
- Using Webmail as much I can
- Warn my ‘internet’ family not to open any web with more ‘content’ on it.
- Lock internet connection by password key (good one )
== The set up ==
1. Insert Globe Trotter DataCard
2. Install Globe Trotter Driver (from CD) and Globe Trotter Connection Manager
3. Insert SIMCard into DataCard
4. Configure Connection Manager, just fill
username : indosat
password : indosat
APN : indosat3g
5. Wait for Network to be ready & registered to INDOSAT
6. Once Ready, get Connect.
== Issue ==
From last night, when Opening Globe Trotter Connection Manager, and the SIMCard inserted.
Why the system said always no network.
And I have to wait for at least 15-20 minutes to have this SIMCard registered to INDOSAT either 3G or HSDPA Network.
I’m afraid this can be even worst situation if I need to remote my network Immediately as our Network Monitoring Admin confirm that action needed to be conducted should the problem is not an easy one.
Or it might my Globe Trotter issue ?
== The Result ==
Once I got connected, even in Bekasi (Bintara) I Can have two bars of HSDPA from INDOSAT 3.5G Mobile Network. Please be informed, if you are using mail client for retrieving mail, ch ange your SMTP Server to : smtp.mystarone.com port 25 (though this belong to StarOne, it should work fine).
Pretty good in House signal.
The latency to gateway arround 230-250 ms with idle traffic.
The speed, please refer to top )
