I am re-evaluating my broadband contract options again, and wanted to find details about M1 Fixed Broadband offers. So I head over to Google to search for M1 Fixed Broadband. Lo and behold… the top hit (at least for now) leads straight back to my own blog posting. I had expected to find M1′s website to be the top hit, but well it turned out to be number 2.
My blog posting had simply been a comparison between the new M1 Fixed Broadband offering and StarHub’s MaxOnline.
At this time, StarHub is no longer offering the Apple Time Capsule promotion which they had in September. Might as well, I guess, since I don’t really need the Time Capsule anymore now that I have a Maxtor OneTouch 4 Plus to run Time Machine on. The Time Capsule promotion would have been a distraction, because Time Capsule looks cool and even though I don’t really need it, it makes me keep wondering if there are any good reasons why I should still get it. Like having 802.11n, for example.
There’s nothing new with M1 Fixed Broadband offers now. On the StarHub front, there is a new Sony Giga Juke 80GB HDD Micro-Hifi freebie that claims to be worth $699. That ought to make it more attractive than the old Time Capsule freebie (supposed to be worth $489).
I don’t really need a 80GB HDD Jukebox. But it does look nice too. I wonder if it is really worth $699? One could buy a PC for $699. What’s so great about this Juke Box?
Since my Linksys WRT54G wireless broadband router recently died on me, I might now want to consider taking up the D-Link DIR-615 802.11n wireless broadband router offered with the Hubber Bonus. It is claimed to be worth $159, which would be more attractive than taking up the $88 subscription rebate.
It’s kind of getting rather annoying that there are no compelling offers nowadays. I am tempted to go for M1′s rather no-frills offer, but I’m hesitant after reading and hearing reports about problems with their broadband service.
I wonder if anyone has comments to share about the Sony Juke Box and D-Link’s DIR-615?
