What to do

i’ve been a q-net customer for 2 years now, first with a 512 speed then 1mb. now my subscription is up for renewal and i’m considering other options. i keep hearing that q-net is one of the best and most reasonably priced isp’s out there, but what about the zain 7.2mb service (with the router not ego)?

the speed sounds pretty enticing – i’m sure that 7.2 is far from reality, but even if it’s 2 or 3mb then it’s still worth it.

now for the price:
- zain 7.2 is 27kd a month, which adds up to 324kd yearly
- q-net 1mb is 368kd yearly

since the price difference isn’t huge, the question is whether or not the zain service is reliable – has anyone tried it or heard about the quality of their service ?

should I stick with q-net or go with zain ?

help, I cant stay much longer without internet at home

I say go with Q-net just cause it sounds cooler. I hate the name Zain for a phone company....

Q-net sounds like Ice-Cubes brother so its cool....

ive heard that if u subscribe to zain...then theres a download limit.and if u surpass it then your connection speed is slowed down....might want to check on that...

sunshine: really :/

um-mit3ib: we women have such diff criteria to judge by ;)

eddy, it's true that after u hit 30gb the speed goes down for the rest of the month - but i dont think i've ever reached that in 1 month
