Two weeks ago Mada held up a gaming event for bloggers to try out their newest gaming connection. How were gonna test it you may ask and the answer is simply by competing online in Call Of Duty MW3 & Need For Speed The RUN.
Of course the connection speed may vary according to your residential area but in general it should deliver the best gaming connection with the lowest latency & ping possible, till now I’m not sure of the exact ping but I’m gonna update the post when Mada sends it to me.
My buddy Aziz is a COD addict which is not a big news for anyone who knows Aziz & usually during the weekend we play with the guys in dewaneya & I enjoy pissing him off when comparing score even if he is higher than me :p so its no surprise that he was competing in COD & I choose The RUN but during the event we had a chance to compete in both.
During my COD i didn’t experience any lag but in my Need For Speed I got disconnected twice & I got back online within seconds. In general the connection was great & the idea behind hosting a gaming competition for bloggers to test it out was so awesome especially coz Bensirri were the event organizers. Check our scores down below 🙂
Mada have offered us an ISDN service to test and make use of their portable landline included in their package.We’ve received it since Ramadan and it might seem late to publish a review now but the past period was a torture testing period for their service. I wanted to make sure that internet service would be reliable in most residential areas in Kuwait. Since Mada is a wireless internet provider internet speed may vary according to the area, although they have their own coverage area table i just wanted to run my own tests. You may check it on their website Here coz the table down below represents my own testing results.
Mada ISDN service comes with a portable landline that could be so appropriate for small businesses, of course the landline works fine for receiving and making calls so basically nothing to test other than call quality and as i mentioned before its fine. Now for the their internet service, one issue that may be annoying to some users that the router has to be near a window to get the best signal available in your area. Basically you have to run a speed test next to each window in your house to know exactly the best place for the router. Some times the best place for the router is not the best place for you but that is something you have to bare with especially when using a wireless internet provider. Due to my personal horrible experience with Fasttelco & QualityNet i began to favour wireless net providers (Zain,Viva & Mada) although it might not be as stable in connection speed but at least they have a qualified technical staff for support rather than Fasttelco who always claim that your house wiring is the problem or coz you use a Mac not windows, i could go on and on talking about how horrible their service is and their support. Dont get my wrong that im bashing them now coz of Mada but i couldnt help remembering their stupidity anyway back to our topic. Below you will find a table i gathered with the help of my friends testing the internet speed in various areas and the speed mentioned in the table is the average speed taken mostly 2 to 3 times a day, the main purpose of this table is just to get an idea on the connection speed. Since its a wireless provider speeds may vary also your house location versus their tower would have a huge effect of the speed you might experience so take it with a grain of salt dont totally rely on it coz each location in the same residential area may experience different speed.
Finally i would like to thank Mada for the ISDN service & of course my friends who helped alot in the making of this test (Thanks Guys 🙂 )
