Internet Radio Rocks!
It just occurred to me that subscribers to Starhub's Premium Broadband package will enjoy a free upgrade from a newspapers announcement a few weeks ago.
I realized this when I received an email from Starhub that my home will enjoy up to 100Mbps upgrade from our paid 12Mbps line. Yes!!!
I believe Sonny is so pleased with this as he must have noticed a much better online game experience these few days.
No wonder the internet radio I always turn on whenever I am on my iMac has continuous streaming since last weekend. I had very few interruptions and was thinking I was just plain lucky.
The free upgrade started on Friday, 17 July 2009. I am lucky... along with the other Premium Subscribers.
I am now tuned to a better sounding quality internet radio when I switched the Bit Rate, jumping to 192 from the normal 128... taken into account most radio station sources are from the United States. On top of that, the streaming is exceptional too at this higher rate.
Thank you Starhub!
It needs a competitor to increase the quality and standard of service on this island that benefits its consumer unlike another major IP that focuses much on squeezing every last penny from its subscribers.
Starhub has answered the call favorably as far as I am concern.
I am tempted to jump ship for a bundled package for my cellphone line with my cable TV with this provider as well. That should save me some money monthly and also support such provider that has its consumers' interest in mind.
