InfoConnect ISP Pricing

NetworkCables

Thanks to UpTill1 I manage to see the pricing before heading over to InfoConnect to renew my internet service. Its the best time and best pricing, I have two connections at home, Qnet and Kems, I am happy with both ISPs and Kems still ranks #1 for customer support and resolving issues. I paid 720 KD to Qnet for a 7 MB connection and 299 KD for a 2MB connection for a Kems connection, but not it seems the price have been really reduced, its also due to them optimizing their networks.

ISP Ranking:

  • Kems – Best Support
  • Qnet – Best Pricing
  • Fastelco – Best Improvement overall this year
  • Gulfnet – Don’t even bother with them, the worst service possible

I have gone ahead with the Max DSL package from Qnet which ranges from 5MB to 24MB, the stipulation is that it will go to the maximum of line not reduced whenever they feel like it as I have 7MB currently and want faster. Its really worth it for 420 KD and my line supports 11MB so it will be a significant improvement, this increase is supposed to take place by Monday at the maximum so I will test it then.

Now for Kems I have a 2MB connection and I want to upgrade since their prices are very reasonable right now, for 399 KD I can have 4MB or for 599 KD I can have 8 MB. The combination of these two networks would be very much a reality with the ftp downloads at full throttle. I have managed to use each one for a purpose but the packages are enticing.

    I appreciate if you can give me your view on Max DSL because I am thinking of upgrade my line support 12MB. And what do you think of Buffalo Wireless-N Nfiniti Broadband ADSL2+ Modem Router to replace Qualitynet Netgear modem router? It costs 39KD at Infoconnect

  2. Do you download bluray/HD movies? coz i just know isohunt.com

    do you have any other websites?

    Did anyone notice that QualityNet has locked the IP address since the beginning of the month to the IP that starts with 78. From previous experience playing online gaming, its one of the worst IPs they have. I called them and filled a complaint as the one who talked to me over the phone didn’t know that there were deferent IP addresses that starts with 162 or 213 or 198 and 78 (I like 162, I think it’s their best one) he said that a supervisor will call me back about my problem but 4 days has passed without anyone calling about the complaint. I don’t think they have a complaint system or at least a decent complaint system, as my case would have showed that it’s still open. Unless they didn’t register the complaint, but that’s a totally deferent matter.

    In any case, I think I’m going to try Kems this week and hope I would get better customer server.

    Cool speed. Do you really need that much speed though? KEMS had an offer for new connections, 1Mbps connection on GPON boxes were automatically upgraded to 3Mbps.

    Qualitynet is BAD, and NO! they don’t have the best pricing structure!!!

    There speeds are inconsistent and they lie about the bandwidth packages you get.

    There customer service is not only arrogant but is not technically capable of resolving most of the problems.

    I agree that Fast Telc is the new kid on the block, doing a great job in pricing its packages attractively are delivering on the speed they provide.

    I switched to Fast telco, in early August and they’re amazing!

    Can you explain how do you know what speed your line supports? how can you tell this? im new to kuwait and looking to get broadband for my house to connect a router to my Xbox360, PS3 and PC etc and have wireless as well. thanks

    Hi,

    I have been using united networks (Gulfnet) for the past 4 years, and my experience with them was/is the best so far. I have tried fast telco/qnet and both had bad service and bad tech support.

    I am a heavy internet user, and i require a static ip address, Qnet/Fast telco don’t offer static ip, however, Gulfnet offer static IP for an extra charge a month (I have 3 MB line) and it doesn’t disconnect while downloading huge files, play games, streaming, etc…also Gulfnet have the best offers right now for the summer check it out: http://www.un.com.kw

    Just my 2 cents
