Here’s a short clip of the luxury coach. Sorry, no video of in bus browsing because I’m sure it’ll give you motion sickness. Browsing experience was fine, though initial tests didn’t show that good a result.
It was an awkward moment where you test YTL network at YTL territory (KL PAC) to server hosted by YTL and see it slow and site showing competitor ads.
Nevertheless, after the bus ride, I did have a discussion with a friend of mine who was on another coach and he claimed that on HIS personal Yes 4G network he manage to get 8 Mbps while my test was via the WiFi signal provided.
I suppose YTL communications would have to look into this matter, nevertheless connection was usable.
The coach itself was comfortable, I love the Ogawa massage chair system used for the seats. 😀 Just electronically adjust the seat to your preferred incline and get the massage going, with some movies available on the screen at your seat.
