Taken from their website:

V-Net:

“Get high-speed Internet access on your laptop when you are on the move with VIVA 3.5G Data Card. It offers data transmission on laptop at speed up to 14.4 Mbps with V-Net (High-Speed Downlink Packet Access) coverage.

Two packages for V-Net:

  • Pay as you go package, activated by default for all type of subscribers. This package is rated per Kbyte, 1 fils per Kbyte.
  • Unlimited package, this package is for 27KD/month.”

V-Link:

“When you plug a USB Modem into a laptop, it connects you to the web instantly. V-Link is a perfect option for Internet access on the go. Welcome the super slim and lightweight. You get freedom from wires and speedy Internet access on the move all in a tiny 30g V-Link Modem.

Just plug the V-Link into your USB slot and watch as everything auto-installs, it’s quick and easy, and with V-Net you can get broadband Internet access speeds of up to 7.2 Mbps.”

I don’t know what is the difference between these 2 services except that in the V-Net there is no modem mention and the speed is up to 14.4, and on the V-Link there is the modem but the speed is up to 7.2.

Click on the links to read more about both the V-Net & V-Link.

Thanks Khalid.

    1 files per kb, IS FREAKING EXPENSIVE!

    i don’t give a damn about the modem speed, which they keep telling us, i care about the upload rate and download rate, i’m going to try it out soon as they pay me my delayed salary :/

    No improvement here then 🙁

    Did you check the last line in the V-Net page? Regarding cancellation:

    Service cancellation

    •To stop the service, customer have to call our customer care agents on [102] free of charge (stoppage during the cycle is discussed in the section above)
    •Visit our POS and ask to stop the service
    Assess the reasons behind this decision, try to improve what is dissatisfying to decrease diminishing returns ( what does this mean)

    LOL, a little trigger happy with the copy & paste there!

    Wireless router to hookup xbox?
    There are ways around things…

    Have you ever shared network with the xbox through the Network Jack? It’s simple once you go through the online steps. You have to use a twisted pair(Crossover cable).

    I am disapointed in the prices for Viva. I thought they would help bring the competition prices down and quality up.
