We were given the new 21mb ego by Zain a couple of hours ago so we could test it and give some feedback, and I got to test it for 3 hours and the results were very satisfying.
The review will consist of the following:
The new E-GO is in every Zain’s branch right now and gonna cost you KD45 and you can get it free by signing with them for 1 year and the monthly subscription is for KD32 if you have a Zain line already.
When it comes to shape i thought it would be bigger than the older one but its not. Actually its a bit smaller than the previous one but got the same thickness.
Its simple just plug it 2-3 steps then enjoy it! no CD no programs
just plug and play.
This is the most important part in the review, I was thinking to test
the speed with Speedtest.net then my sister suggested to try it out on downloads instead. We went ahead and started with a Torrent program and
opened all the download ports: the speed was 1019 KB/s
Its 1+ MB/s I was pleasantly surprised. you know what this number means?
mp3 song 5 MB = less than 5 sec.
Episode 350 MB = 6 mins
HD episode 700 MB = 12 mins
Full movie 800 MB = 15 mins
Just to be on the safe side I know most of you gonna say its not
stable with 1000+ KB/s, and yes you’re right coz it fluctuates from 750 – 1000+ KB/s. But considering the not so great network coverage we get at our place, this is a great improvement, and those of you who have better coverage would get better results, I’m sure.
This is sweet. Its compatible with Zain’s adapter so it means you can
plug it in the adapter and more than 1 laptop will be connected at the
same time. And ofcourse it runs smoothly on both Macs and windows.
All I can say is that it will very very soon be available for purchasing.
