There is mention of less data in Broadband FAQ but no details > WHAT WILL HAPPEN IF MY CONTRACT PERIOD ENDS? > You will automatically be moved to a no contract plan, but with less data. There will be no changes to your monthly rental. To continue enjoying more data, simply renew your contract to 12 or 24 months. > HOW LONG CAN I STAY UNDER A NO CONTRACT PLAN? > You can stay for as long as you wish. However, you will enjoy more benefits i.e. more data or savings when you renew your contract.
Nationwide WiFi available
Has real unlimited connection
Data based plans should throttle on exceeding data
No mention in website, had to ask in person and they did not know the speed
Likely 1Mbps as was previously
1 or 2 year contract
Online communications not so great
Thier ima chat system has had a downgrade since the last time I used it
Says “Type a message” but you have to click buttons as they have disabled actual chat?
Personal identifiable information is sent in the clear in the address bar
Never got a response
Instagram direct message reply took 23 hours
From Instagram comments, people confused about new pricing
Find top 6 cheapest plans based on expected data usage
Shows top 3 cheapest per provider
Supports some filtering (e.g. minimum speed / contract)
Search Home Broadband (i.e. fibre), Mobile and Mobile Pay-As-You-Go
Displays information in tables for quick scanning of information
Plans are linked to source telco for more details
Copy link to current search to share with others
Most things are there and one current known issue is that Mobile Pay-As-You-Go search does not currently look at the number of days the data is valid: so a search for 1GB can show an addon that is only valid for 1 day. Hope to fix this one day down the road
So from this I wondered what we could do to learn from this but instead of just complaining, what are the steps we can do to improve this. I have seen a couple websites and in Brunei that don’t seem to emphasise their web presence or just have things set up weirdly and thought it would be great to use these as learning opportunities for the local tech community in general so I’m going try a #fixBruneiWebsites journey
Let us the people of Brunei highlight website issues and tag them on your social media platform
If you can, try to offer possible solutions
If you can’t that is ok too 🙂
Then anybody who’s keen or interested could look up posts with the hashtag and could offer and answer and reply back to the original post
This would be similar to the point above but Sitemaps are even more important compared to regular pages as they are used in SEO and help your page be found by search engines. While this Sitemap was an HTML page and not a XML Sitemap: HTML Sitemaps are still useful with the added bonus that it helps visitors to your site discover more things
Detail features of sections on a website
The “Consumer Affairs” link on the homepage isn’t a super obvious choice that it would lead to prices
Perhaps a shot
So I hope you come and join me on this #fixBruneiWebsites journey!

4 Geeks Went
Following up from a data hackathon and a community outreach program, there are things to tell and discuss!Agenda• 7pm: Event Kick off• 7:05pm: Mapping Brunei: The Journey and some Tools and Tricks for your Mapping needsTim will recount the arduous gathering data process from the previous data hackathon http://www.meetup.com/BruneiGeekMeet/event…
Best effort Internet: which sounds very similar to the eSpeed problems on yesteryear
My bandwidth at home cannot even reach 1Mbps, is there a rebate?
There will be no rebate given on your rental charge or quota. Our broadband service is best effort service. If your average broadband speed is low (approximately one megabit per second or less) we do not recommend you to purchase higher bandwidth or quota packages.
The code labs served as a way to learn Dart and it is even deployable on Heroku. We also covered a bit of Angular JS with a work in progress AngularJS intro project on GitHub.
Today marks the first meetup of Brunei Geek Meet (http://www.meetup.com/BruneiGeekMeet/), a meetup where I hope to start fostering the meetup culture that I’ve been experiencing here in Melbourne. We aim to be run by the community for the community. I believe that everybody has something to share and I want Brunei Geek Meet to be a platform for people to contribute to the community as a whole: be it as a learner, as a presenter, as a mentor, as a discussion starter, etc. We are more technology oriented (but are open to geeks of any kind!) and we intend to have talks, code labs, hacknights/days and other events where people can attend, learn and contribute in their own ways.
I am also please to announce that we have a license to hold a RHoK event in Brunei. With the tagline “Hacking for Humanity” RHoK believes in providing a platform for people (particularly technologists) to do social good and make the world a better place.
This is done by hackers working to solve a community problems which can be used in the region of the problem, and even to a bigger audience of the World. When I first attended RHoK, it brought me back to the days I was working on the SMARTER eCVS and I want RHoK Brunei to be of the same nature: for us to see a local need and for technologists to team up to work on a solution.
With that, I would like to extend an invitation to any individuals or organisations that are facing or know of problems that could use a technological solution to get in touch with me and so we can kick off some discussion on how the developer community of Brunei could help. My contact details are firstname.lastname@example.org / @thewheat. I truly hope that you can be a part of RHoK and help contribute to the betterment of the Brunei developer community by providing a real world problem that we, as a community, can get together and help solve.
