  1. Recently NBK transfers are very quick to US accounts, roughly one business day.
  2. That can happen with any car - two options for fixing rims. 1. Go to 'Makhrata AlSalam' on Oxygen roundabout in Shuwaikh - they can fix it directly 2. Go to a tire place (like auto 1) - they can call someone to pick it up and fix (around 12kd a rim). Keep in mind that in both options if the rim is severely damaged - no amount of repair will fix it. It will continue to shake (slightly).
  3. I am looking for a Huawei E5186 to replace the B593 - Thanks though
  4. Which router is it? Depending on the model I might be interested.
  5. If you end up getting it and want to combine them let me know. Right now I am running 3x dsl + zain lte - overall speed is around 80-150mbps (depending on LTE). The PS4 is automatically routed through the lowest latency connection. The setup is a bit overkill - but after the prices dropped a few years back, it was much more feasible to put 3x 10mb connection than one 20mb. Overall it came out to around 350kd a year for all of them with the infoconnect offers. The Zain LTE probably costs as much as the rest combined - but with speeds hitting 80-100mbps alone, it was a pretty good investment.
  6. Its on DSL - Doesn't the fiber box have two ports?
  7. Did another test today - here are the results. Qnet seems to be the best one offering the lowest (and consistent) ping speeds to --- KEMS (increased from 131ms - now 165ms) rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 164.622/165.006/165.909/0.471 ms Qnet: (Same result as before and still the lowest - 120ms) rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 117.607/119.750/122.510/1.769 ms FT: (Decreased from 227ms - now 176ms ) rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 172.164/176.019/179.047/2.779 ms Zain: (Increased from 125ms - still decent at 139ms) rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 134.445/139.773/144.440/3.298 ms
  8. I sent them my contact info - nobody called, so much for that.
  9. To be fair - the other ISPs have given me a very reliable service in comparison. I have gotten the speed paid for for KEMS/Qnet (10MB) - however, my FT connection (15MB subscription set to 12MB because of DSL capability) is always underperforming, I have attached a quick example. I hope these issues are resolved in your upcoming upgrades, it would change my opinion on renewing this connection.
  10. Results from different ISPs (same location - not fiber). Lowest: Qnet KEMS: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 130.525/131.120/132.086/0.542 ms Qualitynet: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 116.368/120.467/126.965/3.744 ms Fasttelco: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 199.872/227.638/270.715/23.361 ms Zain: rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 118.919/124.877/133.552/4.074 ms
  11. It depends - you need to add to your cart and compare with individual items. Take into consideration that with Amazon direct, you don't pay US taxes, Kuwait Customs is already prepaid and the items arrives quicker because there is no middle man.
  12. +1 And if you ship using expedited - it can arrive in ~2-3 days through DHL, costs more though.
  13. I actually like the process - it downloads and gets ready on its own time, and will be ready to upgrade when its launched. Much better than trying to fight a couple million people for download slots on launch day (only to have the download cancelled for unstable internet).
  14. Windows 10 official launch days has been announced - July 27th. My computer got a pop-up asking if I wanted to reserve a spot for a free upgrade (I guess it pre-downloads it, around 3gb).
  15. If you don't have a tracking number - its going to be very tough to track/find your package.
