by Chief Chapree · 1 month ago · 28 Comments · 8.2k views

Basic Broadband Package Announcement

A few weeks ago, we reported that local telco companies have generally agreed to lower down the prices for their broadband packages. However, the exact amount of price reduction was still under wraps until just a few hours ago through the official announcement by the Minister of Communications and Multimedia, Datuk Seri Ahmad Shabery Cheek.

According to the subsequent press statement from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), the reduction applies to both fixed line and mobile broadband packages. That being said though, the reduction seems to be limited to entry-level broadband packages at the moment.

[Opinion] In Defence Of Malaysia’s “Slow” Internet

by Lucas Lau · 1 year ago · 43 Comments · 8.6k views

Malaysia

I complain about the state of Malaysia’s internet like the rest of you. I have experienced the golden pastures of Korea and Japan, clocking ridiculous speeds in coffee shops and seeing that Speedtest needle redline like a a drift car attacking a course. I have experienced the time where not even an instagram picture would load while my phone proudly reported H+ with a smug satisfaction, like it wasn’t just H, it was better than that.

But when people were sharing this article from a daily that based on a study conducted by Ookla (of speedtest.net fame) proclaimed Malaysia to have, on average, slower (therefore worse) internet than neighbours Vietnam & Cambodia, even my jaded eyebrow was raised.

Today I rise to the defence of our internet. The numbers don’t tell the full story and lead us on a roundabout journey of self loathing and MCMC complaints when in fact, we are not doing so badly at all. The number at the end of a speedtest is not the be all and end all, being able to take the test in more places anywhere in the country, is.
