It has been a while since we heard anything from the Singapore-based ISP ViewQwest who has expanded its operation into Malaysia in 2016. As it turns out, the company has quietly roll out its residential Internet plans few months ago.
Announced in September which was just in time for the one-year anniversary of its operation in Malaysia, the company’s residential offerings which is called Fibernet are available in three different plans as listed below:
100Mbps: RM 148 per month
300Mbps: RM 188 per month
500Mbps: RM 298 per month
Each subscriber is provided with round-the-lock tech support as well as dynamic IP address and ASUS RT-AC1200G+ router. According to its official website, ViewQwest doesn’t implement any traffic shaping and actually confident enough to market its service as the “ultimate Bit-Torrent broadband”.
Additionally, the ISP also claimed that it able to deliver the best latency rating with the help of its smart routing equipment in its network. There is one big catch though: Fibernet is currently only available in Setia Eco Glades at Cyberjaya.
While ViewQwest has completely missed its target of delivering 1Gbps residential service by the end of 2016, it is always good to see another ISP comes into the market and provide competitive pricing to consumers. However, almost all of them are only able to offer these plans in very limited places which is quite a bummer.
