Fibre Broadband 30 Mbps To 1 Gbps Internet Speed, Nationwide Coverage By 2020
Malaysia’s Communications and Multimedia Director, Gobind Singh Deo recently announced that our Government has approved an RM21.6 billion budget to ensure that every single person in the country can have equal access to the internet. This incentive under the National Fiberisation And Connectivity Plan (NFCP) aims to bring internet coverage throughout Malaysia, in towns big and small, and close the huge digital gap that currently exists. Whilst metropolitan cities like Kuala Lumpur and Penang are well connected, there is a glaring lack of internet coverage in rural areas and the smaller towns of Malaysia.
In this digital age, being able to connect to the internet is no longer a choice, but is an absolute necessity for us to stay competitive on a global scale. Soon, each and every Malayian can finally enjoy equal internet access wherever they are, do more in a shorter time with high speed broadband, and truly embrace all the cutting edge convenience of the digital era.
With the implementation of the NFCP, Gobind is confident Malaysia will have nationwide internet coverage by 2020, with internet speed of at least 30 mbps in populated areas and 1 Gigabit speed or more in all state capitals by 2023.
High Speed Broadband: Towards A Fully Developed Nation
Combining fibre optics and wireless connectivity, people in remote parts of Malaysia will soon be able to experience high speed broadband. TIME internet, Maxis broadband, Maxis Fibrenation, Celcom broadband, Unifi broadband and Astro iptv have stepped up their efforts to bring us all faster internet at a lower price.
This means Malaysians can now compare prices and internet plans among Malaysia’s leading Internet Service Providers.
The stage is set for Malaysians to enjoy full internet coverage with high speed fibre broadband. With the world’s infrastructure changing at the speed of light, so must internet speed and connectivity improve. Full broadband coverage nationwide would enable Malaysia to stay on track to becoming a fully developed nation and to remain competitive on a global scale.
Right now, internet connection speed of 30 Mbps is available in most towns, priced below RM100. 1 Gbps is availale in most of Cyberjaya, home of Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor.
