Broadband Service (or lack thereof?)

Two articles on the development of the Malaysian broadband services caught my interest this week. One came in the form of a full page ad in a local daily taken out by DiGi, Malaysia’s third largest telco. They were (finally) launching their mobile broadband service called DiGi Turbo 3G. Now those of you who know me will know that I have for the longest time been intending to switch my telco provider to Digi but have been put off by its lack of 3G connection. So just imagine my disappointment when I read that it would only be launched in Penang and Sabah!! Looks like my wait will (sadly) have to continue until DiGi extends their service to the Klang Valley – Digi customer service people, are you listening?

The other article was a press release by Telekom Malaysia on their progress of developing the country’s high-speed broadband network – it is on target to¬†commercially launch its High Speed Broadband (HSBB) retail service in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Bangsar, Subang Jaya and Shah Alam by the end of the first quarter next year. This meant further disappointment for me, yet again – the second time this week.

Nonetheless, these two developments are encouraging signs that broadband services in Malaysia should eventually improve. My only question is Рhow much longer do we long suffering Malaysians have to wait?? Also, I have just one request to all the broadband service providers in Malaysia Рyou know who you are. Its not just about the SPEED of the connection, RELIABILITY is just as important! This means fast, reliable connections ALL (or most of) the time Рand not just in the initial stages when you have minimal subscribers!
