Broadband in Malaysia could do much better and those living outside the Klang Valley often get the short end of the stick. Knowing the importance of internet connectivity, Sarawak’s Chief Minister, Datuk Amar Abang Johari Tun Open pledges to leapfrog the state in terms of infrastructure in the next five years. The state is committed to investing RM1 billion ringgit in order to provide high-speed connectivity up to 2 terabits per second. Yup, you read that right. 2 terabits per second or 2,000 Gbps.

Now, however, TM has just given us a sneak peak into their master plan on how they’re going to put the initiatives set out in the 2017 Budget, in motion.
