Recently, it was proposed that internet access is made a constitutional right in Malaysia. Ideally, fibre broadband is the way to go with faster and reliable access that’s cost effective. Unfortunately, fibre broadband coverage is only limited to urban areas with high density, and as a result, there are many Malaysians that are deprived of high-speed broadband access.
Sure, there are other alternative technologies that can provide faster access, and this include 4G LTE. It’s faster to deploy but despite most mobile players claiming as high as 90% coverage, that often refers to population instead of geographical coverage. That leaves many underserved Malaysians without access to even 4G.
Even if you’re covered by both wired and wireless technology, there are residents that can’t apply for broadband due to insufficient fibre ports or their wireless networks are simply too congested to provide a decent experience.
If this is your situation, there’s now a third option to consider which can provide high-speed internet no matter where you are in Malaysia.

This will be a new High Speed Broadband (HSBB) network and it could connect underserved areas that are not covered by existing fibre broadband providers.
