Oh boy, it looks like TM is planning to announce something because we just got an invite to a “special media briefing session” tomorrow. The question now is: What are they going to announce?
When Gobind Singh Deo took the role of Minister of Communications and Multimedia, he made broadband price reduction as one of his main priorities. He promised that he will work towards doubling our internet speeds while reducing the subscription cost by half.
Just after Xpax revealed its new prepaid and postpaid plans, it’s now ookyo‘s turn and their new offering actually sounds really good on paper. The gist? Both the Social and Entertainment packs are gone. Now you get to decide what apps you want unlimited internet for.
Cloudflare, the company that provides Content Delivery Network (CDN) and DDoS protection for websites has just launched a new free Public DNS service called 126.96.36.199. It does sound like the IP address that you use to login for free WiFi but this isn’t a joke.
CloudFlare’s 188.8.131.52 aims to provide not only faster internet through speedier name resolving, but it’s also designed to keep your internet traffic private.
As more people come online, dangers of being online, and the dangers of being attacked by someone you don’t even know from a country you’ve never even heard of become more apparent. It then becomes paramount for tech giants like Google — on which a lot of us have most of our lives stored — to push for a safer internet environment.
However, the security that they implement can only do so much if you don’t take this seriously too. So, here are 5 tips Google’s shared to help you stay just that little bit safer when you’re browsing online.
If you don’t have access to fibre broadband and 4G LTE, CONNECTme might be your next best alternative for high-speed connectivity. Launching on 8 March this year, CONNECTme is a satellite-based broadband service that promises 100% coverage throughout Malaysia.
Since it uses satellite, weather can greatly affect its quality of service. If you’re wondering how it’s like when it rains, CONNECTme has shared a video of a speed test that’s conducted while it’s raining.
The future of cashless payments is exciting stuff. This utopian future where you don’t have to carry around fat, receipt-filled wallets nor queue up for ages at an ATM machine to withdraw cash. So far, we’ve seen quite a few promising contenders playing in this space already, but the latest one to join the fray may be the most promising one yet.
The best way to get your home online is definitely with Fibre broadband. For those who are not covered, the next best alternative would be 4G broadband. Unfortunately, some people don’t have access to these two options. For these underserved population, they don’t have much choice except for ADSL services like Streamyx or slower 3G/2G connectivity.
Now it appears there’s a new player in town and it promises to provide 100% coverage throughout Malaysia. This means every home can enjoy faster speeds where Fibre and 4G aren’t available.
The world is coming online and with that, habits are changing, most notably how we purchase goods and services. In the past, you had to crowd with everyone else doing their last minute holiday shopping but now you can get practically everything you need with a few simple taps.
Malaysia’s no different and the meteoric rise of e-commerce is almost scary. But every revolution has its victims and with such a drastic shift in how people discover and purchase goods, some start to wonder what’s going to happen to all the local brick and mortar small-medium enterprises (SMEs).
