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 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.
