Internet in Malaysia

The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission sets a low threshold for broadband [] :

:• Malaysian broadband definition:

::– Any service beyond the scope of existing PSTN/ISDN and 2G cellular networks

::– With data rates that exceed the the normal voice-related speed (56 kbit/s for PSTN and 64 kbit/s for ISDN)

This definition is far below the primary rate interface lower limit defined by the International Telecommunications Union in ITU-R F.1399 [ [ Microsoft Word - ABFL Groupe Intellex.doc ] ] .

Cellular broadband


Leased line

* [ City Broadband] - City Broadband provides high speed dedicated Ethernet broadband-over-fibreoptic in Cyberjaya with Gigabit speed capacity. City Broadband customers don't need to lease a separate line a.k.a. "leased line" to get the required dedicated bandwidth since the digital fibreoptic link/line comes together with City Broadband dedicated bandwidth at no additional leased line charge. That's why City Broadband is also known as broadband-over-fibreoptic provider.
