Synopsis

The government in Malaysia has a strong commitment to developing a technological society. As part of this strategy, it has encouraged a large number of high tech companies from around the world to set up a presence in Malaysia. Malaysia is continuing to promote itself as an Information Technology hub in the Asian region.

The Malaysian fixed broadband market remains underdeveloped. Telekom Malaysia’s fibre-based services on the High Speed Broadband (HSBB) network has seen progression in the fixed broadband market, however progress has been slow.

Telekom Malaysia is rolling roll out a last mile access network to homes and businesses utilising fibre-to-the-home (FTTH), Ethernet-to-the-home (ETTH) and VDSL2 technologies. The ten-year HSBB 2 project encompasses the deployment of additional access and core capacity covering state capitals and selected major towns throughout the country.

Growth in the fixed broadband subscriber market has been flat over the past five years due to a stagnant number of fixed lines and the growing dominance of mobile broadband. Over the next five years to 2024 slow growth is expected to continue.

The Malaysian government aims to launch its ‘National Fibre Connectivity Plan’ in 2019. The plan will develop broadband infrastructure to ensure more efficient spectrum allocation to achieve the targeted 30Mbps speed in rural and remote areas within five years.

Key developments:

  • Slow growth in broadband penetration is predicted for the next five years to 2024.
  • The Malaysia government aims to launch its ‘National Fibre Connectivity Plan’ in 2019.
  • The plan will develop broadband infrastructure to achieve the targeted 30Mbps speed.
