I think it's not only the speed problem.

I think internet is quite expensive in Boleh when compare to neighbouring countries.

Any figures to compare with Mr ng?

Compare apple to apple....

In Mauritius where I was the whole of last week, it is an African republic and an island known for its off-shore banking and tax haven. Then you look at Labuan, an island with offshore facilities and touted to be financial hub once upon a time....

I bought a one week broadband package for USD19.90 for high-speed unlimited use for 7 days in Mauritius... In Labuan, you're lucky if you can download your 30-page spreadsheet in 15 minutes....

I dunno lah..anyone can easily point out what Malaysia is far behind and catching up to competition can be seen as pathetic or not in the best interest of the rakyat. Then can always blame the service providers as only business minded and make hay while the sun is still shining on them. There's numerous reasons I can think of why but I cannot say much as it cannot be substantiated with anything. Blame is always easy with the slightest reason one can think of. Looks like if anyone insist on better performance, you're expected to dig deeper into the pocket. Since when is Malaysia things murah murah..that's silly thinking, its always jual mahal and they prosper, not you. When our shringgit shrink even further, expect to pay more for goods and services in future..period!

Then we shouldn't complain at all.... not just cost of internet broadband service but of everything if the attitude is bo chap siao....

Just accept it and pay.... no complaints please....

I heard that the main reason they keep price high and speed low is to protect astro.


If you can stream videos across internet cheaply and fast , astro might go bankrupt.

can't validate this though

Seems to make sense, Astro is soooo powerful?

From D NET, I am able to stream ASTRO SUPERSPORT3, 4, 5 as one of the hundreds of programmes.

I wonder if this is the same ASTRO in Boleh:confused:

Over in vietnam, there are many channels on the tv in all hotels. I think more than 60 of them. I guess the subscription is cheaper than compared with bolehland. I know from previous experience that just three channels costs 4k plus for medium sized hotel.
