FTTH in Malaysia

Looks like the FTTH ( Fiber To The Home ) in Malaysia ball is rolling again. There are reports of Maxis and TM enrolling testers in Bangsar and Sri Hartamas to carry out beta testing.


This what Alan Tan who’s currently beta testing the Maxis FTTH is getting. WOW! …. Sigh… I want, I want.

According to Alan, he’s experience so far has been good. Awesome torrenting speeds ( at 600 kB/s, I guess no fair policy yet) andĀ  fluid HD video streaming without a glitch.

I’ve not heard any performance related details about TM’s FTTH so far. With TM you can never be optimistic, based on my experience with them so far nothing has ever been what it was supposed to be. When you have to go to MCMC to sort out a 1Mbps line, you know they suck.

TM is the backbone, they have the money which gave them some advantage before but now the competition is getting fierce with otherĀ  wireless, fiber and ADSL providers coming into the picture. Hopefully they don’t get served.

YouTube goes 1080p HD this week

YouTube announced that it’s rolling out support for 1080p HD format this week. Up till now YouTube only went up to 720p but now it’s going further with 1080p.

What about all the current HD video already re-encoded into lower quality formats you ask? YouTube plans to re-encode all HD video previously uploaded by users into the correct HD formats.

Like many other Malaysians I’m not too excited about this. We here still don’t have the bandwidth or the low latency required to enjoy fluid streaming. Sigh…..

Watch [ THIS VIDEO or THIS VIDEO] to get a taste of 1080p on YouTube.
