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) and 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 other wireless, fiber and ADSL providers coming into the picture. Hopefully they don’t get served.
