Malaysia : TNB Broadband Speed Up Over 900Mbps
Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), a major electricity supplier in Malaysia, has been found to make bandwidth testing at over 900Mbps. When announced early last month, a total of 1,100 homes in Jasin, Melaka were chosen as a pilot project.
The internet speed using TNB’s broadband is shared on twitter by Pos Malaysia Berhad, via the Jasin Post Office.
From the tweet, it shows 953Mbps download speed and 769Mbps upload speed, with ping as low as 7ms. This speed is higher than that offered by the 800Mbps turbo plan, to the old unifi Advance 100Mbps user.
It is still too early to talk about TNB’s bandwidth capability as it is still at the testing stage. Perhaps Pos Malaysia Berhad is given priority over the speed of the internet as a business user, compared to ordinary home users.
TNB fiber optic network is part of TNB’s electricity grid. It is the telecommunications network used by TNB to launch electricity distribution across Malaysia.
According to TNB Chairman, Tan Sri Leo Moggie, this project is a platform to test Open Access concepts. It is also expected to be the catalyst for participation from new and existing broadband providers
