Malaysian Broadband

Malaysia is planning on fast broadband and IT infrastructure, notes James Seng. Malaysia is aiming at broadband in use in 75% of households by 2010.

Meanwhile, the U.S. seems to be heading for control of speed and use of the last mile by a small number of big telcos, with speeds less than a tenth of what Malaysia is aiming for.

James remarks that Malaysia’s plan looks like Korea’s. In other words, like a plan that’s already working in another country.

Funny what can be done when a country decides to actually do something instead of squabbling.
