The best I could come out with was to ask them to be patient as the Government had initiated the National Broadband Project and that in a few years the whole of the Klang Valley would be wired up.
Pierre and Johann both gave me that “you got to be kidding” look. The Swiss pointed out that all towns in his home country had put in fibre optics years ago.
“They just dug and dug and wired everyone up. What are you all waiting for?” he asked.
He was “very impressed” when he first came to Malaysia 10 years ago.
“You all then had ADSL lines when we in France were still using dial-ups,” he recalled.
“But what happened? We are now surfing at real broadband speed and not the ‘best service possible’ practice as you have here in Malaysia.
“Johann, if you get 50% of the promised speed in Malaysia, consider yourself lucky.”
Of course this is Malaysia Boleh.
