Launch of HSBB and NBI bodes well for Malaysia's global competitiveness

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia Intel Malaysia recently congratulates Telekom Malaysia (TM) for the official launch of the next-generation High Speed Broadband (HSBB) service, commending on their achievement in deploying the HSBB netowrk and infrastructure to over 300,000 premises in an impressive short period of time.

"Pricing for the triple-play services of high-speed Internet, video (IPTV) and voice is exciting. We believe this provides a significant boost to the content development industry in Malaysia. We expect the availability of more compelling and rich content will increase business opportunities, create jobs and increase broadband adoption. This raises the bar on Malaysia’s competitiveness and opens the door for further growth and investments in the country,"  said Ryaz Patel, country manager of Intel Malaysia.

Intel Malaysia also lauds the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for the National Broadband Initiative (NBI) and the Prime Minister’s announcement on the allocation of RM1 billion to provide Internet-enabled netbook computers for underprivileged students. "Technology in education is a key enabler for 21st century skills and workforce productivity," said Patel.

"With this new infrastructure and all the incentives announced yesterday, we are more bullish on achieving and even exceeding the 50% HH penetration target. The ecosystem has all the necessary building blocks to deliver.  We now have to put them in motion and execute to plan," emphasized Patel.

"Intel Malaysia is committed to collaborate with the government and industry partners to realize the country’s objective of building an innovation-driven and high income-based economy," said Patel.
