comments


TMnet Streamyx

Wired

Currently has the most users.




Jaring Broadband Wired/Wireless


Wired/Wireless

Limited coverage areas.



Time Broadband


Various

Service satisfactory in limited areas that are covered. Many different packages available.



Airzed WiMax


Wireless

Currently rolling out in stages, website lists as coming soon.


DiGi Mobile Broadband


Wireless

Coverage is quite wide due to utilization of existing EDGE mobile network.


Nasion 1 Wireless Broadband


Wireless

Appears to be a boutique player for providing high-end corporate broadband services.


Maxis Wireless Broadband

Wirelesss

Somewhat limited coverage. See discussion at USJ.com.my
Bandwidth capping, not P2P friendly.


Maxis 3G


3G

Maxis vs. Celcom 3G coverage commentary available at MyPDACafe.



Celcom 3G


3G

Widest 3G coverage so far. Maxis vs. Celcom 3G coverage commentary available at MyPdaCafe


Smart Ku-Band

Satellite

Uses satellite dish receiver similiar to Astro, but bigger. Expensive. Competes with Streamyx in Sabah/Sarawak and low population density areas in Malaysia.


Smart C-Band


Satellite

Uses satellite dish receiver similiar to Astro, but bigger. Expensive. Competes with Streamyx in Sabah/Sarawak and low population density areas in Malaysia.


EB Technologies MyWave24


Radio/Wireless

Billed by hour using prepaid cards - this is a hotspot service, not a residential one.


EB Technologies Residential / Commercial


Wireless/Wired

Package structure is confusing. From what I can tell, they offer both Wireless and Wired versions of their service.


PenangFon

Wired

Seems like a good service, but its Penang only.


AtlasOne

Wireless

Limited coverage area.


MyKris


Wireless

Official website is quite useless, hard to use and doesn’t have information about the service. Price was gotten from an e-mail from a customer service rep.

More information at this forum discussion.
Service quality debatable - comments are either saying its very good or very bad.


ZapZone


Wireless

Extremely limited coverage - Only 20 locations throughout Malaysia.


GoLightSpeed

Wireless

Available in limited areas. Seems to be in pre-registration mode.


IM Wirefree Broadband

Wireless

Coverage available in Klang Valley. PC Card costs RM1000.
