KUALA LUMPUR, November 17 – The Malaysian fixed-speed broadband network made a massive triple jump from 23 megabytes per second (Mbps) in January this year to 61.97 Mbps in October, standing above the global average of 50.88 Mbps.

The Internet Speed ​​Survey, conducted by The Speedtest Global Indek (SGI), revealed that Malaysia rose 10 places last month and became the 26th fastest country in the world with an average fixed speed of 61.97 Mbps.

"We just updated the Speedtest Global Index for October 2018, and last month, Malaysia has grown 10 places to the 26 fastest country in the world with an average fixed speed of 61.97 Mbps. For reference, the global average is 50.88 Mbps," the statement said .

When he first took over his position, Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo said he wants local telecommunications to increase the speed of Internet broadband access while reducing the price.

"We are considering doubling the speed of Internet broadband services, if possible. Last year there were many remarks and we hope to improve in that area," he told a press conference on his first day in May.

SGI compares data on the speed of the Internet from around the world to a monthly level. Data for the Index comes from hundreds of millions of tests made by real people using Speedtest every month.

However, with regard to the mobile broadband network, Malaysia dropped from two in October to 76 with 74 in September.

Last month, the average transfer speed of broadband Internet to 18.41 Mbps was 18.81 Mbps in September. The world average is 23.80 Mpbs.
