PUTRAJAYA, Jun 20 – The price of broadband in Malaysia is expected to fall by at least 25 per cent by year-end, says Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo.
This followed the implementation of the Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing (MSAP) since June 8 this year, he told a media conference after attending a post-Cabinet meeting in his ministry here today.
“The relevant parties are now in discussion on setting the wholesale price and processes which are expected to be rolled out in July or August, during which cheaper broadband packages will be offered to consumers,” he said.
He said the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had implemented MSAP since June 8, which came into effect on Jan 1 this year. “Discussions will also be held among telcos on whether rebate will be given to customers,” added Gobind Singh. — Bernama
