Currently, the MSQoS only requires wireless broadband service providers to achieve an average download speed of 2.5Mbps and above. The average speed is determined by at least 90 service test samples by MCMC.

Teo, who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Kulai, said the above in a reply to a supplementary question from Kuala Krai MP Abdul Latiff Abdul Rahman about the Communications Ministry’s strategy to resolve internet service quality issues in the country, especially in Kelantan.

The original question to Teo during the Dewan Rakyat seating yesterday was from Tanjung Manis MP Yusuf Abd Wahab who wanted to know the telecommunication and internet coverage in Tanjong Manis, Sarawak.
