Given that Kuala Lumpur is our country’s capital city, many assume that the city would be home to the best facilities and services in Malaysia.

While that would be true in most cases, such as how Kuala Lumpur has the most skyscrapers in Malaysia and Southeast Asia, the capital city is actually not the Malaysian city with the fastest average mobile internet data speed, as the honour actually goes to Johor Bahru!
