Cyberjaya has just launched Malaysia’s first 1Gbps broadband for businesses and homes throughout the city. This allows Cyberjaya to host a high number of users accessing multiple devices simultaneously, helping Cyberjaya achieve its envisioned Smart City status.
This high speed gigabit connection will not only encourage more creative content development, but also as a testbed for high data usage and transfer applications, turning Cyberjaya into a living lab of sorts. Multiple organizations in Cyberjaya have already signed up for the service, including the Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre (MaGIC) and the Cyberjaya University College of Medical Sciences (CUCMS). The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) have also voiced interest in the gigabit speed service.
So what’s the cost of this service? For now, the 1Gbps broadband will cost RM399 a month for homes, and RM3,499 a month for businesses.
