New Straits Times - - NEWS / NATION -

KUALA LUMPUR: Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Min­is­ter Gobind Singh Deo said yes­ter­day that he hopes the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies will come up with a pro­posal on ways to re­duce broad­band prices and in­crease its speed.

Gobind said the ef­fort was to fo­cus on qual­ity ser­vices in line with the gov­ern­ment’s pol­icy to pro­vide bet­ter In­ter­net ser­vices.

“There must be a joint ef­fort on the part of par­ties con­cerned to make it hap­pen,” he said in a Twit­ter post in re­sponse to a tweet from @li­ciece.

Tag­ging the min­is­ter, @li­ciece ex­pressed his grouses against a com­mu­ni­ca­tions and In­ter­net ser­vice provider, claim­ing that it had no plans to re­vise ex­ist­ing home fi­bre plans and al­ways di­rected cus­tomers to re­fer to its web­site for de­tails.

Re­ply­ing to a tweet from Sham­suri Mo­hamed, Gobind said a dis­cus­sion was be­ing car­ried out with Telekom Malaysia on prob­lems faced by Streamyx users.

“The ba­sic mat­ter in­volves in­fra prob­lems. I hope a so­lu­tion can be found and an an­nounce­ment made soon.”
