Malaysia lags behind three years of 5G internet access

The country was once shocked by the news of some students, especially in rural and rural niches who face the problem of internet achievement that risk their lives to get satisfactory access.

This problem occurs not only in the rural areas that we mostly hear about in Sabah and Sarawak, but also in the Peninsula.

For example, the media once reported the distress of three brothers in Papar, Sabah was forced to climb the hill to get internet achievements to follow teaching and learning at home (PdPR).

Students at Wallace Bay, Pulau Sebatik, Tawau had to travel about 30 kilometres or 40 minutes by motorcycle to Sungai Tongkang to find internet access.

Students in Peninsular Malaysia were unable to escape the same problem when more than 20 students from Kampung Terap Dalam, Bandar Baharu, Kedah had to look for higher or hillier areas to get internet access.

Imagine if we were in a school classroom where there were a lot of students but could still enjoy the internet fast and not get involved, surely our work would be better and productive.

It’s even more painful if any of our family members are receiving medical treatment in the ward but it’s hard to respond to their progress because the widely shared line is not smooth.

The achievement of 4G and 4GLTE internet is beyond its targeted progress and we have many locations specially the remote locations that face connectivity issues where we find poor or no connectivity.

All these achievements can be overcome if our country’s administration in some effective mandates with a clear advisory to the service providers to work in line to government initiative focusing on locations which have poor telecommunication network infrastructure and or find alternative solutions which will help achieve the government initiative also meets the service providers KPI.

It is only with these efforts we will be able to do justice to transformation in fifth-generation or 5G cellular network broadband services.

With technology evolving the service providers should look for solution that can help achieve the internet services in areas that do not have coverage.

This area without coverage occurs because the installation of fiber cannot be carried out on a number of factors such as demographics and others.

Fiber can indeed provide internet speed but it has it own challenges which involve investment, business objective, terrain, size of population and many more.

But as mentioned above that’s not the only option there are some effective solutions and business models that should be introduced for instance the public-private partnerships bringing in state administration and the service providers to work towards the state objective of ensuring adequate coverage in their region and this will not only serve the purpose of internet coverage but will help the growth of the state which will generate talents, create business opportunities, to encourage new investments which in turn will be the key factors for the state GDP and provide better life style to the community.

As the country gets ready for 5G network with some great plans from the government, but with the ongoing efforts it is clear that this delay and run the timelines Set. Looking at some of the countries around us such as Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and South Korea have made satisfactory progress in the technology whichh has enabled them to be the lead in rollout of 5G services.

Lautan Variasi Sdn Bhd is one such company who has been in business since 2016 focusing on ICT with telecommunication as it backbone.

The company focus since 2018 has been to bring difference in the country with innovation smart and innovative solutions which can help bridge digital divide and be a catalyst in providing out of the box solutions that will help the community with quality of services.

With the right team and technology, the company has been pursuing constant efforts to propose and collaborate with various state and federal agencies to provide the services and also willing to bring in the required finance for the services.

Lautan Variasi Sdn Bhd has proposed and provided pilots services for projects like 1BestariNet Program.

The Founder/Managing Director of Lautan Variasi Sdn Bhd, Datuk Syed Nasir Hussin Syed Peer has been a true visionary and has been taking lead in providing solutions that helps the national initiative of serving the underserved and bridging the digital divide by use of technology like the Satellite-based VSAT services.

With the continued vision and advice from Datuk Syed Nasir Hussin the company has being progressing since 2018 with a Year-on-Year growth traction of 20% and abovee. As the sole company in Asia and the seventh in the world to offer broadband internett services based on satellite technology, the company did not stop there, Datuk Syed explained, Malaysia isstill backwardrd, the child is still climbing trees looking for internet access.

We need to take note that this atmosphere is not happening in Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam and others.

“It is time for the 5G rollout plan to be smarter which requires 10X faster deployment and must be 50% less CAPeX . The world was once ‘locked up’ with nearly two years of movement control due to COVID-19, and depending on internet increased by many folds.

“During the testing times it was Lautan Variasi team and it partners worked day in day out locked up to come with innovative software based telecommunication solution that will support the country administration” he told

Referring to the report through OpenSignal in South Korea where they shared the experience of using 5G shows that the speed with an average of 354.4Mbps is very fast and which will benefit the country growth and its people.

5G download speeds in South Korea now average more than 400Mbps on mobile, enabling next-generation content and experiences for users such as camera variation displays for events live stream as well as vir tual reality experiences and add-ons.

In comparison according to Digital Nasional Bhd’s (DNB) statement on its upcoming 5G network online, end users with 5G devices will enjoy speeds of at least 100Mbps at the weakest level 5G coverage with predicated time line beyond 2026.

The challenging question is How fast? How much? And what all?

With our innovative solution and the ongoing plans which will not only help the fastest rollout with cheapest offering and cover range of service offering benefiting industries across, but it will also complement our competitors by sharing the same infrastructure at 1/3rd thus eliminating the redundancy and duplication of network and very much in lines to the government objective

Great, isn’t it? So is Malaysia ready to enjoy the speed of 5G internet using satellites that can reach 1 terabyte?
