Broadband Is 'Electricity' In Digital World, Says P1 PETALING JAYA

190310 Bernama Broadband Is 'Electricity' In Digital World, Says P1 PETALING JAYA, March 19 (Bernama) ‐‐ Broadband Internet connection is "electricity" for the digital world and no longer a luxury but a necessity for everybody. People can use a broadband connection to watch movies or newscasts and even can share their views or stories around the world, as well as help the leaders to structure plans for the future of their companies, according to Packet One Network (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd (P1). "Imagine today's world without the electricity, it will be a dark, dark world. And imagine the world without broadband in the future, it is unimaginable," said P1's chief executive officer Michael Lai. "So, broadband will be an electricity for the digital world and will also be a great economic enhancer as well as a social equaliser," he said in an interview with the media here on Friday. P1, which was awarded a Malaysian WiMAX licence in March 2007, aims to bridge the digital divide by making access to the Internet universal, ubiquitous and affordable for every Malaysian. One of the top world's fourth generation (4G) WiMAX operators has managed to cover 35 per cent or equivalent to 11 million of Peninsular Malaysia's population since P1 launched its 2.3‐ gigahertz WiMAX network in August 2008.
