In this E-era,Internet is forming as a second world for most people to work,study and entertain etc.It should remain as free and open so that every people has their rights to live in this world.However,recently some governments want to break it.They want to set some boundaries and limitations to it.As people who love freedom,I support Google to stand out and encourage people to vote for a free and open Internet by our own.The event has started and you could vote for it too.
Please add your voice there to support a free and open Internet.It’s supporting your future too.
In the past several weeks,quite a number of U Mobile users complained about the slow speed of network.Some people said that the ISPs in Malaysia always did like that-good at the beginning and turning to be worse and worse till the end.
Well,U Mobile is approving that they are not like that.The speed in many areas has been improving dramatically and even better than before.Therefore,I guess the service downgrade was because of the upgrade work doing during that period.
According to my recent tests,I could get more than 2-3Mbps(more than 4Mbps at midnight) for download and 1.5Mbps for upload when I was travelling along old Klang road;at the same time,I tested the speed on DiGi network and only got 500Kbps for download and 120Kbps for upload.
As a new mobile service company,they’re doing great.Of course,they also have a long way to go,such as expanding 3G service area,enhancing their customer service quality and support special code message etc.I’ll be keeping eyes on them.
1st Malaysian-ASEAN Regional Bloggers Conference held in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia earlier today.Given a speech in the conference,Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak stressed again that current government of Malaysia will not intend to censor the Internet.
The points are:
Malaysian government is willing to build an open and digital democracy of society and it’s on the way to go.
Malaysian government is keeping to develop Multimedia Super Corridor which was initiated by former Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir.
Malaysian government is hoping to treat the bloggers as partners to move forward together,not as enemies.
Malaysian government is looking forward to seeing that bloggers could treat government fairly to make comments online.
Malaysian government is helping doing further investments on high speed broadband services to eliminate the digital gap.
Could the promise be trusted?Well,as it is a public speech that most people now hear it,I don’t think the government could change their principle so easily.Do wish to see a much open Malaysia soon!
