KUALA LUMPUR: The merger of Jaring and TMnet is a move to pressure the Internet service providers (ISPs) to offer better services and lower rates, Energy, Communications and Multimedia Minister Datuk Amar Leo Moggie said. 

He said the general perception was that competition would cause the ISPs to provide the best service and cheapest rates but when competition was opened up the two desired effects were not seen.
