Pos Malaysia just got a little more “laju”, as it is enjoying Internet speeds over 900Mbps (megabits per second) thanks to Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s fibre infrastructure.

“Pejabat Pos Jasin is powered up to 900Mbps! Kudos to @Tenaga_Nasional for its pilot project delivering broadband using its existing infra,” it tweeted, also thanking the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and its ministers.

The tweet depicted the result of an Ookla SpeedTest, showing a download speed of 935.43Mbps and upload speed of 769.9mbps.

In September, TNB announced it would run a pilot project in Jasin, Melaka, to test the viability of providing broadband services through its fibre optic network.

Its chairman Tan Sri Leo Moggie said the project would be completed by the end 2018, providing high speed broadband to 1,100 out of 4,300 houses in Taman Merbau, Taman Maju and Felda Kemendor.

He added that the initiative is part of the Government’s National Connectivity Plan (NCP), and would allow for faster, cheaper and wider Internet connectivity.

TNB claims it has an extensive fibre optic network that’s over 12,000km spanning across the nation with access to over eight million customers.
