Fahmi: New Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing to enable broadband services offered at lower prices

KUALA LUMPUR,. The implementation of the new Mandatory Standard on Access Pricing (MSAP) effective March 1 saw broadband service prices set lowered compared to the earlier MSAP.

Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil said for example, the price for wholesale high-speed broadband services with a speed of 100 Mbps in the new MSAP for this year is RM254.64 per month compared to the previous price of RM515 per month.

“As such, it can reduce cost to the recipient of access services involved in providing fixed broadband services to users.

“Indirectly, services provided to consumers at the retail level can be offered at a lower and more competitive price or at a higher speed,” he said during Minister’s Question Time at Dewan Rakyat today.

He was replying a question by Khoo Poay Tiong (PH-Kota Melaka) who wanted an explanation about the new MSAP which came into force on March 1 2023 and its impact on the telecommunications sector and consumers in Malaysia in terms of service quality. – Bernama
