Onspeed Can Speed Up Malaysia's Broadband Internet Penetration

KUALA LUMPUR, March 24 (Bernama) -- Onspeed, a downloadable software programme for Internet acceleration, could help Malaysia achieve its broadband penetration target faster without substantial additional costs, says Teamwork, the company dealing with the service.

Onspeed can be used with any Internet connection in the world regardless of the users' Internet Service Provider, says Norm Hosken, CEO of Teamwork, a Malaysian-based company dealing with telecommunications services.

Hosken said Onspeed allowed dial-up connections to the Internet at five times faster without the need for additional hardware.

With Malaysia's existing dial-up subscriber base of 2.5 million, Onspeed could help the country achieve its target of 10 percent broadband penetration overnight.

Malaysia has set a target of 2008 for 10 percent broadband penetration among its 25 million population.

Costing only RM15 a month, dial-up users could use the software and see an improvement in their efficiency and productivity improve by up to 500 percent, essentially at one fifth of the cost of broadband, said Hosken.
