Private Broadband

I was just thinking about it this morning. I was wondering if we could solve our streamyx sucks problem through a purely private sector initiative. Instead of being forced to lease bandwidth from Telekom, might it be possible for the private sector to lay their own pipes to the Internet and then provide broadband services independent from Telekom.

Then, I read this article on BAI – Google is laying its own pipe to Southeast Asia and Japan. The pipe will connect Singapore, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Phillipines, and Japan. When finished the SJC will provide the fastest connection in the world.

Now, I wonder if someone here will lay a pipe and connect it to the Singaporean end of the SJC. That will provide Malaysia with access to the fastest Internet connection in the world and our dreams of having high speed broad band might actually come to being.
