The Future Beckons

I had my hands all tied up these days, no thanks to the ongoing assignments and endless examinations. This will persist throughout the week and also next week. Oh boy, I really need a break from all of these.Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access or WiMax is set to make a debut in Malaysia. This has been one of the government’s effort to improve internet penetration to the mass at a very reasonable price. The project is a definite boost to propel the country towards the blurry Vision 2020. As much as I love to elaborate more on that, I wish to retain it. Otherwise I might need a pair of spectacles on that. Screw that aside, let’s talk about the players in this WiMax game (WiMax is plausible as a name of a game). Telecommunication giants were the first ones to place their bid on the limited four WiMax licenses. However the big guns were gunned down by smaller fishes. Behold Bizsurf (M) Sdn Bhd, MIB Comm Sdn Bhd, Asiaspace Dotcom Sdn Bhd and Redtone-CNX Broadband Sdn Bhd. These pioneers will have the privilege to introduce WiMax to Malaysia. Three cheers for them! This move is deemed timely as county is trying to follow suit with other developed countries. For example, WiMax had benefited San Francisco by offering city-wide wireless internet coverage – comparable to cellular communication.So what is the big boon of WiMax? To begin with, WiMax is wireless internet, similar to the Wireless Fidelity (WiFi) that we are having now. The only differences are it’s faster and the range is farther. But what makes WiMax a better alternative is that it provides cheaper internet. It only requires one wireless router to cover a very wide area of population and this brings to lower maintenance cost. Recently the government also revealed the National Broadband Plan, aiming to promote broadband usage and higher internet penetration. Under the plan, a survey was conducted to collect the rough figures of broadband users nationwide. Another incentive under this plan was the allegation of providing free internet to the cities with large number of broadband users. Thanks to this, my hometown of Miri was ambitious enough to declare itself as a cyber city as they publicize the use of broadband to the residents, in hopes of getting free internet. Everyone just love to get free stuff, don’t they? Nevertheless, once WiMax is ready to go, the conventional WiFi will be easily displaced and the future of the mobile technology is set to divert its course to a better path as the newly coveted 3G technology is sought to lose ground against WiMax.


Correction to my SPM Galore post the other day. The news about Nor Amalina being kicked out from college is nothing but a rumour. At least, I get to have all my facts checked. Thanks for mar shmar for the notice.
