Communications Deputy Minister Teo Nie Ching today announced in Parliament that the new Mandatory Standards for Quality of Service (MSQoS) for wireless broadband will come into effect this 1 April. The new MSQoS dictates that the average download speed must be at least 7.7Mbps. 

As reported by Bernama, Teo said that this is part of her Ministry’s efforts to improve internet service quality in Malaysia. Accordingly, the MSQoS is also set for a minimum of 10Mbps starting in 2025 by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).

Currently, the Communication Ministry requires not fewer than 90 service test samples to achieve a download speed of 2.5Mbps or higher. Starting next month, the average download speed must not be below 7.7Mbps.
