Jaring, which introduced the Internet to Malaysia, is facing liquidation and ignominy, and its employees are asking questions over what has happened. Karamjit Singh has the story.
On May 26, Digital News Asia (DNA) released its first Deep Dive report, which looked at the telecommunications space in Malaysia. In this article, Goh Thean Eu looks at how Malaysia intends to roll out digital TV, and why mobile telcos are eyeing the freed up spectrum.

Some doubt Puncak Semangat’s Digital TV win is a lucrative deal Sceptical telco players think it is a play for the 700MHz spectrum
In yet another major win for politically-linked tycoon Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary, his company Puncak Semangat will now own and control the infrastructure by which Malaysians will be watching their favourite digital TV programmes.
There's a new telco in town with the recent launch of Altel Communications, a subsidiary of Puncak Semangat Sdn Bhd. But the real question on most minds including DNA CEO Karamjit Singh is this: “Is Syed Mokhtar really serious about being a telco player?”
It was a low profile introduction for the Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary owned telco, Altel Sdn Bhd, one of the nine telecommunications companies with some 2.6GHz spectrum allocated for Long Term Evolution (LTE) services.
The three shortlisted bidders for the Digital Terrestrial TV Broadcasting (DTTB) infrastructure build -- i-Media Broadcasting Solutions, Puncak Semangat and Redtone Network -- have submitted their proposed business plans for a final round of evaluation by the MCMC.
