My personal experience on the broadband Internet access is not so encouraging. The line was down frequently, slow and sometimes unable to log in as well. I believe the broadband services licences should be expanded to a few more companies to avoid monopoly by the current services providers which in turn will provide the required competition for better and cheaper services. I am really looking forward for the WIMAX services which is due to be launched in the coming few years.
