The internet was first introduced in Malaysia in the early 1990s. With TM Malaysia launching in 1986, TM is the first company in Malaysia to provide telecommunications and internet to all the citizens of Malaysia. When the internet was first launched in Malaysia, it was a very slow startup. With the internet being very slow at first, internet usage during this time was not very popular. Only the rich could access it and the big bosses who own the biggest companies of the time could access the internet at that time. The rest of the population was only getting used to using big chunky mobile phones that were quite costly to use as prepaid sims were not the norm yet. Eventually, as the years went by, the internet became more accessible to more and more people in Malaysia. More and more people were subscribed to internet service providers such as unifi internet, maxis internet and time internet.

The development of the internet in Malaysia slowly developed as Malaysia got access to better and faster internet technologies. Since Malaysia was technically 20 years behind advanced countries like the USA, the idea of doing everything on the internet was not as popular with the citizens of Malaysia compared to the likes of the UK and Europe. Developed countries were already doing transactions and business online while Malaysia was still conducting businesses physically and in person. Only the highest government officials were doing management by using the internet in the late 90s and early 2000s.

By the late 2000s, more and more people were using internet services at home using their own personal computers and business companies were transitioning to incorporate the internet into conducting their businesses. As the internet slowly became a necessity for most people in Malaysia, it saw a huge increase in the sales of tech products including personal computers, smartphones capable of accessing the internet, tablets, PDAs, video game consoles and much more. By the early 2010s, most Malaysians were connected to the internet in some way. Most people are interconnected with each other with the rise of social media, allowing people to be connected with their daily lives in ways that were never possible before. The rise of internet movie streaming, downloading and online gameplay have also made the internet become a human necessity in this day and age.

The internet in Malaysia has also become much faster to accommodate heavy internet usage and traffic by the people of Malaysia. With the introduction of fiber internet, many people can now enjoy fast internet speeds at a fraction of the cost of what it used to be compared to the internet speeds of the early 2000s. By the late 2010s and early 2020s almost every Malaysian citizen had access to the internet. Be it from computers, smartphones, tablets, video game consoles, smart TVs or even smart fridges.

In conclusion, internet development in Malaysia had a rocky start when it was first introduced, however it became one of the most quickly developed infrastructures for Malaysian citizens. In the future, we might have even faster internet speeds or play complex games such as virtual reality massive multiplayer online games (VRMMORPG) with the much more advanced internet of the future.
