The recent announcement of blazing internet speeds of up to 100gbs being made possible at Malaysian universities has got students weak at the knees. With the Malaysian Research & Education Network (MYREN-X) project in full swing, we thought it would be intriguing to explore just which universities are getting the MYREN-X treatment, and what treatment will exactly entail.

What does MYREN-X promise? According to their website, it’s there 3 goals that they have firmly in mind with the project:

  • Provides bandwidth speeds of up to 100 Gbps as connection to international gateways through [email protected] for research universities analogous to other countries.
  • Provides bandwidth speeds of up to 100 Gbps as interconnections between local research universities so that the connection can become facilitators and catalysts of further collaboration in research and educational activities

So which universities are the lucky ones who’ll be receiving this buffer-busting internet connection? A total of 20 (all) Public Universities (IPTAs) along with 4 Private Universities (IPTS) will be receiving this monumental shift in spee and the full list can be found below:
