Malaysia flirts with Google over world's biggest data center


Don't make me laugh

Google will only set itself up for a big fall if they do. With horrid broadband service essentially monopolised by one company, TMnet, Google can do better elsewhere. Websites hosted on TMnet's datacenter are often down for the stupidest of reasons; they only offer 1.5mbps connection to the normal consumer and have lukewarm tech support. International connectivity is one huge problem. How can Google possibly expect such a non-committal tel co to fully co-operate with them?

Save yourself the pain, Google. Try Singapore.
