EESAT - Extensive End-Point Service Availability Testing

Overview of Quality Issues

Performance of the market in terms of quality is monitored through the existing quality of service frameworks for the mobile telephone service and fixed line service as established in the REG 001 and REG 002. The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission conducts Extensive End-point Service Availability Testing or EESAT twice a year to ensure compliance with set standards.

Quality of Service for mobile telephone service and fixed line telephone service is monitored through the standards set in the existing REG 001 and REG 002, to ensure that service providers maintain the minimum standard requirements. These guidelines were established in 1997 and measure service levels including network efficiency, coverage and complaints.

A review of the requirements of REG 001 and REG 002 is being undertaken which will take into account the introduction of new services introduced since 1997. The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission has also put into effect mandatory stardards. Failure to meet these standards can result in a fine or imprisonment.
