Malaysia has a pretty good network of telephone lines. Apart from fixed
landlines, mobile phones too, are a great hit in the Malaysian market
like any other place in the world. While making calls from Malaysia to
any other country, you have to add the international access code (00),
country code and area code before dialing the requisite number. The
country code for Malaysia is 60.
To call within Malaysia, you have to add area code before the phone
number. Another option is you can buy international calling cards from
general stores, news-stands and petrol stations which would definitely
be cheaper. Public phones, which require coins or phone cards, can be
availed at high-traffic areas, like bus stations, shopping complexes and
Internet has not left Malaysia untouched by its influence. From the
crowded cities to the remotest part, Internet facility is available in
the entire nation. Most of the luxury hotels have access for their
guests in the business center, though the charges could be high. If you
don't find any internet café yourself, don't fail to ask the
local tourism information office to get an idea about nearby places.
They usually charge around RM5 to RM10 for an hour.
Postal Services are satisfactory in Malaysia, though not very good. For
letters, you can rely on the services, but the condition is a little
doubtful regarding parcels. You can spot post offices in every city and
town. Even for far-off countries, postal services are available but
usually people don't depend on them. It's better to take help of courier
services for sending parcels quickly within and outside the country.
