Hi I plan on visiting Kuala Lumpur on Nov 20 and am looking for accommodation with the fastest internet connections speeds. Am planning to stay for a month and will then head north to Thailand.

I am after internet that I can can access preferrably from my own room on a 24hr basis but am open to all suggestions that may include internet cafes etc. From the research I have conducted so far Malaysia in general ranks lower than the Philipinnes and Thailand and it seems Singapore has much greater speeds.

According to the wikipedia page here it seems that this is the quickest service:

Am after advice from travellers and locals who know how one may be able to access a fast and reliable internet solution from a hotel they may have stayed at or otherwise.

Thanks for advice.

Most internet cafes in KL are open 24/7

Well, I don't agree on this one. In general, the speed is way faster in KL compared to the Philippines and Thailand. You can compare it to western standards.

I have spoken to web developers who have lived there and now live there and it is a bit rich to say that Malaysia has western standard internet. I am going there on Tuesday and need advice on this issue.

I was not saying that Malaysia has western standard internet, I was only talking about KL.
I think you can imagine that there will be a huge difference in speed between KL and Bintulu ...
