Malaysia’s Telekom launches high-speed broadband
Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) has finally launched the highly anticipated next-generation high-speed broadband (HSBB), UniFi, since it was announced two years ago, reported the StarBiz.
TM’s UniFi HSBB packages comprise triple-play services of high-speed Internet, video (IPTV) and phone, with speeds of 5Mbps, 10Mbps and 20Mbps.
TM chairman Datuk Dr Halim Shafie said: “Now that UniFi has arrived, we anticipate it will be a digital lifestyle changer as well as enabler for the vast majority of our subscribers.”
“I’m trully excited at this next phase of growth for TM where we are aiming to take our services to the next level,” he said at the launch Wednesday.
The 11.3 billion ringgit project, signed in September 2008, is a public-private partnership agreement between TM and the Government to develop next-generation HSBB infrastructure and services for the nation.
TM is putting up 8.9 billion ringgit while the Government is co-investing 2.4 billion ringgit (1$=3.4 ringgit) on an incurred claims basis based on project milestones reached by TM.
By end-2012 – in accordance with the completion of the first phase of the national HSBB project roll-out as agreed with the Government – about 1.3 million premises will have access to the HSBB services.
The launch was officiated by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin.
