12 Apr 2010

Malaysian fixed line incumbent Telekom Malaysia™ has revealed that after around three weeks of commercial activity on its new High Speed Broadband (HSBB) network it has signed up around 900 customers, the Star Online is reporting. As previously reported by CommsUpdate, TM inaugurated its new high speed service under the UniFi banner at the end of March 2010, and initially the telco’s new triple-play bundles, which include fixed line voice, high speed internet at downlink rates of up to 20Mbps, and IPTV, are available in four exchange areas: Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Shah Alam, Subang Jaya and Bangsar. TM has said that the next areas to be targeted for activation of the new services are: Petaling Jaya, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Damansara, Cheras, Selayang, Puchong, Serdang, Klang, Kepong and Wangsa Maju. By June 2010 the telco expects to have expanded to include a further 22 exchange areas, and another 22 will be added by the end of the year, with TM aiming to have around 65% of the inner Klang Valley covered by 2011. With a view to driving uptake it has also been revealed that the first 3,000 subscribers to the UniFi service will be given free access until June 2010, while TM will also waive installation and equipment fees totalling around MYR1,000 (USD314).
