17 Aug 2010

Malaysian fixed line incumbent Telekom Malaysia™ has said that it expects the number of customers signing up to services offered over its High Speed Broadband (HSBB) network to more than double by the end of 2010. According to the Star Online, TM has said that since launch in March 2010 more than 10,000 customers have signed up to its ‘UniFi’ services, with the operator’s chief strategy officer Ahmad Azhar Yahya noting: ‘We are seeing a steep increase in the number of new customers signing for the service daily and the trend is expected to continue.’

The comments were made at the signing of a deal between TM and Mudra Tropika, a real estate developer, under which both parties agreed to share the cost of installing fibre-optic infrastructure in one of the latter’s most recent developments. ‘We are going to sign (similar agreements) with 19 more developers in Johor Baru this and next year to equip their housing projects with the HSSB (service),’ revealed Ahmad, adding that TM expects around 150,000 premises across Iskandar Malaysia to have access to HSSB-based services within the next two years.
