Malaysian fixed line incumbent Telekom Malaysia™ has officially expanded the availability of its ‘TMgo’-branded LTE-based mobile broadband service to Sarawak, the Borneo Post reports. With the company confirming the development at a public launch event at the Summer Mall in Kota Samarahan, 4G services are now understood to be available in that location, as well as Kuching, Sri Aman, Sibu and Mukah.
As previously reported by CommsUpdate, TM first unveiled its TMgo service back in August 2014, at which date it was introduced commercially in Alor Setar, the capital of the state of Kedah. In unveiling its new product offering the company said that it will initially have 17 active LTE sites in Kota Setar and Pendang, though it only offered pre-paid tariffs at launch. On the back of the service launch, TM said that the introduction of the wireless broadband service reflected its ‘continuous efforts in providing broadband services to the nation across all segments and locations, consistent with the National Broadband Plan to deliver High Speed Broadband (HSBB), Suburban Broadband (SUBB) and Broadband for General Population (BBGP) to all Malaysians’.
