Fixed line incumbent Telekom Malaysia has announced the launch of its new ‘UniFi Pro Plan’, which increases the maximum downlink rate available to customers to 100Mbps. Having previously introduced download speeds of 30Mbps and 50Mbps in October 2015 with its ‘UniFi Advance Plan’, the new tariff, which includes a choice of one of the operator’s pay-TV packs and 600 minutes of free fixed line voice calls, is initially being offered at a promotional rate of MYR299 (USD76) per month for residential users, rising to MYR329 after the offer period.

Meanwhile, TM has claimed that almost 50% of its fibre-based broadband subscribers are connecting at speeds of 10Mbps or higher on the back of it introducing higher-speed services, while according to comments made by TM’s executive vice president for Consumer & SME, Imri Mokhtar, UniFi customers are now using 130GB of data per month on average.
