The launch venue will be open to the public from 7:00 p.m. onwards and the HSBB showcase and interactive exhibitions will remain at Dataran Merdeka until Thursday evening, 25 March 2010. These showcases will feature rich multimedia applications for entertainment – including interactive games and IPTV.

To mark the countdown to 24 March 2010 in a grand manner, the entire Menara TM will be lit up every evening starting from 18 March 2010 with a graphical countdown projection beam depicting the number ‘1’ of 1Malaysia leading up to the gala launch date.
The Prime Minister YAB Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Razak will be the guest of honour at the main event in Dataran Merdeka on 24 March 2010, when he will launch both the National Broadband Implementation (NBI) initiative and TM’s next-generation HSBB service — which is also one of the NBI’s flagship initiative.
The NBI launch will feature a live crossover feed to Sarawak, while TM will be unveiling the new branding for its HSBB service. The HSBB retail offering will comprise triple-play services of voice, video (IPTV and Video on Demand), and High Speed Internet starting from speeds of 10Mbps and upwards.
