Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) that its High Speed Broadband (HSBB) service, UniFi now has a total subscriber base of 200,000 nationwide, passing the mark set for year-end target.
UniFi is currently available at 77 exchange areas with more than 1.09 million premises passed. The areas include the 61 in the Inner Klang Valley as well as Nusajaya in Iskandar Malaysia and industrial areas around the country including 8 in Johor, 3 in Penang, 2 in Kedah, 1 in Perak, 1 in Negeri Sembilan and 1 in Melaka.
TM said it is on track to increase the UniFi service coverage to a total of 78 exchange areas covering 1.1 million premises passed by end of 2011 and 1.3 million premises passed by the end of 2012.
In a statement, Dato’ Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa, Group Chief Executive Officer, TM said, “We are very happy to note that our UniFi service has reached 200,000 subscribers from the 77 coverage areas and achieving this milestone in only 1 and a half years since its launch is definitely another commendable development in the roll-out of the HSBB project. This also shows a faster take-up rate indicating excellent operational effectiveness as compared to our Broadband to General Population (BBGP) service, Streamyx, where we took 3 years to sign up 200,000 subscribers from nationwide availability. TM’s ever-growing and ever-expanding UniFi subscriber base and coverage area is in line with TM’s position as Malaysia’s broadband champion and leading New Generations Communications provider. We are certainly pleased with this progress and are very grateful to our customers for believing in us in delivering an enhanced and integrated digital lifestyle to their homes.”
