The awards were presented by YB Datuk Seri Panglima Dr. Maximus Johnity Ongkili, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation.
These two awards came almost immediately after TM’s sweep at the recent National Annual Corporate Report Awards (NACRA 2011) where TM bagged the Platinum Award for Overall Excellence category for its Annual Report while also bringing back four (4) other awards in various categories including Industry Excellence, Corporate Social Responsibility, Best Bahasa Malaysia version and Best Design.
TM also clinched “Best Wholesale Ethernet Service APAC 2011” awarded by Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) at the Carrier Ethernet Service Provider Awards APAC 2011 in Singapore. The award recognises TM’s excellence and leadership in developing Wholesale Ethernet Services in supporting the domestic carriers’ requirements in Malaysia within the Asia Pacific region including Japan, Australia and New Zealand. TM’s Network has received MEF certification earlier this year – the second in South East Asia. This MEF recognition goes beyond the wholesale aspect, and is also a statement to the quality of TM’s Metro E infrastructure, which supports all its services, including retail.
