“As broadband capacity demands continue to rise in this age of high-definition video streaming and gaming, ViewQwest is committed to offering new options to Malaysian consumers who are keen to test new possibilities beyond the familiar. In partnering with the national HSBB network, we want to reach more Malaysians who have been demanding better broadband experiences and introduce ViewQwest’s #BetterBroadband concept. With ViewQwest’s high-speed broadband services, consumers can get the very best in connectivity speeds, performance reliability, and user experience – and at competitive pricing! That is our brand promise to all Malaysians,” said Vignesa Moorthy, the Group Chief Executive Officer for ViewQwest Group.
“At ViewQwest, we are firm in our belief that reliable, truly unlimited, high-quality high-speed broadband should be a basic expectation for consumers. We talk about how fast the world of technology can move, so it should also be reasonable for broadband providers to discard the old and slow way of doing things. Our potential shouldn’t be throttled by the bottleneck of slow broadband speeds and usage limits. As providers, we should be exploring how much more we can offer to improve customer experiences. As such, we have set aside the marketplace norms of Fair Usage Policy and bandwidth management controls. Instead, we see better value in further investment into next-gen broadband systems and capabilities that will optimise our network’s performance and ensure Malaysians can truly experience our #BetterBroadband promise,” Vignesa added.
The initial 100Mbps plan will eventually be joined by ViewQwest’s 300, 500, and 800Mbps offerings, the ISP said. These faster bandwidths will roll out in stages within the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru and onwards across the entire HSBB coverage area.
