TM reaches two million broadband subscriber milestone

23 May 2012

Telekom Malaysia™ has announced that it now has more than two million fixed line broadband subscribers on its books, Bernama reports. TM CEO Datuk Seri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said that the reaching of the milestone reflected increased broadband adoption in Malaysia as a whole, adding that his company’s achievements would help the government in reaching the 75% broadband penetration target set out by its National Broadband Initiative (NBI) by end-2015. ‘TM has been in the pivotal role of fulfilling this agenda as the company is currently contributing more than 40% of the national broadband penetration,’ the executive was cited as saying.

Of the two million broadband customers signed up with TM, almost 360,000 of those have opted to take a service offered over TM’s in-deployment High Speed Broadband Network (HSBB). Take up of such services – which are offered under the ‘UniFi’ banner – has continued to gather pace, and as noted in TeleGeography’s GlobalComms Database, with March 2012 seeing TM confirm that it was planning to roll out the next phase of its HSBB in second-tier industrial areas and state capitals, customer numbers are expected to climb further still.
