TIME quietly refreshed their home fibre internet plans recently.No more slow broadband from TIME- from 100Mbps up to 500Mbps is available within TIME Fibre network coverage map,pricing from RM 149 monthly.
No doubt that it’s the best plan in Malaysia up to date. Compared to TM Unifi,you have to pay RM229 for 50Mbps download speed(20Mbps upload) and this is the fastest plan from TM now. For Maxis 100Mbps plan,you have to pay RM 398 monthly which is 2.6 times more expensive than TIME.
However,TIME still only covers limited area and most of them are high rise buildings/high density area.If you are so lucky to stay within the coverage, I think TIME is the best option for the blazing fast internet experience.You can check the coverage over here.
I just hope TIME can cover my apartment,the sooner the better.
U Mobile,as one of the youngest mobile operators in Malaysia,recently plays very actively. The Hero postpaid plan which launched months ago attracts a lot of eyeballs and this time,they introduce Hero Plus plan to give you more excitement.
As what you see,it’s actually a combination with Hero P70 plan(principle line) + Share 50 plan(member line). With this Hero Plus plan, 1 principle line and 1 member line can get 10GB shareable data and unlimited call to all lines. It allows 1 principle line to be attached with up to 3 member lines and get up to 16GB shareable data and in this case,the average cost per line will only be around RM55(if no other pay per use charges).
Frankly speaking, it’s very competitive compared with the plans offering by local big 3 mobile operators(Maxis, Celcom and Digi). What you need to consider is the network coverage. If you’re not sure of it, my suggestion is to buy a piece of prepaid SIM and test it on your phone first. That most probably could clear your doubts.
Malaysians always complain for slow broadband services,expensive bills. TM,as the ‘monopoly player’ in the country,finally introduces two new home fibre services,named as Unifi Advance Plan,to the public.
These new plans,however,unlike the existing VIP plans,provide asymmetrical speeds. For new Unifi 30Mbps priced starting from RM179 as promotion price,it’s 30Mbps for downlink,5Mbps for uplink;for 50Mbps plan priced starting from RM229 as promotion price,it’s 50Mbps for downlink & 10Mbps for uplink.
All new plans are bundled with HyppTV packs and the total price will be varied due to different HyppTV pack you choose.The details for new Unifi 30Mbps are as below:
You can enjoy free services such as HyppTV Everywhere on 2 devices,installation & Activation,DECT phone,500MB/day for TM WiFi,HyppTV set-top-box and Residential Gateway. The charge for voice call will be flat rate 20 sen/minute nationwide.
If you wanna enjoy faster speed(50Mbps download) or more premium channels or others,you could subscribe add-ons. Continue reading Unifi introduces new 30Mbps/50Mbps home fiber services with some add-ons
The battle among major mobile network service providers in Malaysia has turned to be more and more intensive. Maxis knows that it’ll be very hard to conquer,so they have to make themselves strong enough to lead the game.The first move is showing how fast Maxis could be.
Mobile data service has never been so important to the users. Thanks to smartphones. When traveling ,most people nowadays enjoy to share their wonderful moments by shooting pictures and even videos to the friends. And network speed really matters. I believe no one will feel happy when taking hours to upload one photo.
Maxis wishes to get trust from their customers about their 4G LTE network. Thus, they now set up a dedicated LIVE 4G LTE network speedometer page by updating the test results in multiply locations every 3 hours.
I hope that more mobile service providers can do the same thing so that users could utilize the info to decide which telco they might prefer.
