Fastest, strongest and widest network. You’ve probably heard the same marketing slogans from telcos but which is truly the most reliable in Malaysia?
To ensure that our telcos are up to mark, MCMC had conducted an extensive network performance exercise throughout 2016. Read on to find out which telco is the best for data and voice call quality.

UPDATE: To those who were initially ineligible, you can now check your surprise!
Remember the internet speed upgrade UniFi subscribers were set to receive come 2017? After a period of silence, we finally get our first solid lead on this as TM is now letting existing UniFi subscribers to check if they are eligible for the speed upgrade or not.
Remember the 2017 Budget announcement about how everyone was getting broadband speed upgrades? No? You can read up on it here. After that announcement, TM themselves gave us a sneak peak into their master plan to carry out the initiatives set out in the Budget. The gist of it is that everyone should get a speed upgrade without paying extra.
If you were at all excited by that and want to capitalise on these free speed upgrades, this may be your last chance as TM rolls out a brand new UniFi promotion that’s valid from the 1st to the 31st of December 2016. Here’s what you need to know.
Easily one of the most exciting parts of the 2017 Budget announcement, at least as far as technology is concerned, was the part about how fixed-line broadband services like UniFi, Streamyx, Maxis Fibre and Time Broadband would be offering higher connectivity speeds for a lower price.
The announcement last Friday itself was rather vague, without the nitty gritty details on how this would all play out, so a lot was left to speculation. Now, however, TM has just given us a sneak peak into their master plan on how they’re going to put the initiatives set out in the 2017 Budget, in motion.
In conjunction with the on-going Rio 2016 Olympic Games, TM is having a HyppTV 4K Experience zone at Sunway Pyramid. As Malaysia’s official IPTV broadcaster of the games, TM wants to offer a unique viewing experience where the general public can watch the games in 4K quality between 9 to 23 August.
TM has announced that repair works on the Cahaya Malaysia submarine cable have finally completed. As a result, international connectivity to the US, North Asia and Europe should be restored to back optimum levels.

Are you planning to subscribe to UniFi? You’ll have to pay more each month as they have revised the pricing for its current UniFi Advance offering for 30Mbps and 50Mbps. When TM introduced these plans in October last year, they were offered at an introductory price of RM179/month for 30Mbps and RM229/month for 50Mbps.
Effective 1st April, the base 30Mbps UniFi Advance is going for RM199/month and if you want faster speeds, it will cost you RM249/month.
UPDATE: TIME has responded, TM bites back. Round 2…fight!
UPDATE 2: And it looks like the battle has come to an end.
While our fibre broadband service providers are locked in a battle to provide the best value, customer service and Internet speeds, the real question everyone should be asking is…who would win in a battle of wits?
Ah, I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
TIME made their move. Maxis followed soon after. Now, it’s TM’s turn to round up the trifecta of new plans with their new UniFi Pro plan that offers speeds of up to 100Mbps. As an early bird promo, TM is offering RM30/month off and you can start enjoying 100Mbps from as low as RM299/month with voice calls and IPTV bundled in.
UPDATE: We’ve updated the comparison to include TM’s new 100Mbps UniFi Pro plan.
UPDATE 2: Celcom’s Home Broadband joins the fray.
After the initial telco price war, it seems the battle has spilt over into the realm of fixed broadband services as the big-three fibre broadband service providers in Malaysia clash. The question is, which one is the best for you?
Don’t worry because, as usual, we’ve got you covered.
