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.
The 2017 Budget was just revealed by the Malaysian Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and it contained quite a lot of interesting allocations. But what about tech? Well, here’s what you need to know.

TM’s mobility brand, webe is finally available to everyone nationwide by the end of this month. The webe postpaid service was initially released only to selected TM customers on 30th June. As usual, there will be just one single plan from RM79/month that offers unlimited calls, sms and data.
TM today has officially launched webe, its digital mobility arm to complement its existing fixed broadband and convergence business. Since its
launch brand reveal on 13 April, TM aspires to do things differently, promising to reimagine the mobile space.
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.
After a long wait, Webe’s mobile network services are finally live and commercially available. The catch is that these services will only be offered to selected TM and Webe customers in the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru.
Webe is not your typical telco. When the brand was launched last month, they have introduced its webe community platform that allows you to crowd back projects for free with the power of social sharing.
Of course, most of you want to know what webe has to offer in terms of commercial 4G mobile services. If you can’t wait, webe is giving away mobile data services for a year and you have to work your way through to quality.
A new submarine cable system has gone live, named the Bay of Bengal (BBG) cable system which will link Malaysia and Singapore to the Middle East and India.
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.
