If you’re a TM Unifi subscriber and have yet to received your “surprise” yet, you’re not alone. According to TM’s deputy CEO Datuk Bazlan Osman, the broadband speed upgrade will be done in phases according to network availability and they aim to double the Internet speeds for all UniFi customers by the end of this year.
Last week, TM revealed the first stage of their ‘Thank You Surprise’. For many UniFi customers, they were able to check if they were eligible for the free speed upgrade that was announced earlier. However, there were some who received a message informing them to check back on the 25th of January instead.
Today is the 25th of January and here’s what you’ll get. Hint: It’s not a speed upgrade.
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.
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.

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: Celcom Home Broadband is now official. Available for FIRST Gold customers in the Klang Valley only.
The fixed fibre broadband scene is heating up as Celcom joins the race with their Home Broadband service offering speeds of up to 10Mbps.
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.
