UniFi: A month after launch an only 900 subscribers to show for

A recent StarBiz report revealed that TM’s UniFi HSBB service has only 900 subsribers currently signed up.

Considering that UniFi is now available in Taman Tun Dr Ismail Shah Alam, Subang Jaya and Bangsar – some of Klang Valley’s most affluent areas – we think that this is rather surprising.

We know that it takes up to eight hours to install UniFi in a typical house but by our calculations, 900 subscribers in a month is not really an impressive number taking into account that TM and the government will be spending RM11.3 billon for HSBB in the hopes of covering 1.3 million households and high-impact economic areas by 2020.

Within the year TM is looking to have UniFi available Petaling Jaya, Putrajaya, Cyberjaya, Damansara, Cheras, Selayang, Puchong, Serdang, Klang, Kepong and Wangsa Maju.

Its funny how in the report, TM’s CEO, Datuk Zamzamzairani warns users to expect teething problems in the initial stages as TM is still ramping up its capabilities. Things will smoothen out after that. Perhaps he knows something that we don’t.
