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.
In the ongoing war for fibre supremacy, TIME revealed its hand, offering their customers speeds starting at 100Mbps for RM149/month. That’s incredible value, something TM’s 100Mbps UniFi Pro plan (RM299/month) simply can’t match in terms of raw speed per dollar. What’s more, TIME offers speeds of up to 500Mbps compared to TM’s 100Mbps cap.
Gaining this little edge, TIME simply couldn’t resist dropping a little celebratory burn on TM with a cheeky Facebook post:
The folks managing TIME’s social media must’ve been high-fiving each other for that. A solid 6/10 on the burn scale, a much cheekier jab compared to the one they directed at Maxis. But, their celebration is short lived as TM responded in timely fashion with a jab of their own:
Granted, I believe they could’ve been more subtle and do away with the capslocked words but I think TM came out ahead here.
At the time of this article’s writing, TIME hasn’t responded yet. Maybe they’re stuck trying to come up with a witty comeback. Would any of our readers care to help them out?
In the meantime, here’s some advice for TIME:
UPDATE: TIME finally came up with a response…but it’s a little disappointing:
I don’t know about you, but I think turning something fun into something political is a pretty lame move. It’s like someone shouting “MAK KAU HIJAU“. Takes all the fun out of it.
Shortly after TIME’s reply, TM had this to say:
So, who do you think came out ahead in Round 2?
UPDATE 2: This should mark the end of this little kerfuffle:
And the winner is…?
