Now Unifi Basic is available to everyone

Posted:  August 29, 2018   By:    32 comments   


Unifi Basic was definitely one of the most interesting plans TM revealed during their big announcement back in July. I’d say it’s definitely in the top three because it made Unifi more affordable and more accessible to a much larger pool of people. However, the thing about Unifi Basic was that it came with an income requirement which certainly limited its adoption potential.

Today though, there is good news for those who were looking forward to the affordable Unifi Basic plan but wasn’t within the income bracket, because TM’s just announced a big change to the entry-level fibre plan.

At the company’s Financial Results announcement today, TM revealed that they will be extending the Unifi Basic plan to everyone beginning September 2018. That means this plan is no longer exclusive for households with income of less than RM4,500 per month.

To recap, the Unifi Basic plan is a broadband-only plan that offers users a 30Mbps fibre broadband connection (30Mbps down, 10Mbps up) for RM79/month. The plan doesn’t come with add-ons like a voice call plan (calls will be charged at RM0.20/min, you’ll have to buy your own phone) nor does it come with the company’s IPTV offering Unifi TV.

What’s more, unlike the other Unifi broadband packages, Unifi Basic comes with a 60GB quota, after which your speed will be throttled to 128kbps. For more information on this, click here.

In a world where we see so many Malaysians calling for affordable fibre plans, this is great news and we’re pretty stoked that TM has removed the income restriction. This opens up the plan to so many more people and that’s always a good thing.

Malaysia has been going through a bit of a fibre broadband revamp lately and it all started with TM’s big announcement in July where they announced free speed boosts (Unifi Turbo), upgrade options for Streamyx users and the all-new Unifi Basic plan. Then, Maxis came along and updated their MaxisONE Home Fibre options with much lower prices, especially on their unlimited 30Mbps entry-level plan which is now offered at just RM89/month.

The only big player we’ve yet to see make a move is TIME. After their open letter and congratulatory post to TM where they told everyone to “stay tuned”, we still have not seen any new plans or updates from them.

For RM10 more, you'll get unlimited quota from Maxis for the same speed. That's a no brainer.

    1DuMB

    TM as physical fiber and exchange owner, will ensure Maxis subscribers have many DC and slowest ping every hour every day. Mark my words.

    Fibremore

    There is a catch of course. Certain website for movie downloads etc are restricted where only unifi will have zero filter to most of the movie and special website

Good good let the Rakyat enjoy !!!

kampungBoi

if kampung no fiber optic, still cant apply rite?

    soyacincau

    This is a fibre broadband plan. You can apply if there are available ports in your area.

      Huh

      What do you mean we can apply for a fibre plan with unifi when there is no fibre optic infrastructure in the areas?

        Pandaigiler

        Kalau dah takda fiber tak payah nak tanya pasal unifi lagi

Nojib

Does this plan need 24 months contract too?

    soyacincau

    All Unifi Fibre broadband plans come with 24 months contract.

TM tries to bite back….

Kena kencing

Ha ha, finally TM saying to gov, see I already drop price & increase speed mah… You never say quota tingy what… I follow your requirements liau…

Then if ppl wanna subscribe Maxis, Kena oohh sorry your area no port… In the end TM still win…

You don’t believe go check, I sudah kena…

    M.K

    Whenever Unifi has available port, Maxis should have too. Unless there's waiting list in Unifi application.

    > Then if ppl wanna subscribe Maxis, Kena oohh sorry your area no port…

    Same here, got the no-port response from Maxis also because there is no Fiber infrastructure at my high rise

HuAwei P20 Pro is better than Unifi

    kesmabok

Aniki Tan

Thanks to Maxis and they change their mind lol~
But still Maxis better with unlimited quota as compare to TM 60GB.

    MonopolyBusiness

    But if your Maxis home broadband package tight with Astro, they won't offer any lower rate.

your move TM

better go for maxis fiber to home.. at almost the same price, u get the same speed with no caps.

What the Fiber

Good luck TM if this is the best you can do. Many of your smart customer will change to Maxis. Wat for pay more for overpriced turbo unifi with useless hypp tv.

swan

when you hire someone with droidfarks IQ, you come out with this stupid plan

no turbo upgrade = Hi maxis

Noob

Realize you will lose the customers? Then implement “open to everybody”??

Sorry.. this crapy advertising ONLY available for TM.

Zaryl

if only the existing Unifi package can remove the useless Hypptv and can save some money for the customers. we only want data but with UNLIMITED quota & ULTRA HIGHSPEED broadband.

Not UNLIMITED quota but with LOW SPEED broadband like some other telcos.

WHO

WHEN CAN APPLY?

Juya

They said to change to unifi, but my place still don’t have any coverage yet.

Why they didn’t reduce the streamyx’s prices though, I can’t stand to pay RM160 for 8Mbps every month. Not worth it.

    Eason47

    160 for 8mbps?!

    Try to ask for discount in 100 or TM office…
    Mine initially was 140 becomes 130 after discount….(which is still expensive anyway)

data eater

Dear Soyacincau …just now ive been to their unifi website…there two Unifi Basic Plan where one plan is Mobile(60GB) plan and another in Fibre plan(unlimited) both at RM79.00…….Do The FIbre plan open for all or just B40?

DontPlayAFool

So bascially TM just acting like they're really doing something just to show to the Government. So if our new government can't even sense that, perhaps they won't be able to continue serving us after the next Election. Please la BUKA your eye Bright Bright…all these company that provide worst service's company just kick them off, get more foreign company that can do good things. Or get another company up instead of let them monopolize the market.

UB40

No more B40. Now open to all rakyat.
