TM extends unlimited quota offer for Unifi Basic plan

In January, we mentioned that TM has offered unlimited quota for its base 30Mbps Unifi Basic Plan. Priced at RM79/month, the Unifi Basic plan originally comes with just 60GB of quota each month which isn’t great for heavy users. Now TM has announced another extension and you can continue to enjoy unlimited quota until the end of this month.

According to its latest EDM, existing Unifi Basic subscribers can enjoy uncapped and unlimited quota until the 31st March 2019. However, they also recommend that you switch to their higher 100Mbps plan (RM129/month) if you wish to continue to enjoy unlimited quota and to stand a chance to win a trip for two to the UK.

The same unlimited quota is also offered to new subscribers as well but the uncapped quota is only valid until the end of March 2019. It isn’t clear if this is the final unlimited offer and whether TM will continue to extend the promo until further notice.

At RM79/month, the 30Mbps plan (30Mbps download + 10Mbps upload) is currently one of the most affordable fibre broadband offering that’s available for the masses but many were not happy with its limited 60GB quota. Alternatively, you can fork out an additional RM10/month to enjoy unlimited quota and symmetrical speeds (30Mbps download + 30Mbps upload) with MaxisONE Home Fibre broadband.

If Unifi wants to remain competitive, they should just make this unlimited quota offer permanent. Two months ago, TM had quietly introduced several top-up options for their Basic Plan but this was removed a few days later. This include a RM10 add-on for 1GB of quota and RM50 for unlimited quota for the weekends only which are very pricey. The same retracted FAQ had also stated that throttled speeds after depleting your 60GB quota will be bumped up from 128kbps to 512kbps.
