Digi to rely on TM’s HSBB network to expand its fibre broadband footprint nationwide

Digi can soon offer its fibre broadband service to more households in Malaysia. Telekom Malaysia through its wholesale-arm, TM Wholesale and Digi have announced a collaboration to boost nationwide broadband access.

With this collaboration, TM will provide Layer 3 HSBB network service to Digi, which will enable them to extend its footprint to more areas throughout Malaysia including Sabah and Sarawak. Digi will leverage on TM’s extensive and robust fibre network infrastructure. Early this year, Digi has announced a similar collaboration with Time to tap on their 100% fibre connection to apartments and condominiums.

TM Wholesale Executive Vice President Amar Huzaimi Md Deris said, “We are excited to establish yet another collaboration with Digi, which reflects our shared commitment of ensuring seamless, stable and always-on connectivity for Malaysians, and this remains essential to revive Malaysia’s economy post-pandemic and beyond. As the national telecommunications and digital infrastructure provider to drive the nation’s Digital aspirations, TM has always been a strong advocate of infrastructure sharing and this industry-level collaboration using our HSBB network service as the platform reiterates our commitment towards accelerating broadband adoption. As such, we will continue to play our unique role as a neutral provider by providing open access for access seekers amongst fellow industry players.”

Commenting on the collaboration, Digi Chief Marketing Officer Loh Keh Jiat said “This collaboration with TM will enable Digi to connect an additional 3 million households across the country with fibre internet services, providing more customers the option to enjoy total connectivity experience at home and on-the-go with us. We have always viewed collaborations as a positive way to deliver efficient and widespread access to Malaysians nationwide, which is even more important to support our customers’ connectivity needs during this time.”

At the moment, Digi is offering 100Mbps fibre broadband at RM130/month and 500Mbps at RM190/month. The yellow telco is also offering 1Gbps at RM290/month. If you’re a Digi subscriber, you can get additional savings if you subscribe to its higher 500Mbps and 1Gbps options.
