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.
UPDATE: We’ve updated the comparison to include TM’s new 100Mbps UniFi Pro plan.
UPDATE 2: Celcom’s Home Broadband joins the fray.
After the initial telco price war, it seems the battle has spilt over into the realm of fixed broadband services as the big-three fibre broadband service providers in Malaysia clash. The question is, which one is the best for you?
Don’t worry because, as usual, we’ve got you covered.

Want blazing fast internet? TIME has revamped their Home Fibre Broadband offering with even faster speeds up to 500Mbps. At RM299/month, TIME’s latest offering is significantly cheaper than Maxis’ Fibre Internet that offers 100Mbps for RM398/month.
Time has recently introduced its new Fibre 100Mbps Home Broadband that’s offered at only RM179/month. At 100Mbps, this is the fastest home fibre offering at the moment, beating the rest of the fibre players right now. Unlike the rest which offers unlimited quota until futher notice, the Fibre 100Mbps Home Broadband offering is limited to 100GB per month.
Based on their FAQ, there’s no installation or deposit charges for now and only monthly subscription fees apply. The subscription comes with a Cisco router and a free DECT phone. Just like other fibre plans in the market, the plan is tied with 24 months contract.
The high speed fibre comes with its own limit as well. Once the 100GB quota is reached, the download speed will be throttled to 1Mbps. To regain full speed, Time is offering quota top ups below:
1GB – RM10
5GB – RM25
10GB – RM50
Just like other Home Fibre offerings, Time also offers voice calls which are charged at 15sen/min. For those that make regular calls each month, there’s the Add-On Voice plan which bundles RM15 worth of credit and a lower 10sen/min call rate for just RM10/month. The voice plan also offers a low 8sen/min call rate to selected IDD destinations.
For users that use more than 100GB per month and need volume rather than speed, Time also has the Unlimited Home Broadband plans which comes with unlimited quota. Price starts from RM129/month for 8Mbps, all the way to RM399/month for 50Mbps. If you have the sudden need for speed, there’s a special 50Mbps boost option that’s being offered for plans below 50Mbps. Each month, you can have 30 hours of boost speed and if you need more, it can be purchased at RM10 for 2 hours, RM30 for 8 hours and RM50 for 20 hours.
Time Fibre is available at selected high rise residential condos and office buildings in the Klang Valley. You can check if your place is covered here.

We’ve once again reached that time of the year where we look back at the past eleven months to see what a year it has been. For us at SoyaCincau.com, 2011 has been a year filled with amazing gadgets and innovation. The mobile scene has progressed so much in such a short time span that you can’t believe how much the game has moved on since a year ago.
In Malaysia, we see more interest from prominent brands like Samsung, Sony Ericsson, HTC, Nokia and BlackBerry as they identify Malaysia as a key market. As a result we see more devices being launched in Malaysia much earlier than – or at the very least at the same time as – other countries. We see this trend continuing for 2012 as Android gains traction and makes inroads in the minds and hearts of Malaysian consumers outside of urban areas and the demand for smartphones increases and prices drop.
Microsoft’s Windows Phone has got to be, in our opinion, one of the biggest lost opportunities for 2011. As a mobile platform, Windows Phone has loads of potential but the lack of a concerted and synchronised market awareness effort from Microsoft and manufacturers has resulted in the platform being an unknown in the country. As a result of that, retailers have seen very little interest in Windows Phone devices.
Having said that, Nokia is set to launch its range of Lumia devices that run on Windows Phone in Malaysia sometime before the first quarter of next year. With a strong brand presence in the country, Nokia could just be what Windows Phone need to gain some mind share in Malaysia. But make no mistake, the Nokia Lumia devices are not magic bullets and Microsoft can’t depend on Nokia alone to solve the lack of awareness for its mobile platform. More needs to be done on Microsoft’s side to educate and drive conversation on the strengths and advantages of Windows Phone.
Speaking of which, TIME magazine has released its top ten lists of everything for the year. Naturally, the list of Top 10 gadgets for 2011 is something we are all very interested to see.

With its brilliant super AMOLED screen, speedy processor and awesome graphics capability the Galaxy S delivered performance a level higher than current crop of Android devices and — to a certain extent — even more than the ubiquitous iPhone.
Interestingly, the Galaxy S is listed well above the iPhone 4 which itself is listed below the Nexus One. So what does this tells us? It appears that 2010 is the year that Google’s Android becomes a legitimate contender in the mobile OS arena to formidably battle against the mighty iOS.
The question now is, will the Nexus S be able to maintain the momentum?
Head on after the jump for the full list.
To geeks and gadget junkies alike this is probably one of the most interesting lists this year.The TIME 100 gadgets of all-time lists gadgets from all the way back to 1923 — the year the iconic magazine began publication.
