TM’s telecommunication offering will be complete with the launch of its new 4G mobile service that’s happening on 13th April. At the moment, they have a triple play lineup with Fibre Internet, voice services and a formidable IPTV offering. Having a mobile service will be the final piece of the puzzle as TM will be able to cover users both at home and while on the go.
According to TM’s group CEO Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa in an interview with TheStar, it’s going to be exciting and they are on track to roll out its mobile service through P1.
For a long time now, the 4G operator scene in Malaysia has been dominated by four companies — Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. However, at the end of last year, we reported that there would be a new player entering the scene in 2016 and it seems this could be it.
UPDATE: TMgo Unlimited Postpaid Plan is available at limited areas. More details after the break.
TM is going big on 4G LTE this year. Before they launch their all-new mobile service via P1, TM is currently offering 4G LTE broadband through TMgo. Prior to this, TMgo is available only as a prepaid service and you can sign up for it with a USB dongle or a 4G MiFi hotspot device.
If you’re looking for something more permanent for the home, it appears that TM is now offering a postpaid plan that comes with unlimited quota. Sounds like the perfect plan if you can’t get streamyx or Unifi at home.
The mobile industry is a booming one, with more and more industry players want to get a slice of it, be it manufacturers or telco providers. Set to be the latest horse to enter the race, TM is setting its sights on a 2016 entry into the mobile telco industry in Malaysia. This will complicate things, to say the least, for the existing four players – Maxis, Celcom, Digi and U Mobile.
TM’s LTE broadband service, TMgo has expanded its wireless footprint to 7 more states including East Malaysia. The new broadband service uses 4G LTE on 850MHz frequency was launched a few months ago with Kedah and Melaka as initial service area.
So now they have a total of 9 states covered which includes Kedah, Kelantan, Melaka, Negeri Sembilan, Pahang, Perak, Sabah, Sarawak and Selangor. In Sarawak, they are now available in Kuching, Kota Samarahan, Sri Aman, Sibu and Mukah. Meanwhile in Sabah, they cover Kota Kinabalu, Menggatal, Kinarut, Papar, Beaufort, Sandakan and Tawau.
Like most wireless broadband service, TMgo offers both single user USB Modem as well as a MiFi Hotspot starter packs. It is charged on a prepaid model and they offer a variety of data packs from 1GB for RM10/week to 6GB for RM50/60 days. Its expansion from 2 to 9 states in just a few months is quite fast. Some parts of Johor such as Pontian and Kota Tinggi are covered too according to their latest coverage map.

Telekom Malaysia has officially launched TMgo, marking its foray into the 4G broadband space. This is a technology refresh of its earlier CDMA offering which aims to provide faster broadband across different segments.
