KOTA KINABALU (July 6): Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) is committed to improving broadband services in Sabah, said its state regional director Datuk Mohd Sainal Mohd Amin.
He said TM was currently replacing its copper cables to the optical fibre type in order to enhance Internet access in the state.
“The problem of Internet access in the state is still a challenge for TM as we need time to replace the copper lines to the optical fibre type, and it is being carried out in stages,” he said in a statement on July 4.
Last Friday, Mohd Sainal had launched TM's Unifi high-speed broadband service at the Kampung Pinggan-Pinggan Internet centre in Pitas.
Meanwhile, he said the public could continue to use the services provided at the rural internet centre to adapt to the new normal such as participating in online classes.
He added that as the telecommunications backbone of the country, TM would continue to serve the people in the rural area so that they could also enjoy high-speed Internet service.
