TM inks Mou with housing developer to provide high speed broadband

SUNGAI PETANI (Jan 10): Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) and a service agreement with Chinhinhome Sdn Bhd, to install its high-speed broadband service, UniFi, in housing projects to be undertaken by the company.

House buyers in projects undertaken by Chinhinhome will enjoy high-speed Internet, phone and Internet Protocol television (IPTV) using fiber optics.

Speaking after the signing ceremony on Jan 10, Kedah/Perlis TM Manager Noor Lela Baba said the MoU was the best way to create synergy between TM and dynamic housing developers in providing benefits to house buyers and residents in the state.

"This agreement is being inked at the right time given the keen interest expressed by house buyers and users. This is also in tandem with the government's aspiration to increase broadband penetration in the country.This is the third such collaboration that TM has entered into in the Kedah/Perlis area after Eupe Corp Bhd and Paramount Property Development Sdn Bhd," she told reporters, adding that TM hoped to emulate the effort with other housing developers in future.

Noor Lela said UniFi's service currently covered 94 areas and 1.32 million premises including economic and industrial zones in the Klang Valley, Cyberjaya, Putrajaya, Kulim Hi-Tech Park and Iskandar Malaysia.

"In Kedah, UniFi is available in housing estates and the industrial area of Kulim Hi-Tech Park, Sungai Petani, Ria Jaya and Bakar Arang. "Overall, UniFi has 490,000 customers, nationwide, and more than 1,700 in the state," he added - Bernama
