Multiple-play service describes the many services that Maxis is offering through its Maxis Home Services from access to voice, high speed Internet, value-added services, and content. These services are made available over multiple access across multiple screens. The historic launch of Maxis Home services was graced by Dato’ Joseph Salang, Deputy Minister of Information Communications and Culture. Dato’ Joseph Salang in his speech congratulated Maxis on its achievement and said, “The Government certainly looks forward to the new and exciting developments that Maxis will bring in the area of the Home, a new digital frontier still largely unexplored in Malaysia. Maxis is a homegrown Malaysian company that does not just belong to our nation but strongly believes in its potential. We hope to see more such companies step forward to be a partner in the nation’s progress, to assist the Government in bridging the digital divide.” ?
?Speaking at the launch, Sandip Das, Chief Executive Officer, Maxis, explained, “Today’s launch of Maxis Home Services means customers get to enrich their lives with another horizon of digital experience. Leveraging on the Government’s National Broadband Initiative (NBI), we signed a landmark agreement with TM for their HSBB Access service last December. With that, we are able to expand our broadband footprint and fast track our delivery of Maxis Home Services to you. Customers in fibre connected areas, including those built out by TM and Maxis’ own Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) built out areas, will be able to benefit from Maxis Home Services which offers High Speed Internet packages that bundles many of our existing services and complements the multitude of services made possible with fibre technology.” ?
“In embarking on this transformational multiple-play journey, Maxis, Maxis customers and Malaysia join a select group of countries from around the world who are fast moving from the Copper Age to the Age of Fixed and Mobile Broadband. On this journey Maxis will deliver the best of each service category, be it news, travel, finance, entertainment, education, health, games, sports or leisure. All Maxis customers are now part of our new and historic multiple-play era, “added Sandip. ?
