Unifi turbo-boosts plans up to 10x speed, 800Mbps for free

TM unifi turbo plan

As announced during its 3 July special media briefing, Telekom Malaysia revealed more details about its new unifi broadband plans today. The new broadband and mobile plans are part of its objectives to boost its market leadership position and deliver on the nation’s broadband aspirations to increase and improve internet access to all Malaysians.

Turbo-boosting broadband

Let’s not deny this. Some consumers are obsessed with speed. Heeding this call, TM is turbo-boosting broadband speeds by up to 10 times, starting 15 August 2018. For existing users, speeds will be bumped up at no extra cost while new customers who sign up before 31 December 2018, will enjoy the speed upgrades in phases beginning 2019. This covers over 800,0000 unifi Home customers.

Who would have thought unifi was capable to go beyond 100Mbps, eh?

  • 20Mbps – 100Mbps

  • 100Mbps – 800Mbps

If you’re not yet a unifi customer, you’re encouraged to sign up via unifi.com.my starting 15 July 2018.
