MUKAH, Sept 24: Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) has expanded its high-speed broadband service, Unifi, to Mukah to help catalyse the state’s digital economy agenda.
Mukah Resident Hamdiah Bakir described the Unifi offering in Mukah as timely since the state was transforming its economy into a digital one.
“In addition, the broadband service will benefit the business and residential communities,” she said at the launching ceremony in her office recently.
Hamdiah hoped TM would not only expand its Unifi service in urban areas but to suburban and rural areas in the state too in order to bridge the digital divide.
Meanwhile, TM Sarawak general manager Jafer Sadig Abdul Latif said expansion of Unifi services to Mukah meant the folk there would be able to enjoy fully converged communications services: Unifi Broadband, Unifi Mobile, Unifi Wifi and Unifi TV.
“The availability of Unifi in Mukah helps spearhead Sarawak’s digital economy agenda, bridge the digital gap, connect people via digital connectivity, encourage online e-commerce, e-banking and e-payments,” he said in a press statement today.
He assured that TM was committed to transforming the landscape of Sarawak with advanced telecommunication services.
Key areas in Mukah enjoying the Unifi service include Politeknik Mukah, Kingwood Resort area and Menara Pehin. The service will be available in places such as Jalan Orang Kaya Setiaraja and Jalan Petanak by the end of this month.
The service will be expanded to areas like Jalan Medan Setiaraja, Jalan Tellian, Jalan Hj Latip, Jalan Kampung Pinang, Jalan Mohammad Fauzi, Taman Pelita Jaya and Jalan Mukah/Oya in stages.
“In line with the Broadband Improvement Plan, Unifi Basic is now available to everyone at an affordable price of RM79 per month, bringing Malaysia into the group of other neighboring Asian countries (other than city state countries) that offer fixed high speed broadband of 30Mbps at an affordable price,” said Jafer Sadig.
Also present at the launching ceremony was TM Sibu business head Awang Abdul Khairulannuar. — DayakDaily
