The rollout of Telekom Malaysia Bhd's (TM) high speed broadband (HSBB) service or UniFi continues to be on track with service availability now expanded to an additional 48 areas nationwide, bringing the total premises passed to more than 750,000 at the end of 2010.
“In conjunction with UniFi's phased service expansion to more areas nationwide, TM is in the midst of a more aggressive go-to-market campaign to educate consumers and attract new subscribers,” group chief executive officer Datuk Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said in a statement yesterday.
He added TM recently passed the 30,000 service subscription mark with the number of orders closed, surging to an average of 2,500 per week towards the end of last year.
According to TM, it is well on its way to meet the targeted 1.3 million premises passed by the end of 2012, after its HSBB first phase rollout is complete.
