I was watching the new TM UniFi (HSBB) launch last Wednesday on my pathetic 512 MB Streamyx line and it was not a good experience. The speed was slow and they did not even announce the pricing till the next day.
Finally triple play has come to Malaysia as I was already enjoying this service back in 2006 when I was in Europe.
A summary of the TM UniFi (HSBB) Price details :
5mbps ï¿½ RM149 (60GB monthly cap)
10mbps ï¿½ RM 199 (90GB monthly cap)
20mbps ï¿½ RM249 (120GB monthly cap)
* The price above includes IPTV
More info that I got from ykl’s blog
Well, it is now confirmed that once you go over the monthly bandwidth cap, the speed will be throttled down to 10% of the advertised speed of your package. As an example, if youï¿½re on the 10mbps package, 10% would be 1mbps. The cap is spread evenly on a daily basis so if say the monthly cap is 60GB, every day you will have 2GB to download and should your data transfer exceed 2GB, there goes the throttle hammer on you.
All packages are inclusive of a DECT phone, a premise gateway (the modem/router) and a Set-Top-Box (STB). On top of that, there will also be free calls to all TM fixed lines nationwide and a very low flat rate of RM0.10 per minute calls to mobile phones and other operators nationwide.
On the IPTV service, it offers 22 linear channels, video-on-demand and interactive channels. Thereï¿½ll be 20 to 25 new titles every month in window earlier than pay-per view and pay-TV.
These channels would be delivered via an 8Mbps connection exclusively and in addition to the data speeds of 5, 10 and 20Mbps subscribers subscribed to, which is good as you don’t want your TV channels have a slower download rate.
Too bad the initial areas covered by TMï¿½s UniFi are only in the 4 exchange areas of Shah Alam, Subang Jaya, Taman Tun Dr Ismail and Bangsar. Sigh….
