Telekom Malaysia (TM) is continuing the expansion of its national high speed broadband service, called UniFi, in the state of Selangor, Malaysia, following a deal with property developer Temasya Development.

Under the memorandum of understanding (MoU), TM's high speed broadband (HSBB) network will be integrated into a development project in Bandar Glenmarie, Section U1, Shah Alam, starting with Temasya (Phase 1) and Temasya Citra (Phase 2). TM will provide its high-speed Internet service - UniFi, telephony and other telecommunications services to the 60 Semi-D units of Temasya (Phase 1) as well as Temasya Citra (phase 2) housing developments.

TM Selangor state vice president Datuk Zaini Maatan, said, "This partnership is an important step towards establishing a good synergy between TM and dynamic property developers like Temasya, for the benefit of home-owners and residents in Selangor. Both parties are committed to leverage on our core competencies and strengths in providing quality homes as well as HSBB network infrastructure that supports UniFi services, based on a unique eco-friendly and beautifully landscaped housing development."

TM's Zaini and Azman Yusof, general manager, SME, TM, signed the MoU on behalf of TM while Temasya was represented by its director, Tengku Dato' Setia Ramli Tengku Shahruddin Shah and Zaini Yusoff, general manager, Central Region 3 of Temasya.

Digital lifestyle

"Every unit under the development projects will be UniFi-enabled and residents can immediately subscribe to the service upon moving into their new homes," said TM's Zaini. "With the availability of high speed connectivity, brought to you by TM, residents can leverage on high-bandwidth applications and embrace a digital lifestyle, true to our promise of 'Life Made Easier.' This is also in line with TM's aspiration to deliver an integrated and enhanced digital lifestyle to Malaysian homes."

To date, UniFi has been made available in 102 areas nationwide with over 1.4 million premises passed. In its effort to expand its service coverage, TM has collaborated with 33 local housing developers nationwide via 36 Smart Partnership Agreements for the provision of HSBB network infrastructure to the new housing developments.
