A recent signing between Malaysian telco Telekom Malaysia (TM) and real estate developer GJH Avenue will result in the first UniFi-equipped township, called Taman Paya Rumput Perdana, in Malacca.

The signing ceremony at the end of 2011 was witnessed by YB Datuk AR Ismail Othman, deputy chairman of the State Land, Finance, Economic Planning, Green Technology, Science and Technology State Committee who represented YAB Datuk Seri Hj. Mohd Ali bin Mohd Rustam, Melaka chief minister and YB Datuk Gwee Yew Kiat, chairman of The Real Estate and Housing Developers' Association Malaysia (REHDA). Rozlan Mohamed, state general manager of TM Malacca signed the agreement on behalf of TM while GJH Avenue was represented by its managing director, Yeow Ho Lock.

"The partnership between TM and GJH Avenue is indeed meaningful as it will greatly enhance TM's presence in the entire Taman Paya Rumput Perdana development area and will enable customers to experience the new era of enhanced digital lifestyle through the provision of TM's telephony and high speed broadband facilities," said TM Malacca's Rozlan Mohamed.

"With these facilities, all new Taman Paya Rumput Perdana home buyers will get immediate connectivity upon moving into their homes."

"The new housing area will be equipped with high speed broadband infrastructure, which is UniFi [TM's high speed broadband service] enabled," he said. "Residents and owners of Taman Paya Rumput Perdana Phase 1 and 2 can immediately subscribe and enjoy UniFi experience to utilise digital applications riding on HSBB infrastructure which will enhance their Internet experience, in line with the quality living and eco friendly concept."

"With this new partnership, I am proud to say that GJH has set another milestone as we are the first housing developer in Malacca to sign an agreement with TM to make UniFi available to our property buyers," said GJH Avenue's Yeow. "Under this agreement, GJH Avenue will expand the HSBB services to the newly launched development of Phase 1 Taman Paya Rumput Perdana at Phase 1 and 2, which consists of 1,637 units of bungalow houses."
