"We are indeed very honoured and proud to once again be recognised as the Telecom Service Provider of the Year, for the 3rd time! 2013 was yet another incredible year for TM, not only in terms of performance, but more meaningfully in terms of the continued support and commitment we receive from our customers, our people - who have worked tirelessly to elevate the Company to where it is now - and indeed all our stakeholders, on our ongoing journey of transformation," said Bazlan.
"This award is dedicated to all of you. We at TM remain steadfast in our commitment as Malaysia's Broadband Champion by continuing to provide holistic broadband services to the nation across all segments and locations," he said.
"We are honoured to have been given the opportunity to prove ourselves as a trusted partner in national development time and again, most recently having delivered with global acclaim on the HSBB Public Private Partnership (PPP), as well as the expansion of Malaysia's regional connectivity via our extensive network of submarine cables and global points of presence," Bazlan said.
"As an Information Exchange, we are able to provide the platforms that are needed by our customers to make their lives easier," he said. "These platforms include the Next Generation Network (NGN), data centres, cloud platforms, wireless technology and global connectivity with a choice of speeds and bandwidth."
"We are now building on this vision to also include an Innovation Exchange, where we will be in the best position to provide the right content and applications for our customers. These two important concepts of Information and Innovation Exchange are what will help TM deliver 'Life and Business Made Easier', our brand promise," Bazlan said.
