We are sure all of you might know that Gobind Singh Deo, who is the Minister of Communications and Multimedia urges TM to provide a final solution to tackle Streamyx issue. Today during the Kembara Digital Malaysia event which held in Ipoh, TM has revealed its plan to tackle Streamyx issue.
Part of its plan is to improve its internet experience to both Streamyx and Unifi subscribers which will be starting from today until the end of 2021. The main issue TM wishes to solve is Streamyx subscriber issues. During the event, TM says it will reduce the price of its current 8Mbps plan from RM160 per month to RM69 per month.
TM says it is ready to utilize GigaWire technology to tackle Streamyx issue. At this moment, TM is working hard to migrate 934,000 Streamyx subscribers to Unifi to offer better internet experience. TM will be starting to migrate its subscribers by phases to GigaWire starting today until the end of 2021. For now, it promises at least 70% of its customers should be able to enjoy Unifi fiber-optic services by the end of 2020.
In conclusion, TM has started to migrate its users to GigaWire starting from today onwards. As the migration is phase by phase, TM expects the whole migration to complete by the end of 2021. In the meantime, TM has upgraded its Streamyx subscribers twice the current speed for subscribers in non-Unifi areas. You can find more info from here.
