The Broadband Improvement Plan will initially benefit Telekom Malaysia's home customers in high speed broadband (HSBB) and suburban broadband project areas.
Under the initiative, the average broadband speeds for residential UniFi customers will be doubled, but for the same price.
However, Telekom Malaysia clarifies that the free upgrade was only applicable for a one time upgrade, from old VIP to new UniFi packages.
The greatest beneficiary on the upgrade will be those currently on VIP5 and VIP10 subscribers. Terms and conditions apply.
Eligible customers nationwide will begin enjoying the upgrades in stages, beginning January 2017 onwards.
In addition, Telekom Malaysia will also be introducing a new broadband package offering for non-UniFi customers in 2017.
