U Mobile has signed a collaboration agreement with TIME dotCom (Time) as part of its long-term home broadband strategy.
In a statement, the telco claimed the partnership will enable it to increase its Malaysian household reach by more than seven fold, especially those in high-rise residential areas in major cities.
This will also allow more Malaysians to enjoy U Mobile’s high-speed ultra unlimited home fibre broadband plans featuring connectivity speeds of up to 1Gbps, it said.
Wong Heang Tuck, chief executive officer of U Mobile said, “We hope to have the same kind of appeal with our high-speed fibre broadband plans.
“Our latest partnership with Time is an affirmation to our commitment as we will be expanding the reach of our high-speed fibre broadband services exponentially via their footprint.”
Lee Guan Hong, executive director of Tim,e said access to gig-speed connectivity on Time’s network has been open to Internet service providers for a while now.
“We’re happy to be facilitating the delivery of fast, consistent Internet to U Mobile’s customers.
“We’ll continue to improve on our infrastructure as we expand our coverage across Malaysia,” said Lee.
U Mobile’s partnership with Time comes after its partnership with Allo Technology, a subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional, which took place last year.
