TIME Broadband Fibre Update

I'm sure those who are living in the Gold Triangle will be happy to hear this news as TIME will be increasing their coverage especially for those who are not in the coverage area.

At least they have another alternative other than Streamyx and Unifi.


"Malaysians have always been crying out for fast, reliable internet" said self professed UniFi fan and TIME CEO, Afzal Abdul Rahim. Yesterday, Time dotCom Berhad (TIME) announced that it's 100% fibre network is in service at 30,000 homes and offices across the Golden Triangle and Mont Kiara with 16,000 more to be connected in the next few months.

TIME also announced their 100% fibre-based product packages for homes and businesses which promises boosted speeds of up to 50Mbps for a certain amount of hours per month. Customers have to activate and deactivate the speed boost when it's actually needed and are limited to around 16 hours per month, with extra hours chargeable.

For the regular consumer, home packages start from RM99 for the 2Mbps package, allowing you 10 hours/month of boosted speeds to 10Mbps, right up to the RM219 per month for 12Mbps and 30 hours/month of boosted speeds to 50Mbps. All of the packages come with a free wireless router (with the exception of the RM99 one), free installation, no download cap (fair usage policy applies of course) and they are all under 24-month contracts.

So if you are fed up with your current provider and want to give fibre a try, TIME Fibre Broadband is currently only available in the Golden Triangle & the Mont Kiara area. If you are lucky enough to fall under the pink magenta blanket of TIME, visit their website for more info on how to register. Depending on where you are, you can get up and running in 3-7 days.

Personally, I would have loved to see an actual 50Mbps package like our neighbours across the causeway and feel that the whole concept of a Speed Boost is pretty strange and kind of like crack; Once you get a taste of that speed, it's kind of hard to go back to your single digit Mbps. Excessive speed boosting could just bring your bill way above what you expect. Perhaps in the future we'll see something from an ISP, not just TIME.
