Malaysians will be pleased to know that TM's UniFi is now offering free WiFi at 5,800 hotspots nationwide until 31 December 2017
This was unveiled by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak at the launch of TM's "i-foundit!" app yesterday. The app will enable all Malaysians to access the Internet via [email protected], previously known as TM WiFi.
In conjunction with the launch, Najib also announced that charges are waived until year-end. After 31 December, users will be charged 10 sen per hour for data usage over the app.
Najib added that the launch is part of TM's answer to the government's call for better and faster Internet connectivity in the country
"We were even talking about internet data at double the speed and half the price, which TM says they can deliver soon, by 2019," said Najib as quoted by NST.
As of the second quarter this year, TM had 2.36 million broadband customers, of whom over one million are UniFi customers.
The app automatically locates WiFi hotspots and connects its users to them
There will also be two new UniFi packages designed specifically for students and entrepreneurs
The packages will be offered via three different plans with ICT features to cater the needs of online businesses as well as e-learning. The company is expected to reveal more on the packages in a separate event.
