Telecommunications conglomerate TM announced in a media briefing yesterday, 3 July, that it will be introducing a new Unifi plan later this month. The price tag?

Less than RM100.

An entry-level broadband plan specially targeted at the bottom 40% household income group (B40), it comes with 30Mbps speed and will cost under RM100.

The B40 bracket refers to Malaysian households earning RM3,900 a month or less.

In comparison, TM said the price of this plan is 40% lower than the current 30Mbps package, which is currently priced at RM179

Unlike the current 30Mbps package that comes bundled with a fixed phone line and Unifi TV, the new plan will only provide broadband connection alone, reported.

The specifics are scarce at the moment, but TM said more details on the plan will be made available on 12 July, with registrations opening at Unifi's website for early bookings on 15 July.

Apart from the budget plan, TM will also be offering a new range of "Turbo" packages with promises to double up the current broadband speed

Existing Unifi users can also look forward to upgrades at more than double the speed at no extra cost starting 15 August, The Star Online said.

And if you sign up for a plan with Unifi by 31 December, your package will also be upgraded accordingly in 2019. 

TM's announcement comes after Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo's agenda to bring down broadband prices in the country by at least 25% this year end

But from the looks of it, things might get cheaper even before we see the end of 2018.
