KUALA LUMPUR, 26 APRIL 2011 - Malaysia's first multiple-play service, which includes access to voice, high-speed Internet, and multimedia content, is now available, said the country's communications provider Maxis.
"The service is available to customers in fibre connected areas nationwide." said Maxis chief executive officer, Sandip Das." For the first time in Malaysia, customers get to experience multiple-play service where they have the freedom to choose the rich content and services that they want, in the formats of their choice and be able to view these through multiple screens, be it their computers, tablets or mobile phones, at a time and place convenient to them."
"Multiple-play service refers to the many services that Maxis is offering through its Maxis Home Services from access to voice, high speed Internet, value-added services, and content. These services are made available over multiple access, across multiple screens," said Das, during the launch, which was attended by the deputy minister of Information Communications and Culture, Dato' Joseph Salang.
"Today's launch of Maxis Home Services means customers get to enrich their lives with another horizon of digital experience. Leveraging on the Malaysian government's National Broadband Initiative (NBI), we signed a landmark agreement with TM for their HSBB Access service last December," he said. "With that, we are able to expand our broadband footprint and fast track our delivery of Maxis Home Services to you. Customers in fibre connected areas, including those built out by TM and Maxis' own Fibre-to-the-Home (FTTH) built out areas, will be able to benefit from Maxis Home Services which offers High Speed Internet packages that bundles many of our existing services and complements the multitude of services made possible with fibre technology."
"The Government certainly looks forward to new and exciting developments that Maxis will bring in the area of the Home, a new digital frontier still largely unexplored in Malaysia," said deputy minister, Salang. "Maxis is a homegrown Malaysian company that does not just belong to our nation but strongly believes in its potential. We hope to see more such companies step forward to be a partner in the nation's progress, to assist the Government in bridging the digital divide."
