The HSBB service will allow P1 to also provide Internet Protocol Television (IPTV), Video on Demand (VoD) and other rich multimedia services in the future, Lai added.
"We are confident that this partnership will bring enormous benefits to all end-users, as it is in the consumers' best interest to have a range of options to choose from, based on quality of service, extent of coverage, range of features and competitive pricing to boot," said TM's Zamzamzairani.
He said that so far TM has rolled out the HSBB service to more than 1.044 million premises passed in 77 exchange areas nationwide. "TM is its way to meet the targeted 1.3 million premises passed by the end of 2012, which is in accordance with the completion of the first phase of the PPP Agreement signed in September 2008 between TM and the government of Malaysia."
