The pandemic has instigated various trends, one of which is the hybrid job arrangement whereby employees work from home for a few days per week. With this, more of us are performing heavy-duty tasks on our computers at home that used to be reserved only for the office.
In some homes, two or more people may even be working simultaneously round the clock. Naturally, we would require a faster and stable internet so we can focus on our work and not worry about congestion issues.
If you didn’t know, Astro Fibre is now offering standalone broadband plans with full speeds of up to 800Mbps and the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology. It is also running a special promotion right now whereby you can top up RM1 per day for a month to upgrade to the 100 Mbps Astro Fibre bundle package amounting to RM129.99.
Read on to find out more about the Astro Fibre bundle promo.
You’re rushing a project and your files just won’t complete downloading. Or you’re in an important video call with a client and had to drop out halfway. These are just some work-from-home scenarios many of us have experienced over the last two years.
There are various factors that could affect your Internet speed, namely the technology utilised by your provider, placement of your devices, type of devices used, number of devices connected on your network, and more. In recent years, more Internet service providers are offering fibre internet to homeowners. Fibre internet is transmitted to your homes via optic cables and offers faster speed as compared to copper cables.
For starters, it’s also important to select the right package with an internet speed that complements your needs. According to Speedtest, you would want minimum download speeds as shown below to enjoy uninterrupted online activities.
Astro Fibre is offering fibre broadband plans starting from internet speeds of 50 Mbps to 800 Mbps, powered by Wi-Fi 6 routers. With more tasks being done at home whether as a working adult, business owner, or student, internet bandwidth can stretch causing unstable connection. In post-pandemic times, 50Mbps could be the new 30Mbps. With this entry level speed, it allows users to experience stable connections with up to 30 devices connected.
Nowadays, many of us rely on more than one device on a daily basis. During the day, you may be working on your phone or laptop in your study room. When you’re not occupied with work or school, you would probably be streaming your daily shows on your huge 4K TV or gaming on your computer.
Enjoying stable connection throughout your home can be difficult as every home has ‘dead spots’. The further your devices are from your router, the weaker your Wi-Fi signal becomes. To ensure that you can access fast and stable internet in every nook and corner of your home, Astro Fibre is giving subscribers of plans with internet speeds of 100 Mbps to 800 Mbps a free mesh Wi-Fi to turn ‘dead spots’ into ‘sweet spots’.
With a mesh Wi-Fi device, you get a wider coverage of internet connection at home and you don’t have to worry about repositioning your router. All subscribers will get the powerful Wi-Fi 6 router so you can get stronger internet connection.
From now till 30 June 2022, Astro Fibre is offering a bundle that includes Astro’s streaming content so you can have your entertainment and internet services all rolled into one bill.
