Telekom Malaysia (TM) will be offering free unifi Air to customers who are waiting for their new unifi fibre broadband to be installed at home. Applicable to new customers who sign up for any unifi Home plans, the service will be yours to use until your unifi Home is successfully installed.
TM’s announcement also clarified that the unifi Air service will be delivered to your doorstep, allowing customers with immediate wireless internet access for the home if there are delays with the unifi Home installation due to the ongoing Movement Control Order.
unifi Air, which was introduced in August last year, is a wireless home broadband service that provides instant connectivity without requiring installation. It is designed for those who are not located within unifi’s fibre network coverage, and instead relies on TM’s 4G LTE/TDD coverage.
The service also allows you to connect up to 64 devices with unlimited internet quota at an average speed of 20Mbps.
The unifi Air service is actually a standalone option from TM, which is currently priced at RM79 per month. It’s a plug-and-play solution, making it ideal not just for those outside the unifi fibre network, but also for those in rented homes or seeking temporary home internet solutions.
TM’s free unifi Air offer is likely the telco’s attempt to assist their customers despite the current restrictions put in place due to the ongoing movement control order (MCO). The Malaysian Communication and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) had announced that internet service installations and maintenance works are now permitted, but only in green zones.
