TIME does 500Mbps Fibre Broadband at RM299/month


Want blazing fast internet? TIME has revamped their Home Fibre Broadband offering with even faster speeds up to 500Mbps. At RM299/month, TIME’s latest offering is significantly cheaper than Maxis’ Fibre Internet that offers 100Mbps for RM398/month.


There are 3 Home Fibre options available. The base 100Mbps broadband option now costs RM149/month, while an extra RM40 lets you triple your speeds to 300Mbps (RM189/month). Both 100Mbps and 300Mbps plans come with a D-Link DIR-850L router. For the ultimate experience, the 500Mbps option is their fastest offering at RM299/month and it comes bundled with a Linksys EA6350 Router. For those who need to make calls, you can get an annual 2,000 minutes pack for RM10/month with a 1-year contract. Alternatively, you can pay per use at 9 sen/minute for fixed and mobile numbers.

All three plans come with unlimited usage and you get symmetrical speeds on fibre. So if you’re on a 500Mbps plan, that means you get the same 500Mbps speeds for both upload and download. Overall, TIME’s latest plans offer faster speeds and lower subscription when compared to its previous 100Mbps Home Fibre plan with 100GB quota at RM179/month. As a comparison, TM is now offering RM179/month for 30Mbps (10Mbps upload) and RM229/month for 50Mbps (20Mbps Upload).

The only limitation for TIME is its service availability. Unlike TM, TIME’s fibre optic network currently covers 250,000 homes, mostly metropolitan areas in Klang Valley and Penang. You can check if your place is covered on their website.
