For years now, the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia has waxed lyrical about making high-speed internet available for ALL Malaysians. However, it was until earlier where they insisted all our local Internet Service Providers (ISPs) to drop their prices down a notch so that goal could inch closer to reality.
Fast forward to today, and the high-speed broadband price wars are at the most affordable they have been. ISPs have even been offering free upgrades and are actively pushing out new plans.
For fixed home broadbands, consumers can choose from speeds ranging from 30Mbps all the way up to 1Gbps. A far cry from the paltry 5Mbps days.
As far as pricing goes, it now costs just RM79/month for a 30Mbps plan, while a 1Gbps plan costs RM199/month. But this, of course, depends on the ISP you choose to sign up with and not all plans and ISPs are created equal.
There’s always a catch
Unfortunately, most plans offered by ISPs come with a 24-month contract which means if you choose to cancel or terminate your plan, you will be issued a hefty termination penalty that ranges from RM500 to over RM1,000.
Also, depending on the usage of your family members, you might want to upgrade or downgrade your plan. However, with a contract, you are not as free to modify your plan, and even if you do, you might be re-contracted for another 24 months.
But what if you don’t want to be tied down? What options do you have?
A plan with no strings attached
Fortunately, TIME is giving customers an Online Exclusive where you can opt out of the standard lock-in contract for all their plans. All you have to do is just sign up online!
But what are the benefits of this no lock-in contract broadband? For a start, you will still enjoy 100% high-speed fibre broadband with no quota and enjoy the flexibility to terminate, downgrade or upgrade your Internet plan.
The best part is, there’s no hefty termination penalties! You will have to pay a one-time charge of RM400 for the 100 or 500Mbps plans or RM500 for the 1Gbps plan. If you choose to switch to a contract plan later, that one-time payment will then be given back to you as a rebate over an 8 to 10-month period depending on the plan you chose.
So, if you’re a student, expat, short-term renter or someone who just wants to give TIME’s Fibre Home Broadband a test drive, this is the ideal plan for you.
