Celcom Axiata has signed an agreement with Tenaga Nasional Berhad subsidiary Allo Technology to expand its high-speed broadband and convergence services to more consumers and businesses in Peninsular Malaysia. The move will allow Celcom to offer its fibre broadband services to additional 80,000 homes located in Melaka, Perak and Cyberjaya via Allo’s HSBB network infrastructure.
More homes will gain access to fibre as Allo is currently expanding its fibre network to connect more than 150,000 homes in Selangor, Kedah, Johor, Penang and Negeri Sembilan by the end of this year. Through this collaboration, Celcom’s Home Broadband services which include both 4G and fibre will be able to cover more than 4.2 million homes throughout Malaysia.
Apart from home users, Celcom says it will also leverage on Allo’s infrastructure to expand other segments of its connectivity services including commercial offerings to Enterprises. The partnership is aligned with JENDELA‘s aspiration to provide a better quality of services and increased coverage of high-speed broadband services.
As part of its pilot program, Celcom and Allo will provide free connectivity to selected homes in Melaka. Selected families in several towns including Felda Kemendor in Jasin will get to enjoy free broadband service for six months to support households who are working or studying at home during the movement control order.
Celcom’s fibre broadband plans start from RM80/month for 30Mbps and it goes all the way up to RM200/month for its highest 500Mbps option. At the moment, they are offering a Celcom Max fibre and mobile postpaid bundle where you can save RM21/month for life. A 100Mbps fibre plan with Celcom Mega Postpaid can be yours for RM179/month.
