Astro Fibre was launched in March 2022 and it offers Astro and broadband bundles from RM129.99/month. If you just want internet for your home without the Astro Pay TV offering, you can now subscribe to Astro broadband service standalone and the plans start from RM99/month.
According to Astro, the launch of its new standalone fibre broadband service is a step towards transitioning the group into a full Internet Service Provider (ISP). When the WiFi Kencang was introduced, it promises to offer a one-stop home entertainment and internet solution that combines content and Mesh WiFi.
Here’s the pricing for Astro’s standalone Fibre Broadband offering:
- 50Mbps (20Mbps upload) – RM99.00/month
- 100Mbps (50Mbps upload) – RM129.00/month
- 500Mbps (100Mbps upload) – RM189.00/month
- 800Mbps (200Mbps upload) – RM249.00/month
All plans come with free WiFi 6 router included which provides a more robust wireless connection. If you subscribe to the 100Mbps plan and above, Astro is providing free 1 Mesh for 24 months which is used to expand your home’s WiFi coverage. The Mesh WiFi nodes are typically offered as an add-on subscription at RM10/month each for all plans. Each customer can subscribe up to 5 units of Mesh WiFi nodes.
Astro Fibre plans are tied to a 24-month contract. According to the FAQ, unlike the standard Astro TV and broadband bundle, the standalone Astro Fibre subscription will not auto-renew with another 24-month contract at the end of your lock-in period.
Astro’s Fibre Broadband service is leveraging TM’s nationwide HSBB network. This means that if your area has Unifi Fibre coverage, you should be able to subscribe to Astro Fibre. As a comparison, TM’s Unifi home fibre service is charging RM89/month for its 30Mbps plan and RM129/month for its 100Mbps option.
To help troubleshoot your current WiFi issues, Astro says it has installation experts that will conduct a thorough WiFi heatmap-based assessment of each home upon installation.
If you prefer to subscribe to their broadband with Astro TV included, the plans start from RM129.99/month for the 50Mbps broadband and Primary pack. You can learn more in our previous post. For more info, you can check out the Astro Fibre website and FAQ.
