[ UPDATE 20/03/2023 17:40 ] Communications and Digital Ministry has updated that the full plan details will be revealed on Thursday, 30th March instead of 29th March.
During a press conference held today, Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil said the affordable RM69 Pakej Perpaduan fibre broadband plan for targeted groups will be revealed next week, 30th March. As mentioned last month, the Pakej Perpaduan fibre broadband plan is aimed at B40 groups, veterans, people with disabilities (OKU) and senior citizens.
This is the second “Perpaduan” internet package after introducing the Pakej Perpaduan mobile prepaid package last month which offered 30GB of data for RM30 that’s valid for 180 days. The Pakej Perpaduan Jalur Lebar priced at RM69/month will offer fixed broadband with speeds up to 30Mbps with no data cap, and it’s tied to a 24-month contract. The affordable broadband package will be made available from Telekom Malaysia (TM), CelcomDigi, Maxis, U Mobile, YTL, Time and Astro. According to the ministry, the package aimed at lower-income groups will provide savings of RM480 over a period of two years.
Time is the first to introduce its “Pakej Perpaduan” plan by offering 100Mbps fibre broadband for only RM69/month. Described as Pakej MyKabel, the RM69/month 100Mbps plan offers savings of RM720 throughout the 24-month contract period with symmetrical 100Mbps speeds for both upload and download.
