KOTA BAHARU: Residents in Kelantan will get to enjoyÂ Unifi high-speed broadband Internet service in August this year, at theÂ earliest, Telekom Malaysia (TM) general manager for Kelantan, Ab Rashid CheÂ Othman said.
He said for a start, the service would be available in the Kota BaharuÂ district, namely, the town area, Kubang Kerian and Pengkalan Chepa with theÂ installation of three telephone exchanges in the affected areas.
With the installation of the exchanges, TM expects to get 5,000 people toÂ register for the service by March next year, he told reporters after a breakingÂ of fast programme hosted by TM for its clients here yesterday.
Abd Rashid said TM would not provide Streamyx service in areas covered byÂ the Unifi service.
“But in places with Streamyx and if there are requests for Unifi service,Â they can have both,” he added.
UniFi is a broadband service by TM that uses fibre optics to deliverÂ high-speed internet, phone connectivity and IPTV to customers.– BERNAMA
