BERA – Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) Berhad has reported 460 cases in cable thefts, valued at RM4.2 million, from January to September this year in Pahang.
State Telekom general manager Datuk Md Rasidin Kadak said the number of cable thefts in the state were lower compared to last year when the company changed from metal to fibre cable, which was more durable and rust-proof.
“Even though there are less thefts following TM’s cooperation with police, Rela, Rukun Tetangga as well as members of the public, cable thefts are difficult to contain as the valuable metal is frequently a target of thieves,” he told reporters after opening the Triang TMPoint Authorised Dealer here yesterday.
He said TM was working towards providing the best service to its customers, especially for the convenience of the people as well as to facilitate the business sector.
“The opening of the 65th TMpoint branch in Triang will bring its services closer to the residents in the area,” he said.
Md Rasidin said previously Triang residents had to travel to TM Mentakab which was much further away.
He said another TM authorised dealer would be opened in Jengka Town Centre soon to better serve customers in the region. – BERNAMA
