Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) recently celebrated the third anniversary of its high-speed broadband service, UniFi, together with its business customers at Tropicana City Mall, in Petaling Jaya in a simple yet exciting bash. Together with two other celebratory events held concurrently at two (2) other locations in Penang (Sunway Hotel, Seberang Jaya) and Johor (Pelangi Golf Driving Range), the events were organised especially to show the Company’s appreciation for its UniFi customers from the SME segment for choosing TM as their preferred communications partner in Malaysia.

Commenting on the anniversary, Azizi A. Hadi, Executive Vice President, SME, TM who was at the event in Petaling Jaya said, “This year marks the third birthday of UniFi and we are excited UniFi has grown by leaps and bounds and to date, TM already more than 520,000 UniFi customers nationwide including over 78,100 SME customers. We are definitely very happy with this achievement and indeed very grateful to our customers for their continued trust in us in delivering an enhanced and integrated digital lifestyle to their homes and businesses. As an appreciation from TM to you and our way to say ‘thank you’ to our valued customers for making us the No. 1 broadband provider in Malaysia, we have lined up special promotions, especially for SME businesses in conjunction with this celebration.”

“We at TM are committed to push SMEs up the value chain and boost SMEs’ competitive advantage locally and internationally through our diverse and comprehensive, but yet customised and affordable communication tools and ICT solutions.

The products are focused on usage, price, demographic location, value-added services and many more, skewed towards the customer’s needs and requirements. We encourage SMEs to fully utilise the products, services and solutions available from TM to further enhance their capacities and move further into global production and distribution networks,” Azizi continued.
