I’ve received an exclusive media invite from Celcom Axiata Berhad to attend their Press Conference at Celcom Tower at 10 am this morning where they introduced new entry package to encourage higher Broadband penetration rate.
Celcom Axiata Berhad [formerly known as Celcom (Malaysia) Berhad] is proud to announce its new Broadband packages that start from as low as RM48 per month, as compared with RM68 per month previously.
During the promotional period, starting now till end of August, all new sign-ups for Celcom Broadband packages will be offered a RM10 discount, bringing the price even lower to RM38, for the first three months.
Celcom’s mobile broadband offerings are divided into three packages, namely Entry, Basic and Advance with various speeds and Fair Usage Policy (FUP) limits.
Entry package costs RM48 per month with 1GB FUP limit. The Basic plan is priced at RM68 with 3GB FUP limit while the Advance package is available for RM98 a month with 5GB FUP limit.
This revamp is also in line with the Governmentâ€™s call for more affordable packages to encourage higher broadband penetration, especially in rural areas. The Entry Package also comes with FREE USB modem.
The introduction of these new packages is in conjunction with Celcomâ€™s market leadership in mobile broadband since its inception three years ago and also in celebration of Celcom having been acknowledged as the â€œWireless Data Service Provider of the Yearâ€ during the recent 2010Â Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards held in Singapore as well as garnering the â€œBroadband Service Provider of the Yearâ€ Award at the 2010 Frost & Sullivan Malaysia Telecoms Awards.
Amongst the planned activities to improve Celcomâ€™s network quality includes upgrading of existing sites and enhancing its network coverage. Coverage wise, Celcom is the only mobile broadband service provider that covers almost all districts nationwide. On top of that, 900 additional new sites nationwide will be installed by end of the year. Celcom will also introduce Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) 900 in rural areas to provide extended 3G service. At the end of the year, Celcom aims to cover at least 76% of the population.
Celcom has also planned to increase its capacity by four fold by end of the year via upgrading its existing sites to High Speed Packet Access Plus (HSPA+) or High Speed Uplink Packet Access (HSUPA), migrating its sites to Internet Protocol-enabled (IP-enabled) base stations and fiberising all key backhaul nodes. Celcom has also commissioned new IP transit in Kuching to cater for increasing broadband demand in Sabah and Sarawak.
