Time earlier today has unveiled a new consumer fibre plan called Pakej MyKabel. Through this particular plan, customers will be provided with 100Mbps service for RM69 per month although it is not going to be made available for everyone though.
This is because Pakej MyKabel is a highly targeted offering as it was sparked by the Pakej Perpaduan initiative that was announced by the government yesterday. As per what the Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil has noted, Pakej Perpaduan for fixed broadband is meant for those in the B40 income group as well as senior citizens, disabled persons (OKU), and veterans.
In the case of Pakej MyKabel, it can only be obtained at Program Perumahan Rakyat (PPR) areas that are covered by Time. At the moment, there is only a handful of those around and below is the current list of Time-covered PPR areas:
- PPR Kampung Baru HICOM, Selangor
- PPR Kota Damansara, Selangor
- PPR Lembah Subang, Selangor
- PPR Taman Putra Damai, Selangor (Lembah Subang 1)
- PPR Kerinchi, Kuala Lumpur
- PPR UDA Utama, Johor
- PPR Taman Perling, Johor (Jalan Rawa 1)
- PPR Taman Perling, Johor (Jalan Rawa 7)
Instead of the standard monthly fee of RM99, Pakej MyKabel provided a monthly rebate of RM30 for Time Fibre Home 100Mbps customers which is how we ended up at RM69 per month. This rebate will be applicable throughout the plan’s 24-month contract duration.
As a comparison, here is how the Time Fibre Home plan looks like for the time being:
- Time Fibre Home 100Mbps: RM99
- Time Fibre Home 500Mbps: RM139
- Time Fibre Home 1Gbps: RM199
- Time Fibre Home 2Gbps: RM379
In terms of availability, it follows the same timeline as Pakej Perpaduan. Eligible customers are able to apply for Time’s Pakej MyKabel starting this March onwards and the registration will continue to be open until the end of December 2023.
