Residents of three (3) more villages in Kuching namely Kampung Boyan, Kampung Gersik and Kampung Surabaya can now enjoy high speed Internet connectivity with unifi.

Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), through TM Sarawak, today expanded its unifi service to three (3) more villages in Kuching, Sarawak namely Kampung Boyan, Kampung Gersik and Kampung Surabaya (Kpg BGS). The service expansion has provided an opportunity for new and existing TM customers in the area to experience high-speed Internet connectivity delivered via fibre optic network.

To mark the occasion, a special event titled “Juh Tukar Ke unifi @ Tebingan Sungai BGS” was held and launched by YB Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Rahman Haji Junaidi, Minister in the Chief Minister’s Department (Islamic Affairs & Dewan Bandaraya Kuching Utara (DBKU)) and Assistant Minister of Utility (Water Supply). The launch was witnessed by Adiman Ajem, Director of Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) Sarawak and Sudarnoto Osman, Chief Executive Officer, Sarawak Digital Economy Corporation (SDEC). Also present at the event was Jafer Sadig Abdul Lathiff, State General Manager, TM Sarawak.

Speaking at the event, YB Datuk Dr. Haji Abdul Rahman said: “We welcome the expansion of unifi to Kampung Boyan, Kampung Gersik and Kampung Surabaya as this signifies TM’s continuous effort to bring high speed broadband connectivity to more areas in Sarawak. This initiative is hoped to boost the growth of local industries such as Kek Lapis Sarawak and Ikan Terubuk Masin, thus promoting digital economy and adoption of a more digital lifestyle amongst the local communities. As Malaysia’s national telecommunications services provider, with its extensive network and expertise, I believe TM is more than capable to facilitate Sarawak’s digital transformation journey.”

Meanwhile in his speech, Jafer Sadig said, “As the enabler of Digital Malaysia aspiration, we are excited to deliver our unifi service to Kpg BGS so the residents there can fully utilise the high speed connectivity to cater to their digital lifestyle. We will also continue to upgrade the network infrastructure to fibre optic beyond Kpg BGS in Kuching Division to fulfill the increasing demand for unifi. This has become more essential as the nation adapts to the new normal in which our activities including work, education, business and leisure have been digitalised. We hoped that the availability of unifi service to more areas will enable Sarawak citizens to reap the benefits of digital communications,” he said.

“This expansion also reflects TM’s commitment and support towards the Government’s Jalinan Digital Negara (JENDELA) action plan to deliver connectivity to all. TM, as a responsible nation-builder, will continue to serve the nation and establish the ecosystem for a digital society, digital businesses and digital Government through our solid network infrastructure towards enabling Digital Malaysia,” he added.
