ViewQwest is officially kicking off its series of high-speed broadband plans running on the national High-Speed Broadband (HSBB) network, with its first offering – a new 100Mbps plan, available from today. The deployment of ViewQwest’s new offerings will be rolled out in stages – beginning in the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru, with expansion to other cities and areas planned across 2019/20.
“As broadband capacity demands continue to rise in this age of high-definition video streaming and gaming, ViewQwest is committed to offering new options to Malaysian consumers who are keen to test new possibilities beyond the familiar. In partnering with the national HSBB network, we want to reach more Malaysians who have been demanding better broadband experiences and introduce ViewQwest’s #BetterBroadband concept. With ViewQwest’s high-speed broadband services, consumers can get the very best in connectivity speeds, performance reliability, and user experience – and at competitive pricing! That is our brand promise to all Malaysians,” said Vignesa Moorthy, the Group Chief Executive Officer for ViewQwest Group.
The new 100Mbps plan – called ViewQwest Freedom 100 – will come with a free Static IP address and proprietary ViewQwest services, including latency-based routing and the promise to not engage or enforce a Fair Usage Policy. ViewQwest remains committed in its conviction that there is no need for any form of network shaping, bandwidth caps, or strict data traffic management policies that restrict user activities at any time. Combined with Static IP, users will be able to experience consistently stable and seamless broadband connectivity while watching movies on Netflix of YouTube or when they are playing an esports match.
“At ViewQwest, we are firm in our belief that reliable, truly unlimited, high-quality high-speed broadband should be a basic expectation for consumers. We talk about how fast the world of technology can move, so it should also be reasonable for broadband providers to discard the old and slow way of doing things. Our potential shouldn’t be throttled by the bottleneck of slow broadband speeds and usage limits. As providers, we should be exploring how much more we can offer to improve customer experiences. As such, we have set aside the marketplace norms of Fair Usage Policy and bandwidth management controls. Instead, we see better value in further investment into next-gen broadband systems and capabilities that will optimise our network’s performance and ensure Malaysians can truly experience our #BetterBroadband promise,” Vignesa added.
Innovative Broadband Technologies
The ViewQwest Freedom 100 plan – like current ViewQwest service offerings, offers a progressive Wi-Fi coverage experience as it comes bundled with free advanced network hardware. For customers with homes smaller than 1,000ft², there is the ASUS RT-AC1200G+, a high-spec Wi-Fi router designed to seamlessly stream rich content like 4K videos and enriched content. As for users who demand true seamless Wi-Fi connectivity, they can consider the more advanced ASUS Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh. The mesh comes in a pair by default to ensure there are no Wi-Fi dead zones. This concept will seamlessly deliver an intuitive fibre broadband user experience. Both ASUS network platforms are top-the-line devices currently only offered by ViewQwest in its bundled HSBB plans.
Those considering the Freedom 100 plan with the ASUS RT-AC1200G+ can expect to pay an average monthly subscription fee of RM123 for 24-months and RM118 for 36-months. Those preferring the ASUS Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh bundle will be looking at an average monthly subscription fee of RM140 (24-months) or RM137 (36-months). All plans will come with three months of free usage via a limited-time introductory offer.
The initial 100Mbps plan will eventually be joined by ViewQwest’s 300, 500, and 800Mbps offerings. These faster bandwidths will roll out in stages within the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru and onwards across the entire HSBB coverage area. These extremely fast broadband plans will also sport ViewQwest’s progressive networking capabilities.
