Last update: 09/10/2019

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 9  -- Maxis Bhd and Celcom Timur (Sabah) Sdn Bhd (CT Sabah) will collaborate to provide greater access to fibre connectivity to the people and businesses in Sabah through the provision of High-Speed Broadband (HSBB) Network Services.

In a statement, Maxis said the partnership would allow it to have full access to CT Sabah’s fibre optic network, enabling a direct link-up to offer high-speed broadband services to end-users at attractive rates.

“This would enable Maxis to offer its already available fibre plans to even more homes and businesses in the state, starting Nov 1,” it said.

Furthermore, Maxis said by leveraging CT Sabah’s infrastructure and services, Maxis would have access to the latest hardware and software technology on a 24/7 network monitoring system, as well as access to CT Sabah’s dedicated and competent technical support staff to assist customers in managing network transmission, with a current average Mean Time to Restore (MTTR) of within two hours.

Maxis chief executive officer Gokhan Ogut said the company has a clear ambition to be Malaysia’s leading converged solutions company, and it plays an important role in driving higher broadband adoption.

“Our partnership with CT Sabah is another significant step forward for us in fulfilling our converged ambitions.

“I would like to thank CT Sabah for helping us make this a reality, not just for Maxis, but for the people and businesses in Sabah as we look forward to rolling out our attractive fibre plans here to more homes and businesses,” he added.
