P1 EXPANDS COVERAGE TO EAST COAST AND EAST MALAYSIA
To enhance connectivity to families within rural and suburban areas of Malaysia

16 October, Petaling Jaya - Packet One Networks Sdn Bhd (P1) recently extended its 4G network to equip customers in East Coast and East Malaysia with enhanced Internet connectivity. This expansion underpins P1’s initiative to reach out to the communities and improve their online activities through its 4G network.

Currently, communities within these areas are heavily dependent on pre-paid data connectivity via their smartphones. This limitation restricts them from online content for business, education, entertainment and many other purposes without disruption. This initiative by P1 marks a new beginning for the rural and sub-urban communities, as they disembark on a journey of hassle-free Internet services.

"Customers in the East Coast and East Malaysia access the Internet similar to the way we in the urban areas do. However, their online activities are constrained by network coverage and data limit. Broadband should not be a privilege to any Malaysians as access to information is a right. Hence, we want to enable these communities so they too can be part of the current trends and technology advancement where information can be accessed at the click of a button," shared Lai Shu Wei, Chief Marketing Officer for P1.

As P1 continues to expand its 4G network, these communities would be among the first to experience its newly enhanced DX825 modem.

"We are humbled to be able to equip these communities with our latest development. Through our new DX825 home modem, they will not have to rely on mobile data alone anymore. Now everyone in the family can stay connected. It is our goal to continuously provide an enhanced user experience. Our advancement is a testament of our partnership with Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and SK Telecom towards becoming Malaysia's Convergence Champion and No. 1 Converged Communications Services Provider. This is also in line with the Group's aspirations to deliver convergence as a seamless experience beyond technology, products and services and devices, to enrich, improve and impact the lives of Malaysians everywhere; true to our mantra – "Life and Business Made Easier"," added Shu Wei.

As an introductory package, P1 is offering free one (1) month subscription with zero upfront payment promotional discount to all new subscribers to P1 4G network.
