28 January 2009

P1 introduced new pricing package for homes and offices

PETALING JAYA - Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (P1), Malaysia’s first WiMAX telco, will end its free modem promotional offer on 1 February 2009, five months after its commercial launch in August last year.

Michael Lai, chief executive officer of P1 said the company will be introducing its new packages starting 2 February 2009, where five new subscription plans for P1 W1MAX users will replace the current promotional packages. The new subscription plans will consist of three 'Home' plans to meet the needs of personal users and two 'Office' plans that are designed for businesses.

For the new plans on 12-months contract, subscribers will have to pay a subsidized amount for the WiMAX modem valued at RM999.

“We strongly encourage broadband users who are within our coverage to seize the opportunity and sign up for the current free modem promotion before the end of this month as they would be able to save on having to pay for the modem.”

“Our customers can be assured that our new plans will be backed by P1’s on-going commitment to top-notch quality of service and customer satisfaction. With these plans, we look forward to serving more Malaysians as we continue to aggressively roll out P1 W1MAX nationwide,” Lai said.

P1 W1MAX service is now available in selected parts of the Klang Valley, Johor and Kedah. The latest areas to have P1 W1MAX coverage this week include parts of Jalan Kemajuan in Petaling Jaya, Pandan Indah in Ampang, Kota Kemuning and Taman Bunga Negara in Shah Alam, The Summit in USJ, Jinjang Utara and Selatan, Damansara Heights and Bandar Puteri Puchong in Selangor. Detailed information on the current P1 W1MAX subscription plans and reseller location can be obtained at www.p1.com.my.

P1 made these announcements earlier at a gala dinner for about 250 P1 W1MAX resellers from the Klang Valley, Johor, Penang and Kedah. The dinner was the first national reseller gathering hosted by P1 since the launch of their service in August 2008.
