TM’s Internet traffic increases


TM said the enforcement of MCO 2.0 has made most Malaysians rely heavily on Internet connectivity for online communications to stay connected and productive while working and learning at home, which naturally led to an inevitable surge of data consumption.

PETALING JAYA: Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) recorded a 15% increase in overall Internet traffic usage since the inception of the second movement control order (MCO 2.0) beginning Jan 13,2021 compared to the first MCO in March last year.

TM said the enforcement of MCO 2.0 has made most Malaysians rely heavily on Internet connectivity for online communications to stay connected and productive while working and learning at home, which naturally led to an inevitable surge of data consumption.

“We have the capacity and diverse network connectivity nationwide and worldwide to support immediate and large spike in demand for Internet bandwidth, as a result of our continuous network optimisation effort.

“Our existing partnerships with the world’s technology giants and social networks in locally hosting Internet content in Malaysia has also resulted in better customer experience while accessing applications and content, ” it told Bernama via email.

TM said the industry has come together to support the National Economic Recovery Plan initiative by offering a special mobile data package for candidates of Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and STPM. ─ Bernama
