Singaporean Internet service provider ViewQwest is now offering a 100Mbps high-speed broadband plan, starting in Klang Valley and Johor Bahru, with plans to go nationwide within the year.

This follows a deal with Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) to get on the National HSBB network, meaning the service will be available wherever Unifi and its fibre partners are, including landed properties and apartments.

The 100Mbps plan called ViewQwest Freedom 100 does not have a usage cap.

It also comes bundled with network hardware, a Static IP address and proprietary ViewQwest services, including latency-based routing and the promise to not engage or enforce a Fair Usage Policy.

Its chief executive officer Vignesa Moorthy says the company 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.

“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,” he said in a press release.

Combined with Static IP, users are expected to experience consistently stable and seamless broadband connectivity while streaming movies on services like dimsum, Netflix, YouTube or when playing an eSports match.

The ViewQwest Freedom 100 comes with different pricings based on the customer’s choice of bundled WiFi router and whether they subscribe for two or three years.

The Freedom 100 plan with an Asus RT-AC1200G+ will be charged RM138 monthly for a 24-month contract, or RM128 monthly for 36 months.

The plan bundled with the Asus Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh has a monthly subscription fee of RM158 for 24 months or RM148 for 36 months.

During the limited-time introductory offer, all plans will come with three months of free usage, which will start after the contract ends.

The ASUS RT-AC1200G+ is recommended for customers with homes smaller than 1,000ft² while the ASUS Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh provides wider coverage for larger homes.

ViewQwest states that more plans including a 300, 500, and 800Mbps version will be rolled out eventually.
