SINGAPORE’S ViewQwest is officially kicking off its series of high-speed broadband (HSBB) plans running on the national HSBB network, with its first offering — a new 100Mbps plan available from yesterday.

The deployment of ViewQwest’s new offerings will be rolled out in stages — beginning in the Klang Valley and Johor Baru, with expansion to other cities and areas planned till 2020.

ViewQwest group CEO Vignesa Moorthy said as broadband capacity demands continue to rise in this age of high-definition video streaming and gaming, ViewQwest is committed to offering new options to Malaysian consumers who are keen to test new possibilities beyond the familiar.

“In partnering the national HSBB network, we want to reach more Malaysians who have been demanding better broadband experiences and introduce ViewQwest’s #BetterBroadband concept.

“With ViewQwest’s HSBB services, consumers can get the very best in connectivity speeds, performance reliability and user experience — and at competitive pricing! That is our brand promise to all Malaysians,” he said.

Uniquely ViewQwest
The new 100Mbps plan — called ViewQwest Freedom 100 — will come with a free static Internet protocol (IP) address and ViewQwest’s proprietary services, including latency- based routing and the promise to not engage or enforce a fair usage policy (FUP).

ViewQwest 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.

Combined with static IP, users will be able to experience consistently stable and seamless broadband connectivity, while watching movies on Net-flix of YouTube, or when they are playing an e-sports match.

“At ViewQwest, we are firm in our belief that reliable, truly unlimited and high-quality HSBB should be a basic expectation for consumers.

“We talk about how fast the world of technology can move, so it should also be reasonable for broadband providers to discard the old and slow way of doing things. 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 FUP and bandwidth management controls.

“Instead, we see better value in further investment into next generation broadband systems and capabi- lities that will optimise our network’s performance and ensure Malaysians can truly experience our #BetterBroadband promise,” Vignesa added.

Innovative Broadband Technologies
The ViewQwest Freedom 100 plan — like the current ViewQwest service offerings — offers a progressive WiFi coverage experience as it comes bundled with free advanced network hardware.

For customers with homes smaller than 1,000 sq ft, there is the Asus RT-AC1200G+, a high-spec WiFi router designed to seamlessly stream rich content like 4K videos and enriched content.

As for users who demand true seamless WiFi connectivity, they can consider the more advanced Asus Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh.

The mesh comes in a pair by default to ensure there are no WiFi dead zones. This concept will seamlessly deliver an intuitive fibre broadband user experience.

Both Asus network platforms are top-of-the-line devices currently only offered by ViewQwest in its bundled HSBB plans.

Those considering the Freedom 100 plan with the Asus RT-AC1200G+ can expect to pay an average monthly subscription fee of RM123 for 24 months and RM118 for 36 months.

Those preferring the Asus Lyra Trio Dual-Band Mesh bundle will be looking at an average monthly subscription fee of RM140 (24 months) or RM137 (36 months).

All plans will come with three months of free usage via a limited time introductory offer.

The initial 100Mbps plan will eventually be joined by ViewQwest’s 300Mbps, 500Mbps and 800Mbps offerings.

These faster bandwidths will roll out in stages within the Klang Valley and Johor Baru, and onwards across the entire HSBB coverage area.

These extremely fast broadband plans will also sport ViewQwest’s progressive networking capabilities.
