As you might know, one of the major differences between TM’s UniFi Advance Plans that were launched last year as compared to the original UniFi VIP plans are their asymmetrical nature. While many customers seemed to be fine with the higher 30 and 50 Mbps download speed on the new plans, some criticized the plans’ 5 and 10 Mbps upload speed although TM has justified the move by stating that most of its UniFi customers don’t fully utilized their upload speed.
However, it seems like TM has budged in to the criticism by quietly increasing the upload speed as discovered on the “Get It Now” section of the official website for UniFi Advance Plan Personal.

Telekom Malaysia has something to say about smartphones, but is not saying much about it. The telco posted a cryptic Tweet saying that “The smartphone unlike any other needs a broadband unlike any other.
