Even though there were persistent rumor regarding a new entry-level UniFi plan for quite some time, the leak of this particular slide and pictures of network equipment have finally brought it under the limelight. Referred to as UniFi Lite and delivers speed of up to 10Mbps for download as well as 5Mbps for upload, we have noticed a number of posts in Lowyat.NET Forums that further prove that the plan is real.
These posts came from several forumers that have previously subscribed to the original UniFi VIP5 plan. As part of TM’s broadband upgrade exercise that is still on-going, VIP5 subscribers are generally eligible for the next speed tier which is the VIP10. However, the plan has since been discontinued with the launch UniFi Advance plans.
Hence, it made perfect sense that TM decided to move VIP5 customers to the new UniFi Lite plan since it provided the same 10Mbps download speed as the original UniFi VIP10 plan. That being said, the UniFi Lite upload speed half of what VIP10 has offered before.
At the same time, some of the forumers mentioned that the upgrade to UniFi Lite also comes with free HyppTV subscription for a year and 6000 minutes of free local calls. With these reports, the UniFi Lite plan seems to be as real as it can be and this could also mean that an official announcement from TM will take place very soon.
