In its latest bid to expand its footprint in Malaysia, Singaporean internet service provider (ISP) ViewQwest has acquired local ISP Macro Lynx , in addition to acquiring the residential operations of another local ISP, iHalo. The two acquisitions boosted ViewQwest’s total coverage to nearly 120 residential, business, and commercial sites around Malaysia at the end of 2020.
ViewQwest will now be available in more locations in the Klang Valley including the Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Jaya 33, G-Tower, Mid Valley City, and Cheras. In addition to that, the new acquisitions have also stamped the company’s name on Pasir Gudang, Johor and Ipoh, Perak.
Full integration of Macro Lynx and iHalo customers and operations into the ViewQwest network are expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter of this year. ViewQwest believes the new acquisitions will allow it to leverage its strengths to meet the changing working environment and current trends, including the widespread adoption of Work From Home (WFH) policies by many companies in Malaysia.
Vignesa Moorthy, CEO of ViewQwest, said, “Through the economically challenging past year across the globe and the region, ViewQwest has remained steadfast in its expansion to serve more customers, especially during the Recovery Movement Control Order (RMCO) period, when many people were still practising working from home (WFH).”At this moment, ViewQwest Malaysia home broadband plan starts from as low as RM 48 per month for 100Mbps while its most premium plan which offers 1Gbps synchronous speed could go for up to RM 218 per month.
