P1 broadband now in Sabah
Targets 80% coverage in Kota Kinabalu by 2012

Kota Kinabalu, 12 July 2012 – Residents in Sabah now have an additional choice for broadband services with the entry of P1 (“Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd”), Malaysia’s first and largest 4G service provider with over 400,000 subscribers. The company has an aggressive network deployment plan aimed at providing up to 80% of household coverage in urban Kota Kinabalu by the end of 2012.

P1 earlier announced that it will commit RM30 million to provide East Malaysians with 4G broadband service with phase one network deployment focused on Kota Kinabalu, Sandakan, and Tawau.

Chief Executive Officer of P1, Michael Lai said, "We are truly excited to be able to serve high speed broadband services to East Malaysians. 4G broadband technology brings the Internet superhighway to the people. With our plug and play broadband services, you can do away with wires and the hassle of installation, plus it has the added advantage of being on-the-go even for fixed-wireless home access.

P1 will start by offering its staple ForHome™ fixed-wireless broadband plan, which recently won the company the honour of being the ‘Best Home Wireless Broadband Provider’ at GoMobile Operators Awards 2012. According to Lai, P1’s fixed-wireless broadband services provide many benefits around speed, ease-of-use and convenience. But mostly, P1 plans are popular because of the fantastic value built in that enable more people to enjoy rich Internet media affordably.

Residents of Kota Kinabalu who are interested to find out more and experience P1 broadband service can visit P1’s first centre at Lintas Square which officially opened yesterday on 11 July. Derek Chee, P1’s Channel Sales Director, who was at the centre opening said that another P1 centre will soon be opened in December to serve Kota Kinabalu residents.

Operating hours of the P1 centres are from 9 am to 5.30 pm on weekdays, 9 am to 1 pm on Saturday and is closed on Sunday. To find out areas with P1 coverage and get more details about P1’s products and services, log on to
