P1 Rises with The Dark Knight to Promote MiFi - Its New Personal 4G WiFi Modem and Plans

New TDD CPE to launch on the network of Packet-1 Malaysia delivering uninterrupted user experience

Kuala Lumpur, 27th of June 2012 – Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. (P1) launches its new MiFi MF230 with ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ movie blockbuster. The P1 MiFi (which stands for my personal WiFi) is a modem best suited for those who appreciate an affordable broadband connection for all their WiFi-enabled devices while on the go. P1 MiFi can serve broadband connection to six devices, five via WIFi and one via USB port. “Many people have two or more devices that can include the laptop, smart phone, tablet, WiFi camera and gaming device. To connect all these devices with different broadband plans would be expensive and inconvenient. Everyone should get their own MiFi (personal 4G WiFi) and now they can”, says P1 CEO Michael Lai. The pocket-size P1 MiFi modem is available for only RM100 with any standard P1 ToGo™ plan, its combo OnePlan™ or as an add-on to the ForHome™ plan. This means that the MiFi (personal 4G WiFi) can be as accessible as a once-off RM100 device fee plus a monthly fee of RM39. Those who seek performance can opt for the mid to high plans which offer uncapped speed and up to 10GB usage quota. Competitor MiFi products range from RM250 to over RM400. “P1 plans are designed for value. With P1 MiFi now available to more tech savvy Malaysians via our friendly price point, more of us can be like Batman whether men or women. Batman may not have superpowers but he can still rise to power and keep Gotham City safe assisted by his cool and sleek gadgets,” Michael said. As part of the campaign, any P1 MiFi with plan purchase comes with exclusive ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ merchandise for a limited time while stocks last.

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.
