Broadcasting Network joins IPTV and broadband fray by offering lower prices

PETALING JAYA: The new digital cable TV operator, Asian Broadcasting Network (M) Sdn Bhd (ABN) is dangling high speed broadband (HSBB) and digital cable TV services at prices that are lower than the competition.

Its two competitors are Telekom Malaysia Bhd, which offers HSBB and Internet Protocol television (IPTV) services via its UniFi and HyppTV respectively, and Maxis Bhd/Astro which have forged a partnership to offer IPTV and broadband services.

UniFi is a broadband service by TM that uses fibre optics to deliver high speed internet, phone and IPTV services to customers' homes.

ABN is offering 10Mps, 30Mbps and 50 Mbps packages of HSBB at RM129, RM219 and RM369 per month respectively.

When combined with pay TV services - ABNxcess - it will cost an additional RM29.99 for 50 channels plus free-to-air TV, radio and games applications.

Both the pay TV service and HBSS will cost RM158.99 per month for the 10 Mbps HSBB package, RM248.99 per month for 30Mbps and RM398.99 per month for 50Mbps. ABN said it uses Motorola Mobility Home (now acquired by Arris) products and services, including cable modems, to deliver its HSBB services.

“Arris and Motorola's long experience and leadership in video and broadband in the cable industry provide ABN the ability to in turn serve subscribers with reliable and best-of-class service,” ABN president and CEO Sreedhar Subramaniam said.

ABN said besides high speed internet services, the same cable allowed ABNxcess for video services, adding that ABNxcess pay TV service uses technology for video that does not suffer from “rain fade”, thunderstorm and lighting interference, or pixelisation caused by “last mile” network congestion present in IP based networks.

The ABNxcess pay TV service is provided using a TV set-top-box from Motorola that supports MPEG4 video compression, High Definition TV, USB port for future PVR services, games applications and information services.

ABNxcess is available in limited areas and has opened registration for its pay TV and HSBB services for installation within the next six months in several areas in the Klang Valley and Johor Baru.

I'm still not confident about their services. Took so long to launch the service and no landline (Family still uses it) and using coaxial (Why not go straight for fiber, is it really so bloody expensive?). How about quotas, latency, installation fees etc?

Still a lot of uncertainties and questions to be answered sad.gif

This cable tv provider is another 1Malaysia spinoff which plans to abandon ASTRO for satellite tv in favour of the new cable medium. We know who is the "real boss" behind this 1Malaysia company.



From the video, observe for yourself who are the directors involved with 1Malaysia badges they wore.
Almost of of them are my neh neh's relatives - lots of talking can get very syiok wan. wink.gif

You see they only hire young girls for their sales and marketing icon_idea.gif

Those who have experience with this ABNxcess sister telco company, V Telecoms you'll know that kind of experience you get with their services. The company has very awful international bandwidth and peers with only a miserable Indonesian company.

They can offer 10mbps as the entry package, but as you know cable broadband speeds fluctuate very badly during off peak hours if oversold.If too many people are placed on the same node, you'll be lucky if you get a decent 2mbps speed out of it.

Initially when it's still new and without many subscribers, the service may still be fine but as subscriber grows, the QoS is questionable.

Deployment will concentrate on high rise apartments similar to Time Broadband because they can use the existing MATV coaxial cable within the buildings for FREE.

Just another spinoff and brand refreshing with cable TV thrown in.
If you have watched through the video, you'll know the geng of neh nehs involved in the business and their ties with 1Malaysia Co.

The price is just ridiculous in Malaysia for telco services.

RM109 in Thailand gets you 13mbps broadband with 100+ IPTV channels on a separate set-top box

This is 3BB promo offer:

While RM130 gets you 20mbps down for TRUE DOCSIS 3.0 cable internet

Full TV channel packages cost another RM35 or so.

3BB Thailand's GPON FTTH is fast expanding now throughout Bangkok Metropolitan and other major cities incd. Chiangmai.

Expect the similar upload speeds for this cable internet in Malaysia and pay 3X more for its 50mbps service.

Huh !!! One of the downsides of coaxial cable internet is that when more people use it, it slows down significantly.

The best TV experience in Malaysia is always the one beaming wirelessly direct from the sky. Just take a lesson from HyppTV Unifi. Total failure. Just imagine buffering happen when a final kick of word cup penalty shoot out is about to take at score of 4-4....

Multicast iptv doesn't buffer, it will just pixelate. Multicast bandwidth is dedicated, for heavy pixelization to happen, the network must be severely congested
