Astro partners Allo to expand broadband services

Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad’s (“Astro”) and Allo Technology Sdn. Bhd. (Allo) announced a strategic partnership, where Astro will offer a unique bundled broadband and content offering to new and existing residential areas connected by Allo.

In a statement, Astro said the offering will provide residents with high speed broadband connections as well as Astro’s best-in-class content which is part of Astro’s support of the Government’s National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (“NFCP”).

“Despite observing the MCO, business continues for us,” Henry Tan, Group CEO of Astro said, adding Allo has an aggressive roll out plan nationwide and they believe it will open up significant new headroom for growth for them in line with their broadband strategy.

The Allo partnership will expand the current broadband home-passes from TM, Maxis and TIME by over 150,000 new households and businesses over the next 18 months.

“This will help us expand Astro Broadband’s reach beyond urban areas into areas not fully covered by our existing partnerships including Alor Gajah, Cyberjaya, Bangsar South and many more suburban areas,” Tan added.

Meanwhile, Rodzi Ahmad, CEO of Allo, said they will continue to expand their fibre footprint nationwide under the NFCP initiative, starting with Melaka, Perak, Johor, Kedah, Selangor and Pulau Pinang.

“We welcome this partnership with Astro to grow together with the expansion plan which will allow us to extend the high-speed broadband and content services into these areas so that currently underserved consumers can enjoy the services.”

As part of this partnerships, Astro will be able to resell all of Allo’s broadband products, including broadband speeds up to 1 Gbps.

At launch, Astro will offer cost efficient high-speed broadband services of 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps, at a special price of RM 99, and RM 129 respectively.
