Telekom Malaysia pioneers the future with adaptive solutions, technological innovations

It has reached significant milestones and demonstrated a commitment to shaping the digital landscape in Malaysia.

As Malaysia's leading integrated telco and digital technology company, Telekom Malaysia (TM) excels at delivering carrier solutions via TM Global, its wholesale domestic and international business arm, which has access to a vast fibre cable network, submarine cable systems, international gateways, content delivery networks, data hosting services, and regional offices around the world.

TM Global reported a remarkable 5% revenue increase to RM808.6m in Q3 of 2023, compared to the previous year.

Several notable collaborations in 2023 further strengthened its position as a catalyst of digital adoption across industries and the 5G ecosystem, such as the extension of a decade-long partnership High-Speed Broadband access collaboration with Malaysian access seekers, as well as the deployment of two additional International Internet Gateways in East Malaysia, which not only closes the digital divide but also drives digital opportunities for education, jobs, and entrepreneurship.

Despite the domestic market challenge on wholesale infrastructure, TM Global mitigated the risks through ongoing collaborations with industry players in promoting innovative new value-add broadband solutions to enhance the overall internet experience for the nation.

TM Global is also firmly established internationally as the gateway for businesses seeking to expand into ASEAN and vice versa, utilising its capabilities encompassing the 32 submarine cable system networks that it owns or leases, which spans over 340,000 kilometres worldwide and have over 80 Tbps capacity.

In this regard, the company has expanded its extensive inventory by participating in the Asia Link Cable consortium to build the new subsea cable to significantly increase data-transfer capacity of TM's existing submarine cable systems, meeting the region's escalating bandwidth demands across ASEAN and North Asia.

TM Global also remains committed to facilitating content distribution into Southeast Asia and beyond through TM Edge, and it has continued to broaden its business into platform services in 2023 to connect service providers worldwide with the growing ASEAN market.

Going into the future, TM Global wishes to elevate its position with innovative solutions and aspires to become a leading regional digital platform provider, whilst consistently exploring state-of-the-art applications to drive digital expansion locally and across the regions.
In recognition of its stellar performance in 2023, TM Global has been acknowledged by the Asian Telecom Awards 2024 as the recipient of the Telecom Company of the Year - Malaysia and the Wholesale Company Initiative of the Year - Malaysia category wins.

“With a string of distinguished awards under its belt, TM Global has solidified its position as the preeminent regional wholesale telco for its core connectivity capabilities as well as those that go beyond connectivity. Looking ahead, TM Global will continue to maintain its position as the leading wholesale telecom company aiming to revolutionise the region,” it said.

The prestigious awards programme honours businesses and initiatives that have not only driven progress in the telecom industry, but have also ignited transformative shifts that have reshaped the digital landscape.
