The collaboration between Telekom Malaysia Berhad and property developer Emerald Capital Sdn Bhd is the first in Perak offering high-speed internet connection to residences in the state.

Executive Councillor for Public Facilities, Infrastructure, Energy and Water, Dato’ Zainol Fadzi Paharuddin said that this was a positive co-operation for the betterment of Perak.

“These days, broadband internet is essential, not only in the city centre but also in the outskirts. It’ll be a value-added service for the residents and a plus point for potential property purchasers. New property owners no longer have to deal with internet service providers because it’s ever-ready and they just have to activate the service.”

Zainal Fadzi said this to the media after the signing of an agreement between Telekom Malaysia and Emerald Capital for the development of D’Festivo Residences in Ipoh recently.

Present at the signing ceremony were Telekom Malaysia (Perak) General Manager Badrul Hisham Bahari and Business Development Director for Emerald Capital, Yau Kean Leong.

Through the agreement, property owners and residents of the 240 condominium units of D’ Festivo Residences, as well as the nine commercial units, will get to enjoy UniFi high speed internet access.
