If 800Mbps is not fast enough for you, TM is finally offering speed up to 2Gbps for their Unifi Fibre Internet. However, if you find 2Gbps is too much, TM also announced their new 1Gbps. This new offering is set to redefine high-speed Internet access in Malaysia with TM’s broader fibre availability.
The Unifi 2Gbps plan is a significant upgrade from their previous offerings, more than doubling the speed from their current 800Mbps plan. The 2Gbps ultra-fast speed will be able to support more devices which is really helpful especially for those with a bigger household.
Unifi 2Gbps Plan

The new 2Gbps plan is slightly pricier than the existing 800Mbps plan. However, TM is including access to the Unifi TV service and several other subscription content such as Disney+. There’s also an introductory promotion of RM399/month for the Unifi 2Gbps plan and RM349/month for the Unifi 1Gbps plan.
Also worth mentioning is the upload speed is a rather significant increase over the 200Mbps from the 800Mbps plan. The 1Gbps upload speed of the Unifi 2Gbps plan is double the speed of TIME Fibre’s 2Gbps plan. It’s great to see TM finally playing catch-up to TIME fibre.
Unifi 2Gbps Router and Mesh
As for equipment, TM is giving D-Link’s DPN-FX3060V Wi-Fi 6 certified all-in-one optical network router (ONR) which comes with an intergrated fibre modem and Wi-Fi 6 router. Unfortunately, the ONR only comes with Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports and only Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 capability.
This means the Ethernet LAN speed will not exceed the 1Gbps speed on a single device even when you’re subscribed to the 2Gbps plan. As such, Unifi only promise a maximum aggregate speed of 2Gbps when several devices are using the Internet.
TM also does not allow the use of third party optical fibre modem. It is not possible to use a third fibre modem to get speed faster than 1Gbps on a single device even with the 2Gbps plan. Getting over 1Gbps speed when using the Wi-Fi will be hard with the rather mediocre Wi-Fi 6 AX3000 specifications.
TM is also including free Wi-Fi 6 certified mesh Wi-Fi units for new users subscribing to the 800Mbps up to the Unifi 2Gbps plan. The mesh Wi-Fi units will be really helpful especially to those staying in a bigger homes by expanding the Wi-Fi coverage signal to every corner of the property.
More info are available from TM’s portal here. However, just bear in mind that it will come with a 24 months contract for new and customers who upgrade to the new plans. TM is also providing a guarantee where any service disruption will be resolved within 12 working hours for the new ultra-fast plans.
TM said the 1Gbps and 2Gbps plan will be available nationwide. However, TM also mentioned that it will depends on port availability and they did not release a detailed coverage map where the faster plan can be support. I suggest visiting your nearest TM point to check whether your location is covered.
Does it support third party routers like Asus or even my trusty Mi AX6000(with using switch of course)
It comes with the all in one modem router, you can add your own router but you wouldn’t be able to exceed the 1Gbps single port speed limit.
yeap, got mine installed yesterday with the “new” D-Link ONU+Router. Blacktubi, if you mind could you do a tutorial on using the new 1Gbps/2Gbps router all in one but using a 3rd party router like the Google Nest or a Mi AX6000 routers?
As before i read your tutorial on using a switch, issit the same? Because i cant get mine working. It use to work with the old Unifi Huawei ONU modem. Now i have to switch back to the old modem first instead of the new one that Unifi provided.
You cannot do PPPoE mode on your third party router anymore if you want to get 2Gbps speed. Only dynamic IP or automatic IP mode is possible.
I just get my new D-LINK DPN-FX3060V router! Since like cant link to my asus rog ax11000 using automatic IP mode! Can anyone upload video not to get this stuff work! If just AP mode can use meaning ax11000 totally useless! thanks
Make sure you reset your GT-AX11000 if you migrated from the PPPOE configuration previously else the VLAN setting will be stuck. Try using a different LAN port as well.
Hello, my Unifi zte 2 in 1 modem+router recently breakdown. The TM technician said they no longer provide modem and can only replace my old one with another 2 in 1 modem router (aztech DS244WSGV-V3), charge rm189+53 or renew contract. Can I setup my own router from this router modem? I actually wanted a pure modem replacement from TM so that I could setup my own router, as the modem have better lifespan etc, correct? Some more I am very reluctant to rely on TM’s setup as they took one week to attend my ticket, so I actually have one… Read more »
Unfortunately, I believe you are on a VDSL infrastructure that still uses the telephone cable based on the model. Your choices are limited, you are stuck with using the TM provided modem router combo. It’s still possible to use your own router with the modem router but I don’t think pure VDSL modem is still widely available.
Ya, old building. I went ask at lowyat shops, must use TM provided VDSL modem. There seems to be used VDSL modem on laz/shope but I’m not sure its safe… No choice 🙁
Thx for the input.
How come they say it is not possible to use a third-party fiber modem to get a faster speed than 1gbps? I do have SFP+ module fiber for the Ubiquiti Dream Machine Pro. The device should handle up to 10Gbps data rate just fine. Maybe the tm backend did not support or this 2gbps is just a gimmick to say that they could provide 2gbps but not really.
Unfortunately, TM only provide GPON authentication to equipments that are provisioned by them.
