INTERNAL WIRING AND NETWORKING
The diagram illustrates the UniFi Dual Play service set-up
in your office. TM technicians will install a BTU inside your
office at your nearest existing telephone or primary computer
location. A fibre cable connection from an adjacent telephone
pole or underground DP will run to the BTU. For high-rise
buildings, there are some cases where fibre cabling will
terminate in the building’s communications room. The
connection will however continue to your office using the
building’s existing wiring. This condition will be subject to the
building owner’s authorisation and the existing building

Important Note:
Broadband access speeds will differ when connecting
to a Business Gateway via wireless (WiFi) as
compared to an Ethernet cable. This is primarily due to
the nature of wireless technology. Broadband access
speeds delivered via wireless technologies can also be
affected by various factors such as the actual positioning
of the Business Gateway, interference from other
electrical equipment in the vicinity, thickness of
13
internal walls, etc. Our Business Gateway is also
compatible with computers that are wireless enabled.
If you do not have a wireless-enabled computer, you
may be able to upgrade your computer by purchasing
our wireless USB adaptor. Other wireless USB

A maximum relocation fee of RM300 shall apply.

11. What speeds can I expect from UniFi?
46
The promoted speed is the size of the bandwidth
pipe from the customer’s broadband router up to
TM broadband access gateway system. However the
Internet access speed you receive can be impacted by
various factors such as:
i. Location of websites - Access to some international
websites could be slow due traffic volume, etc.
ii. Web server capacity - Some web servers have
restricted capacity to handle huge traffic demand
or may even restrict download speeds to ensure fair
access to all.
iii. Network congestion - Temporary congestion due to
unavoidable network maintenance/outages.
iv. Multiple users or applications - Running multiple
applications at the same time such as
BitTorent, can degrade access speeds. Multiple
users sharing the connection at the same time
can also degrade the speed.
v. PC operating systems - Some configurations of the
PC operating systems can compromise the Internet
access performance.
vi. WiFi (wireless) connectivity - As compared to wired
connectivity, wireless connectivity can slow down
Internet access.
12.What is the minimum speed TM promise to provide?
Since the actual speed you receive is based on some
factors outside our control, it would not be accurate
to simply “promise” a minimum speed. However,
UniFi provides you with better speed compared to
Streamyx. If you feel your speed is consistently and
substantially low, we can have our assurance staff
investigate your concern.

Quick Note About Speed Tester Websites
i. Web-based speed testers can be a quick way to check
your broadband speed. However their results may be
inaccurate.
ii. TM has no control over the quality of other provider’s
networks, so tests that travel onto other parts of the
Internet don’t always give accurate results on how your
connection is performing. They won’t always be right
as these sites can get busy and also be affected by
congestions.
iii. This means the test is merely measuring how fast data
is able to travel from one part of the Internet to another,
not how fast is the connection speed we deliver.
iv. Basically, the real test of an Internet connection is how
quickly you can download files from the Internet – such
as a game demo, or large files like a T V Show.
50
v. Most test sites do not handle high speed connections
correctly. This issue depends on the technology used
for testing.
14. What are some simple steps I can take to improve
speed?
i. Close all applications and windows to make sure you
are not uploading or downloading data at the same
time. This includes instant messaging, file sharing,
Internet calls, videos, and music.
ii. Ensure you do not have a Trojan horse or any
unwanted program. Consider connecting to your
router via an Ethernet cable (wired connection)
rather than a wireless link.
iii.Try to avoid multiple people sharing the connection
at the same time; this may result in slow speed.
51
52
iv. Use the service during off-peak period, when less
customers are utilising the service.
v. Finally, ensure your PC is virus free.
15.How can I improve the performance of my wireless
network?
For the best wireless performance, use the latest wireless
technology for all your computers, wireless cards/adapters
and wireless router equipment. This is superior to the
previous ‘B’ and ‘G’ standards.
Besides that, keep the wireless router as far away as you
can from:
i. Walls – especially thick ones made of concrete or brick
ii. Large or dense objects – avoid items containing metal
iii. Reflective or shiny surfaces – the signal can bounce off
windows and mirrors
iv. Electrical equipment – particularly cordless phones, baby
monitors and other devices that may work using radio
waves
16. What’s the difference between a wireless USB adaptor
and a wireless laptop card?
Wireless USB adaptor and wireless laptop card both
allow you to connect to the Internet. The difference is that
a wireless USB adaptor is an external device that can
easily be plugged in and removed, whereas a wireless
laptop card is usually built in the laptop.
17. How do I connect my server, firewalls, routers or other
additional network devices?
TM does not offer technical support for additional network
devices such as Home Plug, printer, gaming console, server,
firewalls or routers.
If you need help, please contact your supplier or the
manufacturer’s help line. However, we will provide all the
necessary information such as Fixed IP Address or DNS for
the said connection.
