Telekom Malaysia grows IPTV revenues by over 300%

After a slow start in the IPTV business, Telekom Malaysia has revealed that it achieved significant growth in revenues for its ‘HyppTV’ service in 2012, with revenues rising by MYR 79mn (US$ 25mn) over the course of the year to reach a total of MYR 119mn.

Speaking to online news portal Digital News Asia, group CEO Datuk Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa attributed much of this growth to the higher customer base – though without giving specific numbers for the service, delivered over Malaysia’s High Speed Broadband (HSBB) network.

The exec also confirmed that in 2013 the rollout of fibre connections will be determined by a combination of demand and location (whether a home is in HSBB exchange areas, for example), adding that partnerships with property developers and industry associations will play a key role.

Finally, the Telekom Malaysia CEO indicated that the transformation towards an all-IP network will continue through 2018, at which point only a small percentage of access elements will still be on non-IP infrastructure.
