TM High Speed Broadband (HSBB) Exchange Boxes

Well, I don’t know what else to call these, so I’ll just call them “exchange boxes” for now.  These are the things that are in front of your row of houses, if you live in a house.  They are green in colour, at least in my part of the woods – TM and their contractors may use different shaped, sized and coloured boxes depending on the location, but I would guess that they would be consistent and use the same box – it can’t be cheap manufacturing these boxes.  There’s also a TM logo on the boxes itself.  The TM contractors are busy pulling those fibre cables where I live (and boy, are those fibre cables thin, compared to the bulk that are the old copper wires which our telephone line still uses!).  The capacity of these fibre cables are also many many times that of the copper wires.
The process is quite simple – TM will engage a contractor to plant these boxes in your housing area, and the contractor will then pull the fibre cables which are connected to some sort of telephone exchange.  They then test it, and once everything is OK, hand them over to Kedai Telekom who will “do their thing”.  Once a customer decides to sign up, another contractor will be despatched to your house, to pull another set of fibre cables from this exchange box into your house – every house has to be wired individually, I was told.
So, if you suddenly see these green coloured boxes in your housing area, chances are you’re being wired for TM’s High Speed Broadband (HSBB)!  Wow, I can’t wait to test out my 50Mbps line – imagine – I can probably download all of the internet in a week, and then I can retire from this business for good  :P
