Astro Malaysia Holdings Berhad (Astro) has partnered with Allo Technology Sdn. Bhd. (Allo) to offer a unique bundle of high-speed broadband services together with Astro's content in correlation with the Government's National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan ("NFCP"). As part of this partnership, for every subscription of the 50 Mbps and 100 Mbps priced at RM 99, and RM 129 respectively, users will enjoy Astro's Family Pack content of over 60 channels. These include Astro Ria, Astro Prima, Astro Arena, Astro Awani, Astro AEC, Astro Xiao Tai Yang, NatGeo WILD, and FOXlife and HD content, among others. On top of that, all subscribers will also have free access to Astro GO with more than 15,000 On Demand titles (when connected to their set-top box) on their mobile devices and computers.

Henry Tan, Group CEO of Astro, said, "The Allo partnership will expand the current broadband home-passes from TM, Maxis and TIME by over 150,000 new households and businesses over the next 18 months. This will help us expand Astro Broadband's reach beyond urban areas into areas not fully covered by our existing partnerships, including Alor Gajah, Cyberjaya, Bangsar South and many more suburban areas."

Rodzi Ahmad, CEO of Allo, said, "Allo is focusing on bringing fibre connection to unpenetrated areas that are commercially viable. This partnership allows us to extend the high-speed broadband and content services into these areas so that currently underserved consumers can enjoy the services."
