Powered by Astro Fibre, BIZfibre perfectly complements its commercial TV Packs, offering live sports, the biggest TV shows, blockbuster movies and breaking news.
Euan Smith, Astro’s Group Chief Executive Officer – Designate said, “As businesses become more global and competitive, it is critical that everyone, from entrepreneurs to large companies, has better access to faster and more reliable connectivity. SMEs are the backbone of the Malaysian economy, accounting for 97% of total business establishments. They generate 38% of GDP and provide half of the nation’s employment. We aspire to partner with SMEs, offering one-stop connectivity and entertainment solutions with world-class WiFi, plus engaging content that is 100% legal. Through this service, SMEs will have peace of mind knowing that they are subscribed to a legal TV commercial package, one that provides their customers with better service.”
“Listening to feedback from our commercial customers & prospects, we have designed our BIZfibre plans to enhance business performance through faster, more reliable, and stable connectivity. We have curated a range of value-added packages that meet all commercial needs, regardless of size or industry. Our BIZfibre and commercial TV Packs offer a unique value proposition, building on Astro’s rich content heritage & great service. We are confident BIZfibre will be an important contribution to the growth of our broadband and commercial customer base.”

Kevin Ng, Head of Enterprise Business from Astro said, “AstroBIZ, the enterprise arm of Astro, is pleased to introduce new premium commercial flexi packs bundled with BIZfibre at special introductory prices. We encourage commercial enterprises such as F&B outlets and hotels to only access content that are legal. Astro has invested substantially in high quality live sports and entertainment for our customers over the years because we know how much they value it.
