On March 2010, Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) launched its High Speed Broadband (HSBB) service, called ‘UniFi‘. TM’s UniFi high speed broadband packages comprises services of high speed Internet, video (IPTV), and phone, with speeds of 5 Mbps, 10Mbps and 20Mbps.
Upon sign up, the customer will receive 4 pieces of equipment:
- Fiber Broadband Termination Unit (BTU), ie. where you connect the fiber optic cable into.
- WiFi router (D-Link, D-615 with custom firmware), which is plugged into the fiber BTU.
- Set-Top box for IPTV and VoD, which will plug into the WiFi router.
- DECT phone plugged into the Fiber BTU.
I’m not going to rant about the UniFi or TMNet’s services, nor speed, nor the much debated bandwith cap that TM said they’re going to impose.
I’m going to talk about the security (or the lack thereof) of the default WiFi router setup.
