The Sistem Kabel Rakyat 1 Malaysia (SKR1M) is a 3700km optical fiber submarine cable system connecting Cherating, Kota Kinabalu, Miri, Bintulu, Kuching and Mersing, a domestic submarine cable system connecting Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, upgradable to 12.8 Tbps of capacity.
SKR1M was established through a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) collaboration between Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM) and the Malaysian Government through the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC). TT dotCom Sdn Bhd (TTdC), a wholly-owned subsidiary of TIME dotCom Berhad (TIME) also funded and owns a portion of this submarine cable.
SKR1M was built with the objective of enhancing the existing domestic submarine cable connectivity between Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak, thus catering for future bandwidth growth requirements.
NEC is the supplier of the SKR1M submarine cable system.
The SKR1M submarine cable system was ready for service in September 2017.
