Maxis Berhad opens the year 2013 with the launch of 4G LTE services. It is now available in selected parts of the Klang Valley including Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Damansara Utama, Desa Sri Hartamas, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Bandar Sunway and Cyberjaya following its midnight launch on 1 January 2013. Customers will be able to see speeds of up to 75Mbps with average speeds of 10 to 30Mbps on the Maxis 4G LTE network. Maxis 4G LTE service will be available in other areas very soon.
“This represents a crucial milestone in Maxis’ integrated journey. 4G LTE operates at download speeds 5-10 times faster than 3G and will enable and sustain a seamless experience of rich content across both our high-speed fixed and wireless network platform in the country. With Maxis 4G LTE, customers will experience a richer internet experience with greater download speeds, smoother HD video streams, lag-free gaming with better online satisfaction. Specifically for homes and businesses, Maxis 4G LTE will make possible super fast Internet access outside fibre broadband coverage. However, it is not just about speeds. Maxis, with our robust partnerships with leading device manufacturers and content players, are well placed to provide customers the true benefits of 4G LTE capabilities,” says Sandip Das, Chief Executive Officer, Maxis.
Customers in the 4G LTE coverage areas who want to experience 4G LTE service can walk into Maxis Centres in KLCC and Taman Tun Dr Ismail. Users can subscribe to any of the monthly Wireless Broadband packages from RM88. There is no mention of when other devices, including smartphones and tablets will be getting the 4G LTE network but it will arrive soon according to the telco company.
