Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) announce the allocation of the 2600 MHz spectrum band. What does that mean for the general public? They get to enjoy higher mobile broadband speeds. Also known as 4G it can offer mobile broadband speeds in excess of 100 Mbps.

Eight companies will be allowed access to the 2600 MHz spectrum band. They are, in no order, Celcom Axiata Bhd, DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd, Maxis Broadband Sdn Bhd, Packet One Networks (M) Sdn Bhd, Puncak Semangat Sdn Bhd, REDtone Marketing Sdn Bhd, U Mobile Sdn Bhd and YTL Communications Sdn Bhd.

"With this new technology, the people can look forward to improvements in their digital lifestyle. For the business community, cloud services, teleworking, teleconferencing and video type applications can be better experienced whilst on the move," said Dato' Mohamed Sharil, Chairman of MCMC.

Stepping away from the serious stuff, did you know that the recently launched PadFone 2 is the only mobile/tablet device that is LTE ready in Malaysia? Everyone's favourite iPhone 5 cannot support LTE in Malaysia because of the slight different spectrum in different region. In the US, iPhone 5's LTE spectrum is at 2100MHz but in our country, it is at 2600MHz. To sum it up, it is incompatible. So Apple enthusiast, you may want to delay your iPhone purchase if you need blazing fast 4G speed.
