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.

“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.
