Every telco wants to claim the best 4G network in the country. We’ve seen it blaring in advertisements everywhere – the fastest, the widest and the most unlimited offering in Malaysia. Are those claims justified with actual facts? And most importantly, what does it even mean to you as a consumer?
To keep you better informed, webe CEO CC Puan wants to debunk some common myths about 4G networks. He wants to tell it as it is so that you as a consumer can see beyond the advertising claims. Check out the videos after the break.
If you’re curious about webe’s 4G network performance, we’ve gotten some speedtest results from a tipster.
Following TM’s acquisition 2 years ago, P1 is now revamped to webe. Webe is not just Malaysia’s latest telco but it also marks TM’s re-entry in offering the mobile services. To differenciate themselves, webe is positioning themselves as a community powered by 4G.
Many of you might not have heard of Webe, but after today’s set of events, they’re probably going to be on everyone’s lips. We have speculated in the past that Webe might become the next 4G LTE operator (under P1 and TM) and it looks like our suspicions might have just become reality.
What’s more, it also seems that Webe might just have the best mobile 4G LTE plan yet.
Are you planning to subscribe to UniFi? You’ll have to pay more each month as they have revised the pricing for its current UniFi Advance offering for 30Mbps and 50Mbps. When TM introduced these plans in October last year, they were offered at an introductory price of RM179/month for 30Mbps and RM229/month for 50Mbps.
Effective 1st April, the base 30Mbps UniFi Advance is going for RM199/month and if you want faster speeds, it will cost you RM249/month.
TM’s telecommunication offering will be complete with the launch of its new 4G mobile service that’s happening on 13th April. At the moment, they have a triple play lineup with Fibre Internet, voice services and a formidable IPTV offering. Having a mobile service will be the final piece of the puzzle as TM will be able to cover users both at home and while on the go.
According to TM’s group CEO Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa in an interview with TheStar, it’s going to be exciting and they are on track to roll out its mobile service through P1.
UPDATE: Celcom Home Broadband is now official. Available for FIRST Gold customers in the Klang Valley only.
The fixed fibre broadband scene is heating up as Celcom joins the race with their Home Broadband service offering speeds of up to 10Mbps.
UPDATE: TIME has responded, TM bites back. Round 2…fight!
UPDATE 2: And it looks like the battle has come to an end.
While our fibre broadband service providers are locked in a battle to provide the best value, customer service and Internet speeds, the real question everyone should be asking is…who would win in a battle of wits?
Ah, I love the smell of napalm in the morning.
For a long time now, the 4G operator scene in Malaysia has been dominated by four companies — Celcom, Digi, Maxis and U Mobile. However, at the end of last year, we reported that there would be a new player entering the scene in 2016 and it seems this could be it.
