In case you didn’t know, webe is also offering wireless broadband over 4G LTE. Initially available as a SIM-only plan, the new mobile operator is finally offering a MiFi modem which you use to share the connection with up to 10 devices.
Today, in Digi‘s network update briefing, the telco made a bold claim that they had the most advanced LTE-Advanced network in Malaysia. According to them, this is due to the fact that they have the widest LTE-A network coverage plus VoLTE capabilities with VoWiFi rolling out sometime soon.
webe was initially launched with a single mobile postpaid plan that provided unlimited calls, SMS and data on a single device. For those who need a SIM for data sharing, webe has finally introduced its webe broadband at RM59/month.
If you love watching your TV series and movies at home, Digi has introduced its new 4G broadband plans that come with free video streaming. This is similar to U Mobile’s Video-ONZ, where you can stream your video content without consuming your normal data quota.
Digi has finally jumped on the VoLTE (Voice over LTE) bandwagon which promises higher voice quality and quicker connectivity. It is now available in areas that are covered by Digi’s 4G LTE network.
As part of its network expansion exercise, U Mobile has just rolled out its first ever 4G LTE-Advanced site in Malaysia. LTE-Advanced or also known as 4G+ offers faster speeds than conventional 4G. In real life usage, this would enable download speeds beyond 100Mbps which is made possible through carrier aggregation.
TM today has officially launched webe, its digital mobility arm to complement its existing fixed broadband and convergence business. Since its
launch brand reveal on 13 April, TM aspires to do things differently, promising to reimagine the mobile space.
UPDATE: Yes has unveiled more postpaid and prepaid offerings. More specs for the Yes Altitude Android smartphone.
UPDATE 2: We now have a list of compatible devices.
Yes 4G is finally in the mobile business as they have unveiled its commercial 4G LTE postpaid plan. When Yes 4G LTE was launched about 2 weeks ago, they had bundled free prepaid SIMs, with 30GB of quota, with every new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) device. If you’ve been waiting for a postpaid alternative, this could be it.
Yes is Malaysia’s fifth telco to launch 4G LTE and they are about to reveal their full plans at the end of the month. Ahead of its official roll out, owners of the new Samsung Galaxy J (2016) series (J1, J5 and J7) are able to try out their network with the bundled prepaid SIM.
I have been using the SIM for a week and here are my findings so far.
Celcom says they are working towards building the most advanced 4G network in the country. To achieve that, they are undergoing a nationwide modernisation exercise with Ericsson Malaysia and Huawei Technologies. More than 4,600 communication towers will be upgraded with the latest 4G equipment and software.
