Celcom and Ericsson today had teamed up to showcase Malaysia’s first 5G trial. Not only this is the first in the country but it’s also the first 5G trial to be conducted in South East Asia utilising the higher 28GHz band.
Celcom aims to be a technology leader and they have invested over RM1 billion in the past year on its network. To cater for growing connectivity demands, Celcom has introduced its new Lightning Fast LTE network which will be rolled out in the months to come.
Utilising 4×4 MIMO and 256 QAM, Celcom claims to be the first telco in Malaysia to deliver ultra-fast download speeds of up to 480Mbps.
