For those wanting to experience 4G LTE on the iPhone 5, Celcom has finally joined the bandwagon as it gets listed under Apple iPhone 5’s 4G LTE supported telco. This follows after Maxis’s commercial availability of 4G LTE on 1800MHz 2 months back. When Celcom announced commercial 4G LTE service, it was initially rolled out with a standalone wireless broadband service without any smart phone services.
A carrier software update is expected for iPhone 5 users on Celcom which allows users to enable LTE under Cellular Data settings. For more information on LTE availability, head over to Celcom’s 4G LTE coverage page.
Thanks @J18Way for the heads up!

The wait for Celcom’s 4G LTE service is finally over and they have finally revealed its Broadband Plan with download speeds up to 50Mbps. The 4G LTE service is tied with their Celcom First Data Pro plan which offers 10GB of data at RM138/month.
At the moment they cover Bandar Sunway, Shah Alam, Putrajaya, Danau Kota, Jalan Imbi, Jalan Pudu, Bangsar, Jalan Tun Razak, KLCC in the Klang Valley. Selected places at Ipoh, Pulau Pinang, Johor Bahru and Melaka are covered as well. You can check for the full list of its coverage here.
As an early bird promotion, they are offering the 4G LTE Modem for only RM199 with 3 months free subscription. This is limited to the first 1,000 sign up and it can be done at Blue Club @ Sunway Pyramid, Blue Cube Pavilion and Blue Club Menara Celcom tomorrow onwards (23rd April 2013).
To promote Celcom’s 4G LTE service as the fastest network, they have gotten some help from Usain Bolt which is known as the fastest man in the world.
Check out the official commercial starring the Jamaican sprinter after the break. For more information on the service, head over to Celcom’s 4G LTE page for more info.
Celcom today has unveiled its foray into the LTE race by launching its 4G LTE Experience Hubs. The experience centres are located at Menara Celcom in Kuala Lumpur and its Blue Club flagship store at Sunway Pyramid.
Celcom’s 4G LTE network runs on the 2600MHz LTE spectrum which came into effect this year. This practically means if you have a new device that supports 2600MHz (Band 7), it is likely to be compatible with their network once their service is commercially available. Among its future 4G LTE product portfolio includes Huawei’s array of 4G LTE USB dongles, tablets & smart phones.
For a start, Celcom will only be introducing data only plans in February and smart phone plans are expected to follow right after.If you’re eager to try it out yourself, head over to their experience hubs.

Information made available to us has revealed that Celcom is very close to launching its LTE network and it likely to happen this week. Supporting this information is the LTE experiential booth that Celcom has setup at its headquarters in KL. Customers wanting to know more about Celcom’s LTE network can visit Menara Celcom to try out the service themselves.
Like Maxis, we expect Celcom to have its LTE service available in a few key market areas and gradually expand coverage and subscriber momentum builds up. Also, we don’t expect Celcom to offer LTE smartphones in its initial launch however there are three phones in the market right now that supports the 2600Mhz LTE standard in Malaysia – ASUS PadFone 2, Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 – but it remains to be seen if Celcom (and Maxis) have provisioned its network to allow these devices to surf on LTE data.
We’ll be on hand to try our Celcom’s network when it is available, stay tuned for updates on plans and pricing. And finally, no, the iPhone 5 will not work on Malaysia’s LTE network. Hope this clears any confusion.
With telcos gearing up for 4G LTE in 2013, Celcom has has announced that they will upgrading their network across Malaysia to be LTE ready. Just like DiGi, customers may experience service interruptions but Celcom strives to minimise downtime as short as possible.
According to their announcement, the service interruptions will only happen a few hours a day for each area. This affects voice calls, mobile internet and reloading/transferring of credit. Celcom has posted a full list of areas which they are upgrading from today until February 2013 and it is interesting to point out that no upgrading works will be performed during festive weeks.
The full list can be viewed here.
Thanks @weisheatan for the alert!
Celcom’s CEO Shazalli Ramly was quoted saying: “We have clear reasons for doing (these) trials and (find out) what the technology can do (for us). Ericsson and Huawei are doing the trials for us.” If we read that correctly, sounds like Celcom is merely watching its vendors doing the salesman demo. Apart from all the hype and buzz that LTE is said to deliver, they didn’t share any results or speed capabilities that the technology has to offer on their test network. It would be interesting if Celcom pulls a PR stunt by claiming highest 4G connectivity at the peak of Mount Kinabalu.
