The expansion will extend the telco’s 3G network coverage to 80% of the population by year end. As it stands, the it’s 3G network have about 60% of the population covered.
Mark Dioguardi, the Executive Vice President and Head of Network and Technology at Maxis said that the telco has a measurably bettter network in terms of call quality, coverage and the browsing performance.
Maxis indicated that there is now a significant shift in the way its subscribers are using its network, where about 70% its traffic is purely data. Maxis expects this number to grow to 80% by the end of the year. Speculation: Is Maxis making way for more data hungry devices like the iPad?
