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.
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.
5G is still a long way go but the folks at Qualcomm wants to enable gigabit wireless connectivity today. Their new X16 LTE is the first commercially announced modem that’s designed to deliver up to fibre optic 1Gbps speeds over today’s 4G LTE networks. That’s LTE Category 16 speeds, versus the current Cat 9 (600Mbps) and Cat 6 (300Mbps) standards that are supported on current flagship smartphones.
Three telecommunication companies – Celcom, TM and P1 have come together to announce a series of network sharing agreements. This would enable the 3 telcos to expand their reach and to provide a better internet experience for their customers.
The first agreement inked between Celcom and TM is to extend its partnership in TM’s Next-Gen Backhaul service. This would help Celcom to accelerate its 4G LTE coverage by providing a robust and high bandwidth capacity to their sites through TM’s fibre network.
