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.
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.
