Beginning this month, Digi has started rolling out more 4G coverage with its newly acquired 900MHz spectrum. As the network continues to expand, Digi currently claims to have 86% nationwide population coverage with 4G LTE.
As Digi expands its 4G network, they have not forgotten its users that spend most of their time indoors. If you’ve been having poor signal at home or while at work, that will soon change in the second half of 2017.
YTL Communications and Proton have announced a special Yes 4G LTE bundle for those who drive away a brand new Proton. This offer is exclusive for new customers of selected Proton models starting today and it will replace its previous Proton-Huddle XS promo.
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.
After introducing the Galaxy A (2016) series, Samsung Malaysia is now turning its attention to its new Galaxy J series for 2016. These are their entry-level offering which helped to drive volumes for the Korean smartphone maker. There will be 3 models – the Galaxy J1, J5 and the J7.
Unlike other events, this launch involves a telco which has been quiet for some time. If you can’t wait for webe, this could be the next telco to look out for.
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.
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.
