U Mobile expands 3G network in East Malaysia

Months ago,U Mobile started to share with Maxis for its infrastructure in order to expand its 3G network to nationwide.Since then,the 3G coverage on U Mobile in West Malaysia came to be good.Well,recently it started the expansion in East Malaysia and the major cities and towns there had 3G service already.

Click to see the large pictureThe areas having 3G service are Kuching,Sibu,Bintulu,Miri.Labuan,Kota Kinabalu,Sandakan and Tawau.You can check the details of it coverage here




U Mobile’s 3G network supports up to 42Mbps DC-HSPA+ .The collaboration with Maxis will let U Mobile expand faster and save more capital.I believe it will also benefit on deploying 4G LTE network which U Mobile maybe will start the service in the year.

Anyway,as a user of U Mobile,I feel some service downgrade in terms of speed and downtime.I hope they could improve the service continuously with the growth of the number of users and don’t let me down.

  1. UMOBILE!! PLEASE MAKE YOUR 3G COVERAGE AVAILABLE AT KOTA SAMARAHAN(NEARBY KUCHING) ESPECIALLY FOR THE UNIVERSITY STUDENT OVERTHERE!!

      1. I don’t think U Mobile will expand their 4G coverage so fast because they are lacking of funds to build up more cell towers. Besides that, as you all know,for a business,they always consider how to profit first.Thus, West Malaysia will always be the priority because of the high popularity.
