Maxis 4G LTE network update

Currently,some Maxis iPhone 5 users have received update for enabling 4G LTE service on Maxis network.It has been reported on MalaysianWireless in this morning.Since iPhone 5 is not supporting 2600Mhz 4G LTE network which is initially applied on Malaysia’s 4G LTE network,the current carrier update from Maxis implies that Maxis has been supporting 1800Mhz 4G LTE network from now on.

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.

You can sign up Maxis Wireless Broadband plans of RM88 and above get the LTE modem at only RM400 to enjoy super speeds on the Maxis 4G LTE network.You can check out for more details at Maxis centers in KLCC or Taman Tun Dr. Ismail.Of course,if you have a 4G LTE mobile phone which also supports 2.6Ghz spectrum,you could ride on the fastest mobile wireless network right away.
