Maxis has launch what it claims to be the first 5G international roaming service, which will enable its customers to use these services while travellingin in Singapore, Thailand, and Indonesia.
“We are pleased to have reached this important milestone with our roaming partners in these three countries and look forward to enabling our customers with the incredible speeds and latency of 5G when travelling,” said Gokhan Ogut, Maxis CEO in a statement.
“This is a testament to our strong commitment to enabling individuals and businesses to 'Always Be Ahead' with the best connectivity experience wherever they are,” he added.
Maxis said Once travellers arrive at any of these three destinations, customers can choose to roam on either Singtel in Singapore, AIS in Thailand, or Telkomsel in Indonesia.
The 5G roaming service will be activated automatically on any 5G-enabled device, it added.
Maxis customers using 5G while roaming will be charged according to existing 4G roaming packages with no extra charges, it said. Customers just need to access the Maxis app and click on the Maxis Roaming banner to subscribe to a preferred plan.
Hotlink customers meanwhile may just switch on data roaming to auto subscribe for a Data Roam Pass, Maxis said.
Alternatively, they can also manually subscribe by dialing *100#, go to 'international roaming', choose 'country’ and select one of the available passes, it added.
Maxis is also planning to launch the 5G roaming service to other popular destinations by the end of 2021.
