For YTL Comms to be a credible competitor, it cannot stumble the way it did when it first came into the picture: The wireless operator landscape today is very different from what it was six years ago, writes Edwin Yapp.
YTL Comms launched its new all-IP YES 4G LTE network today, becoming the first telco in Malaysia to offer a Voice-over-LTE service too.
YTL Comms CEO Wing K. Lee is excited about finally being able to compete on an even footing against the other telcos, with the launch of its LTE network, writes Karamjit Singh.
MediaCorp is inviting media startups to join the second phase of its Mediapreneur incubator programme.
Singapore’s MediaCorp has announced the appointment of Dr Francis Yeoh to spearhead the next phase of its Mediapreneur incubator programme aimed at media startups.
A recent report by a local telco analyst got Edwin Yapp thinking if migrating to TD-LTE would give WiMax player YTL Communications an edge.
YTL Communications and Intel Malaysia have formalised an agreement that would see the introduction of Intel-based integrated 4G laptops and tablets for the 1BestariNet programme which seeks to deliver a cloud-based virtual learning platform and high-speed Internet connectivity to 10,000 schools nationwide.
It was a low profile introduction for the Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary owned telco, Altel Sdn Bhd, one of the nine telecommunications companies with some 2.6GHz spectrum allocated for Long Term Evolution (LTE) services.
Until YTL Comms landed the 1BestariNet project last year from the Ministry of Education, it was looking like the company would struggle to fulfil the grandiose promise laid out by its executive chairman Francis Yeoh, writes Karamjit Singh.
