Maxis has announced that customers using the iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad 4 can now enjoy the speed of its 4G LTE network.
Malaysian companies have launched digital-only mags with a regional target -- this and other developments make a good case for Malaysia to become the Asian heart for digital media, argues Karamjit Singh.
Long Term Evolution (LTE) may have come to Malaysia but the gestation period for its widespread use might take longer than mobile operators may like, writes Edwin Yapp.
Initially positioned as a disruptor to the incumbent telcos, while making a bet on the once highly touted WiMAX technology as its platform, Green Packet Bhd is now betting its future on the same technology platform as the rest of them -- LTE. And it is swallowing some bitter tablets, notes Karamjit Singh.
Maxis recorded revenue of RM8.967 billion for the financial year ended Dec 31 2012, 1.9% up from the RM8.8 billion in 2011, on the back of higher revenue from all business segments.
With Maxis taking a market leadership position in LTE rollout in Malaysia, it is timely to ask two questions: Will the LTE market be a handset-dominated one? And will Maxis adopt a premium positioning? Karamjit Singh explores the issue.
Maxis has launched two 4G LTE smartphones: The Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL, the first two to be activated on the cellular provider’s 4G LTE (Fourth Generation Long Term Evolution) network.
Spurred on by a recent columnist comments, Edwin Yapp ponders whether techincal personnel in the wireless industry reach a ceiling and wonders whether it should be so.
In launching its 4G over LTE on Jan 2, Maxis caught everyone by surprise and has put pressure on competitors like Celcom and DiGi to speed up their own rollouts.
Maxis said that its 4G LTE service, delivered on the first “true” 4G network in Malaysia, is now available in selected parts of the Klang Valley including Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Damansara Utama, Desa Sri Hartamas, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Bandar Sunway and Cyberjaya.
