U Mobile Sdn Bhd is looking at accelerating its network expansion this year, hoping to take advantage of the additional spectrum it is about to be granted.
Newcomer U Mobile may be only the No 4 mobile operator in Malaysia, but it has been slowly creeping up on the ‘Big 3’ and its CEO Wong Heang Tuck believes it can close the gap even further this year. Goh Thean Eu has the story.
Malaysia's fourth largest mobile operator U Mobile Sdn Bhd is going to be aggressive with its Fourth Generation/ Long Term Evolution (4G LTE) network rollout this year as it aims to close the gap with the top three operators.

The anxious wait for spectrum refarming will have every telco CEO on tenterhooks, writes Karamjit Singh, with a recent MCMC industry briefing shedding some light on the factors that will influence the regulator’s thinking.
U Mobile has announced an expansion strategy to strengthen its network through the rollout of an additional 1,000 new 3G (Third Generation) and 1,000 new 4G LTE (Fourth Generation/ Long-Term Evolution) sites.
U Mobile has signed a ‘master infrastructure services agreement’ with communications infrastructure services company edotco that the former said would accelerate its network rollout and improve customer experience.
The action is all happening in the telco space in Malaysia, says Karamjit Singh.
U Mobile Sdn Bhd has announced the appointment of Wong Heang Tuck (pic) as its chief executive officer effective April 1, after sacking former CEO Jaffa Sany Ariffin last August, citing “disciplinary reasons.”
U Mobile has officially announced the availability of its LTE or 4G service, offering customers high-speed mobile Internet of up to 75 megabits per second (Mbps) for prepaid, postpaid and broadband plan customers.
