U Mobile has signed agreement with ZTE to bring LTE in Malaysia. The agreement is a two pronged development which will see U Mobile extending its 42 Mbps mobile network in Central, Negeri Sembilan and the Northern region by the 2nd half of this year and the installation of LTE platforms across Malaysia soon.
Within the next 12 months, U Mobile will upgrade it’s 42 Mbps to 84 Mbps capability. A user’s internet experience is likely to be ten times faster than the current rate.
“We are very pleased to have ZTE as our strategic partner to enhance and extend our 3G high speed network from the Central Region to other major cities and areas across Malaysia,” said Dr Kaizad Heerjee, Chief Executive Officer of U Mobile.
ZTE has recently completed a successful pilot run of the LTE. The readiness of this technology simply defines that once the spectrum is made available and device is readily available for the public, LTE is not away.
The large-scale deployment of this high-speed wireless network is yet another proactive pioneering effort from U Mobile to further support the Government’s national agenda themed the Economic Transformation Program ETP, 10th and 11th Malaysia Plans, of which constant improvement of broadband access is one of the key growth drivers.
