U Mobile recently announced that it would be working together with Huawei to launch its new 4.5G service in Malaysia.
Specifically, U Mobile and Huawei will be launching its 4.5G service via the 1,800MHz and the 2,600MHz waveband, and they will be starting in Johor Bahru, allowing residents in the state to be the first to enjoy the telco’s new and faster mobile service.
“U Mobile is very excited to be able to launch 4.5G service in Johor Bahru. From today [May 23, 2017], customers in Johor Bahru will enjoy significant enhancement in their user experience. For those who are using smartphones that support 4.5G service, such as Huawei P10 Plus, the enhancement will be even more significant with up to twice the speed of 4G, making their experiences in streaming, downloading and browsing so much faster and better,” Wong Heang Tuck, CEO of U Mobile, said.
“We are delighted that Malaysian customers can now experience a better and faster mobile broadband service based on 4.5G technologies. The new service not only allows customers to enjoy new initiatives like high definition (HD) video whenever and wherever they are, it is also a key stepping stone for the realization of Internet of Things (IoT). We look forward to working with U Mobile and other industry partners to bring new and innovative services to more customers and vertical sectors in the near future,” Abraham Liu Kang, CEO of Huawei Malaysia, also commented about the collaboration between his company and U Mobile.
