U Mobile announced that it is the first telco to commercially launch 4.5G service on 1800 MHz and 2600 MHz in Malaysia, starting with Johor Bahru. Users can enjoy twice the speed of 4G through supporting devices such as the Huawei P10 Plus.
“U Mobile is very excited to be able to launch the 4.5G service in Johor Bahru. Customers in Johor Bahru can enjoy significant enhancement in their user experience,” said Wong Heang Tuck, CEO of U Mobile during the launching luncheon with the media in Johor Bahru, recently.
Haeng Tuck also shared that the telco is making a huge investment to upgrade its network to 4.5G this year. “U Mobile’s Capex investment will exceed RM1 billion this year. Most of it will go into the rollout of the additional spectrum awarded by the government last year.”
Users with devices that don’t support the 4.5G service will still see an increase of speed in their current service due to the upgrade.
