Maxis yesterday shooed in the new year with the launch of Malaysia's first commercial LTE services in parts of the nation's Klang Valley.
 
The incumbent operator announced the commencement of services in Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Damansara Utama, Desa Sri Hartamas, Bandar Puchong Jaya, Bandar Sunway and Cyberjaya.
 
Maxis, which was one of eight operators to receive a 2,600-MHz 4G license in early December, has committed to invest 500 million ringgit ($164 million) towards rolling out its LTE network over the next few years. 
 
The company will initially be offering modem based wireless broadband services over the network. The plans come with between 3GB and 48GB of data, split evenly into peak and non-peak periods, for prices ranging from 48 ringgit ($16) to 158 ringgit.
 
Maxis said in a statement that service offerings will be extended to smartphones and tablets “very soon,” but did not provide further details.
 
CEO Sandip Das said the company will also soon be ready to provide value-added 4G enabled services to its subscribers, thanks to its “robust partnerships” with device makers and content providers.
 
He said Maxis' 4G subscribers can expect real-world average speeds of between 10-Mbps and 30-Mbps.
