Malaysia’s Packet One network has announced its migration from Wimax to TD-LTE as part of its P1 2.0 plan, putting yet another nail in the Wimax coffin.

P1 CEO Michael Lai said that the operator will be the only one in Malaysia and one of the few telcos in the world to offer fiber broadband alongside a 4G wireless service when the service goes live in late March.

P1 started out as a fixed wireless 4G broadband provider and later moved to nomadic as coverage expanded. Most of P1’s equipment is already dual-mode Wimax and TD-LTE.

Lai also said that he wanted to focus on the business market, as currently 90% of P1’s customers are consumers.
