Get on 4G
U Mobile is the latest to launch its 4G Long Term Evolution service which is now available in strategic areas in the Klang Valley and Johor Bahru.
Existing users of its prepaid and postpaid plans, as well as broadband customers, can now enjoy faster Internet service without additional subscription, registration or having to change the SIM card.
For instance, users of its pospaid or prepaid plan can activate the service via SMS by sending the message to 28118 with the text “LTE ON”.
The faster Internet service will allow its customers to browse the Net, stream videos, upload and download files, and, most importantly, stay connected with friends and family.
“As the leading data centric operator, the roll out of 4G LTE services is a testament that we understand our customers, as well as industry needs and trends,” said U Mobile chief operating officer and acting chief executive officer Wong Heang Tuck.
For now, the LTE service covers Bandar Sunway, Subang Jaya, Puchong and Berjaya Times Square, as well as Taman Molek in Johor Bahru.
The company will be expanding its coverage gradually to more areas so that more of its subscribers can enjoy speeds of up to 75Mbps (megabits per second).
U Mobile is among the nine industry players that have been awarded with the 2,600MHz spectrum by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
As part of the 4G LTE launch, U Mobile is offering special device-bundle plans until the end of January. For instance, customers can buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 for RM999 if they sign up for the Ultimate Device 158 plan which has a commitment fee of RM120 per month.
