The mobile network giant of Malaysia, Celcom, has finally launched its new 4G broadband plan on April 23, 2013, which will enable downloads at a speed that can go up to 50 Mbps.
The new service is tied with the company’s First Data Pro plan and offers 10 GB data at RM 138 per month. As a promotional offer, Celcom is currently offering 4G LTE modem just for RM 199 (only with three-month fee subscription). The service and the promotional offer would be available only to the first 1000 customers in select Blue Cube outlets. Since the service is broadband-based through modem, people wanting to enable the 4G speeds on mobile devices like iPhone and others would have to wait a bit longer.
Celcom promises to introduce the 4G LTE to mobile devices soon and claims that the connection would be 10 times faster than the current speeds.
Currently, customers in Jalan Tun Razak, Bangsar, Jalan Pudu, Jalan Imbi, Danau Kota, KLCC in Klang Valley, Putrajaya, Bandar Sunway, and Shah Alam can enjoy the service. Customers in certain select locations in Melaka, Johor Bahru, Pulau Pinang, and Ipoh would also have access to 4G LTE services. The company has gone big in promoting their new service bringing in the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, for promotion. If the connection is as fast as it is being projected, it could be great for Malaysian internet users.
