The roll-out of 5G in Malaysia by mobile telecommunications service provider U Mobile Sdn Bhd on Nov 3, 2022 offers faster connectivity speeds, ultra-low latency and greater bandwidth to its customers.
The move is in line with the government’s vision of a single wholesale network for 5G deployment. Through a 5G Access Agreement with Digital Nasional Bhd, the telco has linked its 4G network with its partner’s 5G network to create a seamless connectivity experience.
U Mobile’s subscribers already enjoy its 92.7% long-term evolution population coverage. Now, its customers can leverage its 5G network through the telco’s 5G-ready postpaid and prepaid plans at no extra cost.
The fifth-generation cellular network offers speeds up to 100 times faster than 4G, which translates into ultra-fast download and upload data speeds. U Mobile’s 5G network also delivers up to five times quicker responses, allowing users to send and receive data more efficiently.
Users also benefit from leveraging 1,000 times more connections, with approximately one million connected devices per sq km. 5G is also five times more energy-efficient compared to earlier generation cellular networks, making it more sustainable.
Fast, robust and reliable, 5G will transform industries and improve the user experience. It is set to not only deliver a positive impact to the way we live, work, and play but also elevate businesses and services with enhanced connectivity and efficiency.
