Many of us are waiting eagerly for 5G to come to Malaysia and it looks like Maxis is ready to serve. The telco company will be collaborating with Huawei to accelerate 5G in Malaysia as they signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Huawei at the 2019 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain.
The MoU states that both parties will work to speed up the rollout of 5G technology in Malaysia; this includes working on full-fledged trials with end-to-end systems and services.
According to Maxis CEO-designate Gokahn Ogut, Maxis has long begun their 5G journey and are already focused on live trials, investments and evolving their network infrastructure. Huawei Malaysia CEO Michael Yuan has also stated that the development of 5G requires the cooperation of its partners and the company is keen to help Maxis expand the boundaries of their business with their simplified 5G products.
No date has been set on when Maxis will start providing 5G but you can expect the telco company's goal to bring faster internet speeds in Malaysia is underway.
