Get up to speed with a 4G-LTE Samsung GALAXY S4 won’t ya?

Maxis Berhad (“Maxis”), the first Malaysian telco to launch 4G LTE services in Malaysia, has revealed that it has doubled its 4G LTE coverage in Klang Valley, and expanded its 4G LTE footprint to cover areas in Penang and Johor Bahru. Maxis is also the first to roll out 4G LTE in East Malaysia – Kuching and Kota Kinabalu. Maxis also expanded its 4G LTE-enabled device portfolio with the introduction of the 4G LTE-enabled Samsung GALAXY S4.

Maxis is the first telco to offer the 4G-LTE-enabled Samsung GALAXY S4 to customers. The Samsung super phone now joins Apple’s iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad 4, BlackBerry Q10, HTC One, Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL in the expanding 4G LTE device suite.

Maxis is also bringing a special limited time offer to Maxis One Club (MOC) members for the Samsung GALAXY S4. MOC members are entitled to purchase the Samsung GALAXY S4 for only RM999 when they sign up for TalkMore 78 (RM78/month) with a 6GB Data Plan (RM98/month) on a 24-month contract. Non-MOC members can take home the 4G LTE super phone for RM1,399 with TalkMore 78 + 3GB Internet Plan, for just RM176 per month.

The Samsung GALAXY S4 is the latest flagship from Samsung featuring the impressive Samsung-developed Exynos 1.7 Ghz octa-core processor, 13MP main camera and a host of smart features, synonymous with the GALAXY brand of smartphones. It is by far the fastest- and best-selling smartphone from Samsung, selling over 10 million units worldwide in just 3 months from its launch.

Maxis’ Joint Chief Operation Officer, Nasution Mohamed revealed today that there are over 130,000 customers currently enjoying 4G LTE service since the rollout on 1 January this year. The rapid network expansion now includes areas such as Bukit Damansara, Kepong, Sungai Besi, Sentul and Subang Jaya.

Over 40Mbps on Maxis 4G LTE with a HTC One at Sunway.

4G LTE lets you enjoy speeds of up to 75Mbps, with speeds typically ranging from 10-30Mbps in real world usage – a good 5-10 times faster than 3G. We’ve been getting impressive speeds in Kuala Lumpur city, Taman Desa, Bangsar and Sunway areas, typically ranging from 18Mbps – 40Mbps. Owners of 4G LTE-enabled phones need not subscribe to any 4G LTE plan (because it doesn’t exist at this point). Your device should have a nano-SIM or micro-SIM. As long as you are within 4G LTE coverage, your phone would switch to the faster network automatically. iPhone 5 users may need a small patch/software update to enable 4G LTE.
