Maxis Set To Launch Broadband Services.

Mobile operator, Maxis Communications Berhad, has announced the upcoming launch of residential broadband services over its High Speed 3G (Third Generation) network.

This makes Maxis the first company globally to use HSDPA (high speed data packet access) technology, a high-speed upgrade of the 3G network, for the rollout of large scale residential broadband services. HSDPA offers speeds that are three times faster than 3G and 20 times faster than traditional dial-up, allowing consumers to experience greatly improved Internet access to browsing, email, video streaming, online gaming and music downloads.

Consumers in the Klang Valley and Penang will be the first to enjoy Maxis' new broadband services, Maxis said in a statement Thursday. It said packages, pricing and coverage areas will be revealed at the formal launch of Maxis Broadband scheduled on Sept 26.

"This is a ground-breaking event for Maxis and Malaysia. Over the last 18 months, we have spearheaded global industry development by adjusting the 3G network to residential broadband requirements and by developing an affordable home modem that offers both Internet access and voice," chief executive officer Datuk Jamaludin Ibrahim said.

"Maxis is determined to become a major broadband player and we have already committed RM150 million to build up and launch this business," he said.
