Now Apple iPhone 5 is Supported by Maxis 4G LTE Network in Malaysia

Recently updated Apple’s supported LTE networks page listed Maxis as the only Malaysia operator. Maxis released new carrier settings and now you can use Maxis iPhone 5’s 4G LTE in Malaysia!

Maxis said 4G LTE 1800MHz is “Coming Soon”

Maxis was the first to announce 4G LTE service in Malaysia on January 1st, 2013.

Initially, due to MCMC license, Malaysian telcos are only given 2600 MHz spectrum for 4G LTE services. It has disappointed many Apple iPhone 5 owners because, while support multiple LTE bands, iPhone 5 does not support 2600MHz 4G LTE.

However, in a Maxis Get-Together Session in the end of January 2013, Maxis confirmed that it will support 4G LTE 1800MHz. How could Maxis has the privilege? I found a piece of information on Digital News Asia:

“…going by the technology-neutral licences awarded by the MCMC, Maxis does not need permission from the regulator”

That would explains the reason Maxis can have LTE services on 1800 spectrum, while other telcos cannot.

Over 2 months passed, we don’t get any update about 4G LTE 1800 MHz from Maxis since then.

Maxis iPhone 5 LTE Confirmed by Apple

Today, LiewCF discovers that the Apple supported LTE networks page has been quietly updated to add six more telcos (4 new countries and 1 U.S. telco). Maxis is the only telco listed in Malaysia to support iPhone 5 LTE (1800 MHz).

It is a great news for Malaysian iPhone 5 owners.

When first launched in December 2012 in Malaysia, iPhone 5’s new highlighted feature — 4G LTE support — is useless because no local telco support it. Then, in January 2013, Maxis and Celcom announced their 4G LTE services but only on 2.6GHz band. Disappointed.

Now, Malaysian Maxis iPhone 5 owners could expect to surf at super fast speed on their smartphone by riding on Maxis 4G LTE network.

Update: Maxis already roll out new carrier settings to support 4G LTE switch in iPhone 5. Tap Settings > General > About to install new carrier settings.

With the 4G LTE 1800 MHz support, Maxis is the only Malaysian operator supporting both 2600MHz and 1800MHz bands. Meaning, Maxis will support more LTE smartphones than other local operators. (Click to Tweet)

Currently, Maxis 4G LTE service is available in Klang Valley in the areas of Cyberjaya, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, Damansara Utama, Desa Sri Hartamas, Bandar Puchong Jaya and Bandar Sunway. Other areas that have partial coverage are SS2, Taman Paramount, Section 17 and 19 in Petaling Jaya, Plaza Damansara, Bandar Kinrara and Taman Wawasan in Puchong.

Other 4G LTE operators in Malaysia

There are 8 operators awarded 4G LTE license in Malaysia: Maxis, Axiata (Celcom), DiGi, P1, REDtone, U Mobile, YTL, Puncak Semangat.

So far, only Maxis (first to announce 4G LTE service) and Celcom (launch 4G LTE experience hubs) have related announcements in 2013. In 2012, DiGi was shouting that it “will be the first fully LTE-equipped network in Malaysia by 2013” but we haven’t heard the availability of DiGi 4G LTE service yet in 2013.
