Introducing
Maxis 4G LTE

1G, 2G, 3G and now 4G. What does it all mean?

Mobile communications began with simple voice calls on 1G or 1st generation network. Then came SMS and basic internet functions on 2G. Afterwards, 3G offered speeds that allowed better browsing and video streaming experience, faster downloads and various mobile applications.

Maxis has now introduced 4G LTE - the true 4G. LTE or "Long Term Evolution" is a wireless platform standard that is the most advanced available globally. Maxis 4G LTE offers speeds up to 75Mbps and typical average speeds of 10Mbps to 30Mbps*. This broadband revolution will change the way we work and play, once again.

*Speeds are on a best efforts basis depending on factors such as location, coverage, distance from communication tower and number of simultaneous users.

How fast is 4G?

The following table illustrates the speed improvement from 3G to 4G.

Actual speeds may vary.

Seamless experience

Maxis 4G LTE network works seamlessly with our existing 3G networks. Our 3G/HSPA+ network is already providing speeds of up to 21Mbps and 81% population coverage from 5,200 sites. Our HSPA+ Dual Carrier network has over 3,500 sites covering most major towns nationwide and supports speeds of up to 42Mbps.
