Kuala Lumpur, 07 February 2016

KUALA LUMPUR, 15 February 2016: In reference to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission’s (MCMC) announcement on the reallocation of spectrum on 1 February 2016, U Mobile confirms that it has been allocated with 15 years spectrum assignment of 2x5MHz of 900MHz and 2x15MHz of 1800MHz for full nationwide implementation starting 1 January 2017.

U Mobile is fully supportive of MCMC’s intention to create a vibrant and more competitive market by allocating the 900MHz and 1800MHz bands to all four operators. These allocations will enable U Mobile to further enhance its network quality and services. As such, U Mobile is now even more equipped to introduce affordable services to the rakyat for the ultimate mobile experience through greater speed and coverage.

U Mobile is looking forward to the timely review of spectrum allocation for 700MHz, 2300MHz and 2600MHz bands by the end of 2016. To create a balanced and competitive market where the public’s interest is a primary goal, service providers need a full suite of spectrum to operate more effectively. This will ultimately benefit end-users as the Malaysian Government and MCMC continue to positively shape the communications landscape in the years to come.
