Notes to the Editor:

  1.     Long Term Evolution (LTE), also known as 4G LTE, is a standard for wireless communication of high-speed data. LTE is the next generation network beyond 3G, with higher capacity and wireless speeds to meet the demands for high speed connectivity, and capacity to upload and download large data files. LTE is the fastest, and more importantly, the only global 4G standard ensuring that a rich ecosystem of broadband, mobile and tablet devices are available.
  2.     Maxis' 4G LTE service offers download speeds 5-10 times faster than 3G and works seamlessly with its existing 3G networks. The Company's 3G / HSPA+ network is already providing speeds of up to 21 Mbps and 81% population coverage from 5,200 sites, whereas its HSPA+ dual carrier network has over 3,500 sites covering most major towns nationwide and supports speeds of up to 42 Mbps. This means customers can continue to enjoy their 4G LTE devices even when they are outside the 4G LTE area. 
  3.     Maxis One Club is an exclusive membership programme that offers priority customer service, special rewards and affinity programmes. Customers who have been with Maxis (postpaid) for more than a year with a minimum monthly commitment of RM150 and above are automatically upgraded to MOC member status.
