MEDIA RELEASE
For immediate release
Kuala Lumpur, 9 April 2013

Find out how fast your iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad 4 can go with the nation’s largest 4G LTE network! Maxis Berhad (Maxis), Malaysia's only integrated communications service provider, today announced that customers using the iPhone 5, as well as iPad mini and iPad 4 can now enjoy super-fast internet through its 4G LTE network. These three Apple devices join the Nokia Lumia 920 and HTC One XL which were the first two smartphones to be activated on Maxis' 4G LTE network.

Suren J Amarasekera, Maxis' Joint Chief Operating Officer, said, "In 2009 Maxis was the pioneer to introduce the iPhone to Malaysia and now Maxis is proud to announce that Maxis users of Apple iPhone 5, fourth generation iPad with Retina display and iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular model will be the first in Malaysia to experience superior services on Maxis' high speed 4G LTE network. We firmly believe that our range of plans offer compelling value to our Apple users and will give them the opportunity to get the most out of the amazing features of these Apple devices.  We are certain that our Apple customers will be pleasantly surprised with the superb experience with Maxis' 4G LTE network."

Mark Dioguardi, Maxis' Joint Chief Operating Officer, added, "Since the launch of our high-speed 4G LTE network on 1 January 2013, we have worked hard to expand our footprint. At present, we have successfully quadrupled our 4G LTE coverage, allowing approximately 100,000 customers to enjoy super fast internet from Maxis. With today’s announcement, even more customers will be able to enjoy incredible internet speeds from Maxis.

"We are extremely encouraged by the take up of our 4G LTE service and in response will expand 4G LTE coverage to more areas in the Klang Valley as well as Penang and Johor Bahru by the third quarter of 2013."

With 4G LTE, customers using iPhone 5, iPad mini and iPad 4 can now experience download speeds five to ten times faster than 3G, enabling them to upload pictures and video ten times faster and enjoying significantly quicker response time when they use their favourite applications like Facebook and YouTube. Customers can expect their Facebook news feeds to download up to four times faster, compared to HSPA+. Backing up or uploading of big files - for example more than 50MB - to Dropbox will be up to seven times faster.

Following the 4G LTE activation for iPhone 5, iPhone 5 customers on Maxis iValue plans as well as data plans of 1G and above will receive an SMS requesting them to update the settings on their respective devices. Once customers do so, they will automatically be able to experience 4G LTE speeds in Maxis 4G LTE coverage areas. In areas where 4G LTE services are not available, the device will automatically and seamlessly fall back onto Maxis' 3G network.

Maxis now has 4G LTE service available in the following areas:
Bangsar, Mont Kiara, Desa Park, Damansara Heights
Cyberjaya

Kota Damansara, Sunway Damansara
