Maxis 4G LTE Delivers Best HD Video Experience On YouTube Across All 14 States


Maxis has emerged as the telco that consistently delivers smooth high-definition (HD) video streaming, according to YouTube’s Video Checkup tool. This web tool, which was officially launched last week in Malaysia only, provides YouTube users with a score of different telcos in a specific area based on YouTube playback quality.

The results for Maxis’ network performance showed clear leadership across the country:

 


“Malaysians love the Internet and we believe in delighting our customers with a great mobile Internet experience. This is why Maxis continues to make significant investments to strengthen our network infrastructure so customers can enjoy a differentiated 4G experience on their phones, These results show that HD video streaming is better with Maxis No. 1 4G,” said Morten Bangsgaard, Maxis’ Chief Technology Officer.

He added, “We are glad that such a diagnostic tool has been launched. It provides transparency of different network experiences, and gives users a clear and reliable measure that comes from the aggregation of YouTube data that is gathered from actual user experience.”

The top ratings for buffer speeds on Maxis 4G LTE across 14 states is unequivocal:

According to YouTube, a rating of 4.0 stars is the highest possible rating at this time, as 4.5+ stars are reserved for future technology that support higher bandwidth video such as Virtual Reality (VR) and 360-degree videos.

The increased use of video has driven a growing demand for Maxis mobile data, which doubled from 1.5GB last year to 4.0GB per month in 2016. There was also a tremendous growth in the penetration of 4G-enabled devices, which increased to 43% of total Maxis subscribers in 2016. Maxis 4G traffic grew 7 times in 2016 mainly used for good quality video streaming.

According to a statement released by Google, “Today, most viewers of YouTube in Malaysia primarily watch videos from their smartphones, with two thirds of Malaysia’s YouTube watchtime coming from mobile devices. Much of this on-the-go watchtime comes from consumers using mobile data plans. The growth momentum for this trend looks strong, as mobile watchtime in Malaysia grew by 84% over this past year.”

How to use the Video Checkup tool:

Go to www.youtube.com/videocheckup.
You’ll find a simple site with three tabs, along with the following:
COMPARE: Enter your desired location. A list of operators in your area will appear, with their scores out of 5 stars. The scores represent the video streaming quality you can expect when you watch YouTube using a specific mobile provider in a specific area.
EXPLORE: A heat map of YouTube’s playback experience on operator networks in your area.
LEARN: Explains the star ratings and terminology in more detail.

Once again, Maxis’ industry-leading 4G LTE network has been proven to provide the best coverage and speed for a fantastic Internet experience. Maxis has also been voted Best Telco Provider & LTE Network by Lowyat.NET Community Choice Awards Malaysia for two consecutive years, and Best Network in 2016 by MCMC Wireless & Wired Broadband Services.
