U Mobile Getting Ready for Further 3G and 4G LTE expansion
U Mobile is meeting customer demands with its new plan to expand its network in Malaysia. The expansion plan includes a handful of new states that have been identified as key cities and extremely strategic areas. The list includes Wilayah Persekutuan, Selangor, Seremban, Port Dickson, Nilai, Ipoh, Lumut, Penang, Johor Bharu, Muar, Kluang, Segamat, and Batu Pahat.
The expansion plan will be completed by the end of next year and will cost an astounding the RM 1.5 billion. The target is to expand to 2000 new sites with half being 3G sites and the other half, LTE.
With this plan in place, U Mobile is hoping to increase market share to 10% and revenue to 50%. Only when the plan in Peninsular Malaysia is completed, the telco company will strengthen its service in Sabah and Sarawak. So, don’t plan on hearing any plans for the East till the West is done!
