LOOK Maxis Malaysia challenges DiGi and Celcom to a 4G face-off

How often have you claimed that your service is the absolute best? (C’mon, we’ve all done it)

Maxis Malaysia picked up on this latest trend and has challenged chief engineers from both Celcom and DiGi to join Maxis CTO Morten Baangsgard at an open forum on 4G on 23 November 2015.

The telco said:

“We’ve noticed that the three leading telcos in Malaysia have all claimed to have the ‘widest’, ‘fastest’ and ‘best’ 4G network. Although we’d like to say ‘great minds think alike’, it’s clear that all three of us can’t all be right. And if this continues, Malaysians won’t know who to trust. And that’s not good for any of us.”

Maxis Malaysia went on to say that when any telco claims to be ‘No. 1 for 4G’, it should be backed up with tangible, measurable and truthful results. This is why Maxis has decided to reveal its 4G definitions and performance stats.

The telco added that Malaysians who want the best Internet experience should have a fair basis for choosing and hence has been specific about our performance.

A+M has reached out to Celcom and Digi for comments.

“We’re inviting the media and the public to test our Maxis 4G for themselves. And we’d like to encourage Celcom and DiGi to do the same as well. When you're on a 4G network, you should expect buffer-free video streaming, quicker page loading, and consistently high speeds both indoors and outdoors. We have defined in technical terms exactly what Maxis aims for in terms of a great 4G experience. We are doing that because Malaysians who want the best 4G Internet experience should have a fair basis for choosing,” Morten Bangsgaard, Maxis CTO said.

Your move, Celcom and Digi!
