The operator said that the cell site, which is located in Berjaya Times Square in the capital Kuala Lumpur is ready to offer the increased download speeds, and it aims to expand the rollout of the technology to other areas within the Klang Valley over the next few weeks. Commenting on the development, Dr Kaizad Heerjee, U Mobile’s CEO, noted: ‘With the rollout of this new technology, U Mobile will be the first service provider in Malaysia to begin the deployment of a commercial mobile broadband service capable of delivering speeds of up to 42 Mbps using HSPA+.
