MCMC 2016 Network Performance Results: Maxis has fastest download speeds while DiGi offers lowest lagLast Updated: Feb 03, 2017
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) recently measured the network performance and compliance to the Mandatory Standard for Quality of Service (QoS) of local broadband providers from January to November 2016. The report revealed that Maxis offers the fastest download speed throughout Malaysia while DiGi offers the least amount of lag.
Maxis recorded the fastest average download speeds in 5 out of 6 regions, though, in the central region(which covers Klang Valley and Negeri Sembilan), it was Celcom that has the fastest download speed. DiGi offers the quickest response time(Low average network latency), which basically meant "less lag" which is important in online gaming, streaming and teleconferencing.

Not so many big official announcements this week so the rumours were focused on a bit more with the OnePlus 3 not using 100% of its 6GB RAM and its CEO's subsequent response. Other standout rumours include that we may see the honor 8 and honor X3 next month, while a more powerful Xiaomi Mi 5s could be coming soon too. A new U Mobile Hero P98 postpaid plan also made an appearance, reportedly offering 30GB of data at RM98 a month.

While Maxis, Celcom and other Telcos are currently offering higher-speed 4G LTE networks, YES 4G or YTL Communications has been rather quiet. This all changed when YES 4G announced that they would be coming out with their 4G LTE network in 2014. No specific Malaysia release dates were mentioned but the announcement is more or less official having come from Dato' Yeoh Seok Hong, Executive Director of YTL Communications. One interesting fact for the YES 4G LTE service is that rather than fall back onto 3G mobile connectivity, the YES 4G LTE will go to WiMAX should there be a problem connecting to the LTE network. No news on pricing but we should find out about this soon enough so stay tuned and we'll keep you posted.
