REDtone now the WIDEST and of of the LARGEST WiMAX operator

REDtone has formed a partnership with eB Technologies that enables REDtone to use the 2.5Ghz and 3.5Ghz in Peninsular Malaysia.

On March 17 last month, REDtone was awarded a 2.5Ghz spectrum to operate WiMAX in Sabah and Sarawak. With this partnership, it makes REDtone the ONLY WiMAX operator with access to all 3 WiMAX spectrum that enables it to cover entire country.

REDtone Group chief executive officer Zainal Amanshah in a press statement says “We will offer high-speed broadband of up to 100 mbps (megabit per second) for consumers and corporate Internet service of up to 155 mbps for corporate customers and small- and- medium enterprises over a wider geographical area by combining both REDtone’s and eB’s base stations and network capabilities”.

We will be able to offer both fixed and mobile WiMax services in the near future. It opens the door for more possibilities including content and the much talked about triple play services,” he added.

The partnership also enables immediate access to 100 WiMAX based station in the Klang Valley, Penang and Johor Bahru that belongs to eB Technologies, to deploy wireless broadband services.

Lets hope that the Malaysians would be able to have more choices and better service of broadband in this country.
