LTE/4G license has been issued in Malaysia

It appears that the SKMM has issued the LTE/4G licenses(2.6GHz spectrum) which can only be used which can be used after Jan 1, 2013.

Some of these mobile/fixed operators could have received the licenses- Celcom Axiata Bhd, DiGi.Com Bhd, Maxis Communications Bhd, U Mobile Sdn Bhd, Asiaspace Sdn Bhd, Packet One Network (M) Sdn Bhd, REDtone International Bhd, YTL Communications Sdn Bhd, and a new entrant(a company said to be linked to Tan Sri Syed Mohkhar Al-Bukhary).

“The regulator is allocating 20Mhz bandwidth, TDD or FDD for each player but the location of the block will be decided later.”

“It is learnt that the letters were faxed to the players on Friday, a day after StarBiz reported that nine players may receive 20Mhz each of 2.5/2.6Ghz spectrum that is meant for 4G.”
