With its aggressive network rollout over the past year, a brand new U Mobile 4G LTE network is now available in Perak, a state in the northwest of Peninsular Malaysia.
Compared to 2018, U Mobile said it increased the number of base station sites to 186% in 2019, offering wider coverage and faster speeds in the state.
To experience the brand new U Mobile 4G LTE network, the MalaysianWireless team visited Perak for a speedtest a few weeks ago.
Our speedtest location mainly covered the Ipoh city. We also tested in Batu Gajah, Chemor, Kuala Kangsar, Taiping, Sitiawan, Kampar, Malim Nawar, Teluk Intan, Tapah, Bidor, Sungkai, and more.
Based on the 51 location tested, we could conclude that U Mobile has a strong mobile network coverage in Perak covering a large number of areas, even up to the “Kampungs”.
