Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd has launched its high-speed wireless broadband service in Penang, eight months after its debut in the Klang Valley in August last year.
"Today''s P1 WIMAX launch in Penang marks a very important milestone for the ambitious operator in pursuit of its mission to provide ubiquitous high quality broadband for all," said Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng.
The network expansion is in line with the company''s pursuit to hit a targeted 35 percent nationwide population coverage within this year.
The first phase of the Worldwide Inter-Operability for Microwave Access (WiMAX)Penang project started in October last year, with the deployment of P1 base stations to cover areas around Georgetown and parts of Seberang Prai.
In January this year, the company successfully conducted a test run, where a large number of Penang residents previewed the performance of wireless broadband via WiMAX technology.
"Our openness and diligence in putting to action what the consumer wants is the key to our success for now and in the future.
"Today, P1 is simply giving Penang what the people want, that is, a reliable high quality, high-performance, affordable broadband service," said P1 chief executive officer Michael Lai.
The company aims to have over 50 sites up and running in Penang in the coming months to ensure that the P1 WIMAX service availability is well up to the task of meeting the expected demand.
P1 WIMAX represents the first large scale commercial deployment of mobile WiMAX in Southeast Asia, and the first large-scale deployment of an 802.16e 2.3GHz WiMAX network outside Korea.
