UPDATE: TM has officially launched TMgo, a new 4G service which now covers Kedah and Melaka.
TMgo, Telekom Malaysia’s own LTE-based 4G service will be launched tomorrow, 8th August. The event is set to take place at Alor Setar, Kedah which is likely to be one of their initial coverage areas. The launch is the first phase of TM’s wireless offering and is part of the company’s CDMA technology refresh
Earlier on, its TMgo product page had appeared abruptly which revealed its price plans and offering. Based on what we’ve seen earlier, TMgo would be available in both USB Dongle and wireless MiFi hotspot offering.
While the TM-P1 partnership is still pending approval, TMgo will be operating at a lower 850MHz frequency instead of the usual 1800MHz/2600MHz bands used by the mainstream 4G operators.
In terms of speed, its initial FAQ has mentioned download speeds up to 20Mbps and had listed 2 locations – Pendang, Kedah and Melaka Tengah, Melaka as its initial service areas.
The full TMgo plans and offering will be revealed tomorrow. We’ll see how it will fare against other wireless offerings in the market.
