The Star Online, 15th September 2008
The company recently announced an introductory service that is focused on providing high-speed enterprise data and wireless Internet broadband access to a selected number of corporate customers.
According to Y-Max, subscribers can currently enjoy speeds of up to 2Mbps (megabits per second) and are charged between RM80 and RM160 a month.
“The service is now being deployed at two five-star hotels and a cafe in Bukit Bintang,” a company spokesman said. YTL-e said the service is being offered to a limited number of corporations in order to get valuable feedback that will help it improve its full-scale WiMAX service rollout.
The spokesman added that Y-Max chose to deploy its services in the Bukit Bintang area because its headquarters is located there.
“It is also a high-profile business area and fits in very well with our plan to offer our WiMAX Enterprise Connectivity service to businesses,” he said.
YTL-e plans to roll-out a WiMAX broadband service for home users once it has established an extensive WiMAX network coverage area.
However, the company could not confirm when this will be ready.
