KUALA LUMPUR, June 10 (Bernama) -- Packet One Networks (M) Sdn Bhd (P1) became the first 4G WiMAX service provider in Malaysia and Southeast Asia to join the Global TD-LTE Initiative (GTI) to champion the TD-LTE technology.

The GTI is a virtual open platform to advocate cooperation among global operators to promote the TD-LTE ecosystem.

In a statement today, P1\'\'s chief executive officer Michael Lai said even though WiMAX is still the most matured 4G technology available today, it is good to prepare for the future and LTE is definitely the answer to the growing demand for mobile broadband services.

"LTE is the next wave of 4G technology that is potentially capable of delivering dizzying wireless speeds up to one gigabits per second. "P1 wants to offer its subscribers the best of both worlds by transitioning to a dual 4G WiMAX/TD-LTE platform and maximise its RM1 billion nationwide WiMAX network investment," Lai said. -- BERNAMA
