While Malaysian companies and government organizations do present at Mobile World Congress, they don’t usually make it to the headlines though. However, this particular announcement jointly made by Tune Talk and SWAG (that is really the name of the company) at the event should be a matter of interest to consumers in Malaysia.
Through the announcement, Tune Talk has revealed a mobile Wi-Fi device developed by SWAG (which stands for for Super Wi-Fi Anywhere You Go) called Tune Talk 8G which is designed to deliver exceptional Internet while on the go. While the actual speed has yet to be finalized but SWAG claimed that its solution able to deliver stable speed of up to 160 Mbps while being stationary and on the move according to tests by Tune Talk.
Naturally, the speed achieved by SWAG’s solution goes down during peak period but it is apparently still good enough to deliver average speeds of 66 Mbps which is still blazingly fast. SWAG claimed that it managed achieved such level of performances by merging several network together which can be seen clearly on this clip below:
We are not sure what Tune Talk meant by 8G though, considering 5G speed is already much faster at around 3.5 to 10 Gbps. Furthermore, SWAG’s solution is not exactly far off than LTE-A offerings by several local telcos that are able to achieve maximum speed of 150 Mbps. Nevertheless, this is indeed an interesting development achieved by both companies and we are looking forward to see it being rolled out to consumers by the third quarter of 2016.
