StarHub and U Mobile Race Ahead with 5G Development 

StarHub and U Mobile have both made substantial headway with 5G technology. StarHub became the first in Singapore to offer its customers the 5G experience with the launch of new mobile plans. The plans allow customers an early glimpse into the ultra-fast speed and ultra-low-latency upgrades that come with the new technology. StarHub also commenced Southeast Asia’s first live 5G non-standalone (NSA) network trial across Singapore together with Nokia, allowing customers to enjoy the early benefits of 5G, including enhanced coverage and performance for better user experience. Over in Malaysia, U Mobile launched its Fast Forward with 5G consumer live trial at Berjaya Times Square for customers to experience a 5G future. While 5G has yet to be commercially rolled out in Malaysia, U Mobile has provisioned all its SIMs to be 5G-ready so that customers can get a taste of 5G in the mall. 


Most recently, StarHub and U Mobile successfully completed a multi-party roaming video conference call over 5G standalone technology, propelling them closer to offering customers crystal-clear and lag-free communication and entertainment experiences.
