Lee, CEO of YTL Communications. “And we’re excited to continue the lead as Malaysia’s 4G champion with the launch of the largest and most advanced 4G LTE network that enables Malaysians to enjoy blazingly fast Mobile Internet and High Definition voice using VoLTE – a Malaysia first. Samsung has been supporting our quest every step of the way and today marks yet another important milestone in our strategic partnership.”
