MAHB and Maxis Team Up to Transform KLIA as Malaysia's First 5G Smart Airport
Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) has recently announced a partnership with Maxis to transform the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) into a 5G hub centre.
According to MAHB, Maxis will be focusing on the Wi-Fi and 5G-related network services and solutions at both KLIA and KLIA2 terminals.
