iBurst now available in Malaysia

iBurst is now commercially available in Malaysia after local firm iZZinet recently switched on high-speed wireless broadband in Kuala Lumpur and some surrounding areas, it said.

The company plans to roll-out its products and services across Malaysia by the end of this year. iBurst is currently available in Ghana, South Africa, Australia, Kenya, Canada, Lebanon, Norway and Azerbaijan.

"Malaysia is a strategically important country for South Africa and iBurst SA has already concluded an international roaming deal with our counterpart in Malaysia although it will be some time before roaming is available commercially," said Thami Mtshali, CEO of iBurst SA.

iZZinet Sdn Bhd (formerly known as MoBif Wireless Broadband Sdn Bhd) was incorporated in Malaysia in 2006 as a private limited company to introduce and provide a new alternative mobile wireless broadband service to the Malaysia public, employing the "Burst" technology which has been proven successful in other countries.
