KUALA LUMPUR: Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) will announce the details of its plan to enter the broadband services market in January.

President and chief executive officer Datuk Seri Ir Azman Mohd said TNB was in the process of communicating its plan to the relevant ministries.

“I think you will hear more about this (the project details) in January,” he told reporters after the launch of the TNB Integrity Day 2018 here today.
