KUALA LUMPUR: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) has issued a revised invitation for licensees to instal network facilities and deploy network service.
In a statement issued on Friday, MCMC said these facilities and service would be for the public cellular services at the universal service targets under the National Digital Infrastructure Plan (Jendela) phase one initiative.
This invitation replaces the original Invitation issued on Nov 20 last year.
“The revised invitation encompasses a scope of work that is divided into two parts. Part one covers the installation of passive infrastructure, while part two covers the installation of active infrastructure and the deployment of public cellular services. Interested licensees can opt to participate in either part one or two, ” it said.
MCMC said the revised scope of work and eligibility criteria is meant to expedite implementation as it will allow more licensees to participate in this exercise, which covers 1,661 locations in 106 clusters nationwide.
The closing date for registration of interest is on Feb 2 and the submission of draft universal service plans by interested and eligible licensees are on March 31.
It was also reported on Friday Telekom Malaysia has exceeded the target set under Jendela for the deployment of fixed broadband infrastructure by achieving 124% of its overall committed premises for the year 2020.
Group chief executive officer Imri Mokhtar was quoted saying TM had managed to deploy fixed broadband infrastructure to 272,185 premises nationwide as of Dec 9,2020.
