The RM700mil 5G award clincher

“The design, build and maintenance of the nation’s 5G network managed by Ericsson is estimated to cost RM11bil, around RM700mil lower than the total cost of ownership of the next closest bid, ’’ DNB said in the statement.

PETALING JAYA: The winning bid by Ericsson Malaysia for the 5G network rollout at RM11bil was RM700mil cheaper than the next lowest bid, said Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) in a statement yesterday.

In addressing concerns raised over the selection and award process, DNB said the tender selection process – which had begun in March this year – was “rigorous and competitive’’ and that was why it awarded the RM11bil contract to Ericsson to design and build the nation’s 5G network.
