Govt leans towards dual 5G network

MNOs will get option to acquire direct stakes in DNB

PETALING JAYA: The government is likely to green-light the implementation of the 5G dual wholesale network (DWN) model but the mobile network operators (MNOs) would be first offered the option to acquire direct stakes in 5G network by Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB).

Ahead of the Cabinet’s final decision on Friday, sources told StarBiz that decision makers within the government are “leaning more” towards the DWN model as compared to the single wholesale network model where MNOs gain 5G access from a single provider for a wholesale price.
