Maxis reiterates commitment to sign 5G access agreement with DNB


Maxis CEO Goh Seow Eng

KUALA LUMPUR: Maxis Bhd reiterates its commitment to sign the 5G access agreement with Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) to provide 5G services to their customers.

However, chief executive officer Goh Seow Eng did not disclose when the company will officially sign the agreement with DNB.

"It is actually not a matter of Maxis not signing the agreement, we will sign the access agreement but the network coverage is still an issue and this is something that I want to highlight very much.

"It is something that we still need to work together and this is where all network (providers) come in,” he said during a panel discussion titled "Rethinking the 5G model-Building Tomorrow’s Infrastructure, Today” at Invest Malaysia Series 2 conference here today.

Earlier during the keynote speech, Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil announced that Maxis has agreed to sign the access agreement for 5G deployment.

"I can now inform you that InsyAllah (Maxis) is signing (the access agreement) soon,” he said.

To date, Maxis is the only major mobile network operator (MNO) which has yet to execute the access agreement for 5G service with DNB.

Malaysia’s 5G network has reached 62.1 per cent coverage of populated areas (CoPA) as of May 31, 2023, involving 5,058 sites. - Bernama
