CelcomDigi plans to speed up network integration between telcos


PETALING JAYA: CelcomDigi Bhd is considering to speed up the merger integration efforts between Celcom and Digi networks as the company is on track to achieve 30 per cent integration by year-end.

CelcomDigi chief executive officer Datuk Idham Nawawi said the network integration and modernisation has achieved at more than 4,400 sites as at end-October 2023, which is equivalent to 80 per cent of the company’s plan.

"We might integrate more this year than what we planned earlier, which is 30 per cent will be done this year, while 40 per cent next year and the remaining 30 per cent in the third year,” he said after officiating at the launch of CelcomDigi all-in fifth generation (5G) and 4G postpaid plans today.

However, when asked whether CelcomDigi would set a new target, he said the numbers would not be much different from the initial targets.

Previously, CelcomDigi said the merger would see a thorough integration of the network and is expected to be completed within the next 24 to 30 months by consolidating the respective 12,000 sites from Celcom and Digi into a single network of 18,000 sites.

Meanwhile, CelcomDigi has introduced its new CelcomDigi Postpaid 5G plans, inviting Malaysians to enjoy greater 5G-enabled connectivity experiences on Malaysia’s widest and fastest network.

Idham said the new plans underscore CelcomDigi’s commitment to be a brand and network that all Malaysians can trust and rely on to provide them with a reliable 4G connectivity and unleash the power of 5G for all connectivity needs.

CelcomDigi chief consumer business officer Praveen Rajan said the new range of all-in postpaid plans with 5G and 4G Internet access comes complete with additional attractive extra benefits designed to meet customers’ different connectivity needs.

"We unveiled six CelcomDigi Postpaid 5G plans that come with great Internet quotas and 5G speeds.

"All these 5G plans will give customers the access to both 5G and 4G Internet anytime anywhere,” he added. - Bernama
