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% integration by year-end.
CelcomDigi chief executive officer Datuk Idham Nawawi said the network integration and modernisation has been achieved at more than 4,400 sites as at end-October 2023, which is equivalent to 80% of the company’s plan.
“We might integrate more this year than what we planned earlier, which is 30% will be done this year, while 40% next year and the remaining 30% in the third year,” he said after launching the CelcomDigi all-in fifth generation (5G) and 4G postpaid plans yesterday.
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 reliable 4G connectivity and unleash the power of 5G for all connectivity needs. — Bernama
