Malaysia's 5G network coverage is less than 4% away from target, says Fahmi

PUTRAJAYA: The 5G network coverage in populated areas in Malaysia has reached 76.1% as of Nov 30, says Fahmi Fadzil.

The Communications and Digital Minister said this meant that there was less than 4% left for the country to reach the target of 80% 5G network coverage by the end of the year.

He said that once Malaysia reached the target, the government would decide on establishing a second 5G network.

"On Dec 1, we signed the Share Subscription Agreement (SSA), so the five telecommunication companies will each inject RM233mil into Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB).

"This means that the amount (invested) will help in terms of DNB's operations as well as the implementation of the 5G network," he told reporters after his ministry’s monthly assembly on Wednesday (Dec 6). – Bernama
