Digi has more than doubled its LTE coverage in the Klang Valley. As of April it claims its coverage stands at 79%, a big increase from 14% last year. 

It also offers LTE in Penang, Johor Bahru, Kuantan, Kota Kinabalu, Tawau, Labuan, Kuching, Miri, Bintulu, Kampar, Langkawi and Port Dickson. 

Its nationwide coverage is at 33% and the company is hoping to bring it up to 45% by the year end.

Digi said it will be overlaying the 1,800MHz and 2,600MHz spectrum for LTE in the next few quarters, which will not only increase coverage but also boost capacity, and improve both indoor and outdoor Internet experience in the Klang Valley.

Digi chief executive officer Albern Murty said that the telco’s effort in widening its LTE services is in line with the Government’s call to provide greater Internet access and improve coverage quality.

“In the last three years, we have invested RM2.3bil in capital expenditure to modernise and strengthen our network,” said Albern.

This year it has committed RM900mil to fast track its LTE rollout.

As part of its 20th anniversary celebrations, it has a number of new offers and freebies, including up to RM20 discount for 12 months for its Smartplan 78, 108 and 148.
