Digi is collaborating with TNB to deliver wired broadband to more homes outside the Klang Valley.
Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) announced the agreement with Allo Technology Sdn Bhd (Allo) to expand its footprint to approximately 45,000 homepasses, in selected areas in Melaka, Perak, and Cyberjaya.
Homepasses refer to the potential number of premises which an Internet service provider has the capability of connecting to its network in a service area, without requiring further trunk or feeder line construction.
In a press statement, the telco said it would leverage Allo’s Layer 2 High Speed Broadband (HSBB) Network Service solutions.
This rollout will bring the total homepasses of Allo – a wholly owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) – to 155,000 by the second quarter of 2021, as part of its expansion drive to other states.
Digi chief marketing officer Praveen Rajan said partening with Allo allowed the telco to speed up the delivery of home broadband services, especially now, when there was a critical demand for reliable connectivity for remote work and educational needs.
Allo chief executive officer Rodzi Ahmad said they had been proactively working with partners to support expansions in providing connectivity to Malaysians from all geographical backgrounds.
This collaboration was a continuation of the partnership that started with a pilot project providing unlimited home broadband services to 1,100 residents and businesses in Melaka, early last year.
