Yoodo, a Malaysian mobile virtual network operator (MVNO), has announced that the brand will be discontinued on Aug 29 this year.

“More information about your service will be shared with you on 17 June 2024,” the company writes in a post on its website.

The MVNO states that customers will not face any interruptions on any of the services it offers, with the option to port out to “another operator of your choice”.

“You will continue to enjoy existing services (Data, Voice and SMS) on the CelcomDigi network, and product and support channels from CelcomDigi without any interruptions until further notice,” it writes.

Yoodo adds that as of now bill payments will also remain unchanged.

The MVNO says this is part of a commitment made earlier to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) for the merger between Celcom and Digi.

It was previously reported by The Star in October 2023 that Celcom, which had originally owned Yoodo, would be required to divest from the digital telco within 18 months following the merger.
