DNB to offer 5G services to telcos for free during initial roll-out. [Newspaper] (2021)


KUALA LUMPUR (Dec 6): Malaysian state agency Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) on Monday said it will offer wholesale fifth-generation (5G) services to mobile carriers at no cost during an initial roll-out set to begin next week, amid concerns from operators over its pricing plans.

DNB, a government agency tasked with building and managing the entire 5G telecommunications network, had yet to sign long-term deals with any mobile operator, with telcos raising concerns over transparency and pricing issues, Reuters reported last month.

Telekom Malaysia Bhd on Saturday became the first operator to sign up for 5G trials with DNB.

DNB in a statement said 5G services will be commercially available from Dec 15 in three central areas, including parts of Kuala Lumpur.
