Pushback on DNB-led 5G reflects impending change in industry status quo

Pushback on DNB-led 5G reflects impending change in industry status quo. [Newspaper] (2021)


LAST Wednesday (Nov 10), Reuters ran a report headlined “No takers for Malaysia’s 5G plan as major telcos balk over pricing, transparency”, claiming that none of Malaysia’s major mobile operators had agreed to use the government-owned 5G network even though initial 5G rollout had been planned for December.

As a matter of fact, Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) had demonstrated to the media that very day that its 5G Multi-Operator Core Network (MOCN) had successfully integrated with five mobile operators.

Calling the article inaccurate the following day, DNB said negotiations on pricing would begin only after an applicable reference access offer (RAO) document, which forms the basis for DNB’s entering into commercial agreements with licensees seeking access to the 5G network, is finalised. DNB expects the RAO to be finalised by month-end, with approval from the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
