Digi expands broadband coverage by collaborating with TIME
Digi and TIME announced a collaboration to provide more connectivity options across the country. This announcement also signifies both companies’ continuous commitment to support the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) that aims to provide Malaysians with better access to affordable and high-quality connectivity.
Under this deal, Digi will leverage on TIME’s fibre broadband infrastructure to extend its Digi Home Broadband offerings to more Malaysians especially those residing in residential condominiums and apartments.
“This collaboration with TIME allows us to expand our connectivity footprint for more Malaysians to enjoy a seamless and consistent internet experience in and outside the home with Digi,” said Loh Keh Jiat, Chief Marketing Officer of Digi. “Being customer obsessed, we are steadfast in our ambition to deliver the best value, with a wide-range of service offerings to suit our customers’ needs wherever they may be.”
“We stand behind the quality fibre broadband infrastructure that TIME has built. Access to TIME’s infrastructure is open to Internet service providers (ISPs) seeking to extend high speed broadband (HSBB) connectivity to more Malaysians across the country,” said Lee Guan Hong, Executive Director of TIME. “In tandem with improving overall HSBB connectivity and contributing to the liberalisation of infrastructure access, we will also continue our efforts to expand our coverage footprint across Malaysia.”
In September 2019, Digi Home Fibre was launched in Sabah, its first commercial home broadband service in the country following its pilot rollouts earlier this year in selected areas within Klang Valley and Melaka. Residents in these areas can now enjoy high speed internet for all their entertainment and social needs at an affordable price.
This collaboration is also in sync with the Government’s call for more cooperation within the ecosystem, which will ultimately benefit both consumers and businesses in the country. By leveraging on existing infrastructure, a collaboration such as this allows Digi to focus on rolling out services and improving access and customer experiences in the targeted areas faster and in a more cost-efficient manner.
