CelcomDigi speeds up network merger
The integration of Celcom and Digi networks is expected to consolidate their combined 12,000 sites into a single network of 18,000 sites, says CelcomDigi.
PETALING JAYA: CelcomDigi Bhd has considered speeding up the merger integration efforts between Celcom and Digi networks as the company is on track to achieve 30% integration by year-end.

CelcomDigi CEO Idham Nawawi said the network integration and modernisation of over 4,400 sites had been achieved as of end-Oct 2023, which is equivalent to 80% of the company’s plan.

“We might integrate more this year than what we planned earlier, which is 30% will be done this year, while another 40% next year and the remaining 30% in the third year,” he said after officiating at the launch of CelcomDigi all-in fifth generation (5G) and fourth generation (4G) postpaid plans today.

However, when asked whether CelcomDigi would set a new target, he said the numbers would not be much different from the initial targets.

Previously, CelcomDigi said that the merger would see a thorough integration of the network and is expected to be completed within the next 24 to 30 months by consolidating the respective 12,000 sites from Celcom and Digi into a single network of 18,000 sites.

Meanwhile, CelcomDigi has introduced its new CelcomDigi Postpaid 5G plans, inviting Malaysians to enjoy greater 5G-enabled connectivity experiences on Malaysia’s widest and fastest network.

Idham said the new plans underscore CelcomDigi’s commitment to be a brand and network that all Malaysians can trust and rely on to provide them with reliable 4G connectivity and unleash the power of 5G for all connectivity needs.

CelcomDigi chief consumer business officer Praveen Rajan said the new range of all-in postpaid plans with 5G and 4G Internet access comes complete with additional attractive benefits designed to meet customers’ different connectivity needs.

“We unveiled six CelcomDigi Postpaid 5G plans that come with great Internet quotas and 5G speeds.

“All these 5G plans will give customers access to both 5G and 4G Internet anytime anywhere,” he added.
