Fahmi Fadzil: Malaysia to assess current 5G deployment, concerned with delay and cost to rollout
2 months ago
During his first press conference as Malaysia’s new Communications and Digital Minister, Fahmi Fadzil said the government will assess the current state of the 5G implementation through a single wholesale network. This comes after Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim mentioned that the current deployment plans through state-owned Digital Nasional Berhad will be reviewed.
According to Fahmi, both his ministry and the Ministry of Finance will look into the technical assessment and review several aspects while ensuring that the current 5G rollout will not be interrupted, but accelerated. He said other countries have already deployed 5G extensively and some have even started discussions on 6G. He said the government is aware of several issues and that’s why the Prime Minister has ordered for this matter to be looked into.
