Celcom and Digi announced the signing of the 5G access agreement with Digital Nasional Berhad, shortly after Telekom Malaysia and U Mobile. The agreement will allow both telcos to offer commercial 5G services to their consumers very soon.
Similar to Telekom Malaysia, both Celcom and Digi will access DNB’s 5G network for a period of 10 years. Under the agreement, there will be no charges incurred until 31st December 2022.
According to Celcom, the DNB’s Reference Access Offer published on the DNB website sets out the salient terms and conditions subject to which network facilities and network services will be provided by DNB to Celcom. The RAO may be updated or replaced from time to time in which case the Agreement will be governed by and incorporate the terms and conditions of the RAO published on the DNB Website.
