PETALING JAYA, 4 May 2023 鈥 CelcomDigi Berhad (CelcomDigi) welcomes the Government鈥檚 decision to implement 5G under two networks once 80% 5G coverage of populated areas (CoPA) has been achieved by Digital Nasional Berhad (鈥淒NB鈥).

Following the Government鈥檚 announcement on May 3, 2023, CelcomDigi also disclosed to shareholders via a statement to Bursa Malaysia that both Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (鈥淒igitel鈥) and Celcom Mobile Sdn Bhd, (鈥淐elcom Mobile鈥) have terminated previous respective Share Subscription Agreements (鈥淪SA鈥) signed in November 2022 with DNB, effective 3 May 2023.
