Negotiations between all parties that play a part in the country’s 5G network rollout are still ongoing, says Communications and Multimedia Minister (MenKOMM) Tan Sri Annuar Musa.
He added that local mobile network operators (MNO) and Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) have until 30 June to finalise their service agreement.
He also said that any telco that has yet to take up its equity stake and sign the agreement, will be left out and the government will move on with its plans to ensure the launch of the network happens.
Experts had previously predicted this delay. You can read all about it here:
As of this writing, only two MNOs have signed the service agreement with DNB, namely TM and YTL.
According to Annuar, these companies will launch 5G services in three Phase 1A areas (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya, and Cyberjaya) after Eid.
