The recently acquired 3G spectrum will enhance DiGis mobile network capacity and efficiency, and provide a platform for ongoing innovation and development of enhanced mobile and broadband services.
Broadband service to DiGi customers
“We have been very successful without 3G in the past; however, we believe the timing is right for DiGi to start the rollout of broadband services to our customers. We are excited that this Spectrum will enable us to contribute actively to the extensive deployment of broadband infrastructure and services in keeping with the aspirations of the National Broadband Plan,” said Johan Dennelind, CEO at DiGi.
TdC and DiGi 3G Spectrum Alliance
The transfer of the 3G Spectrum from TIME dotcom Berhad (TdC) to DiGi.com Berhad (DiGi) took place on the 7th of May 2008, and will strengthen both parties’ core businesses. The completion of the transfer establishes the foundation for the Alliance between the two companies which were announced the 19th of November last year.
Improving the nation’s telecommunication needs
Both TdC and DiGi collaborate on several business areas that can further contribute towards enhancing the nation’s telecommunications needs. Both parties will look into:
- Jointly developing new service offerings in the area of Fixed Mobile Convergence
- Optimizing the usage of TdC’s domestic and international fiber networks by DiGi
- Reselling of mobile services, including Mobile Virtual Network Operator services by TdC for selected markets
- Exploring mutual transfer of knowledge and technology between the employees of both parties
