Digi to collaborate with Allo Technology to provide Malaysians with more connectivity choices

Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd (Digi) and Allo Technology Sdn. Bhd. (Allo), a wholly owned subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), has announced an agreement to provide Malaysians with more connectivity choices for home broadband services.

Through the collaboration, Digi will leverage on Allo’s Layer 2 High Speed Broadband (HSBB) Network Service solutions to expand its home broadband footprint to cover approximately 45,000 homepasses located in selected areas in Melaka, Perak, and Cyberjaya. This expansion brings Allo’s cumulative number of homepasses to 155,000 by Quarter 2, 2021 as the company continues expanding to other states nationwide.

Digi’s Chief Marketing Officer, Praveen Rajan said, “We are excited to once again partner with Allo in our effort to provide more customers with total connectivity options, allowing them to experience high-speed home broadband services at home and on-the-go. Working with partners like Allo allows us to speed up the delivery of home broadband services especially during these times when there is a critical demand for a reliable connectivity for remote work and educational needs.”

Allo’s Chief Executive Officer Rodzi Ahmad welcomed the partnership with Digi, which will be expanding its presence by leveraging Allo’s Open Access carrier network. Rodzi hoped Digi’s expanding coverage would benefit the community in terms of experiencing better connectivity and help improve their quality of life. “Allo understands the importance of staying ahead of the global curve especially in a digitally-driven world, and together, we can grow to ensure robust, high quality and affordable digital connectivity for the well-being of the people and nation.” Rodzi highlighted, adding that Allo is an enabler for the Retails Service Providers (RSPs) to expand their offerings and services, as well as bringing more choices to end customers.”

This collaboration is an extension of a partnership both parties initiated to implement a pilot project providing unlimited home broadband services to 1,100 residents and businesses in Melaka early last year. The pilot project was part of the previous National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP)’s drive to accelerate fiberisation across Malaysia.

With the recent multiple partnerships announced, Digi now has the opportunity to bring quality home broadband service to more than 3.5 million households in Malaysia.

This collaboration is in line with the Government’s call for greater cooperation amongst the industry players. By leveraging on existing infrastructure to optimise investments, players can now focus on improving customers’ broadband access and experience.
