TNB Owned Allo Technology Is Malaysia’s Broadband Telecom Company Of The Year

TNB wholly-owned telecommunication arm, Allo Technology Sdn Bhd has been recognised as Malaysia’s Broadband Telecom Company of the Year during the Asian Telecom 2022 award ceremony.

The award held virtually, recognised Allo for its responsive efforts in bridging the digital divide in the country, providing quality broadband connectivity at an affordable rate which then is able to support the underserved in suburban and rural communities.

Organised by the Asian Business Review, the Asian Telecom Awards programme honours top telco companies that pioneered ground-breaking products and solutions that stand out and displayed resilience despite various market challenges in the past year.

Allo’s Chief Executive Officer, Ir. Mohamed Ghous Ahmad said Allo is contributing to the Government’s effort to bridge the digital divide through JENDELA which targets to have 7.5 million fibre optic premise passes by the end of this year.

At present, Allo has completed more than 180,000 home passes in Melaka, Perak, Kedah, Pulau Pinang, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur, and Johor. Allo is aiming to reach 300,000 home passes by the end of this year.

“By leveraging on TNB’s fibre optic network in Peninsular Malaysia, Allo is working closely with multiple Retail Service Providers (RSPs) to provide High-Speed Broadband (HSBB) at a faster rate and better pricing in underserved areas.

“The effort will bridge the digital divide and empower Malaysians in underserved areas via various aspects such as digital economy development, education, and community development.

“By working closely with the RSPs, Allo will fill the gaps by providing fibre optic access to as many places as possible,” added Mohamed Ghous.

Allo has formed strategic collaborations with seven RSPs so far, namely Maxis, Astro, Digi, Celcom, U Mobile, Freshtel, and Redtone. It is keen to collaborate with more RSPs to facilitate connectivity in underserved areas.
