The country’s six mobile network operators (MNOs) are expected to execute their respective access agreements (AAs) with Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) to lease the latter’s 5G network by end of October 2022.
DNB chief operating officer Nasution Mohamed said all six MNOs have signed the letters that essentially lock the terms of their respective agreement.
“The six MNOs will have until the end of this month to sign the access agreement,” he told Bernama on the side-line of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) briefing on Oct 18.
Earlier this month, it was reported that six MNOs, namely Celcom Axiata Bhd, Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd, YTL Communications Sdn Bhd and Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) together with Maxis Bhd and U Mobile Sdn Bhd have reached agreements on the terms in the AAs. On October 7, DNB also announced that four MNOs — Celcom Axiata, Digi Telecommunications, YTL Communications and TM, had executed share subscription agreements for a total 65 per cent equity stake in the company.
