DiGi plans to invest RM75 million over the next three years to roll out 3G broadband in Penang and Sabah.
DiGi’s Head of Strategy and New Business, Albern Murty said DiGi’s broadband coverage now stands at 31% of Penang’s population with plans to cover the whole of Penang by August.
DiGi 3G broadband covers Tanjung Tokong, along Gurney Drive, Penang International Airport, Queensbay Mall and parts of Georgetown.
DiGi says it has invested in High-Speed Packet Access technology to deploy a 14.4 Mbps for fast download and upload speeds of up to 2Mbps.
We’re a bit sceptical about the 31% population coverage in Penang though, as the source didn’t specifically say if its 3G or DiGi’s EDGE service combine. Remember, before 3G, DiGi claims EDGE service as broadband as well.
No words on other states in the report.
