DNB is focused on delivering the committed target of 80% 5G Nationwide Coverage by end 2024, if not earlier. The network currently reaches some 15 million people today and when fully deployed, it will reach more than 30 million people and businesses.
Digital Nasional Berhad also said that Malaysia’s 5G network has achieved almost 50% coverage of populated areas (COPA) with some 3,900 sites as at end-2022 – comfortably exceeding the target of 40%.
State and local councils supported DNB by providing accelerated approvals for deployment. Consequently, DNB was able to recover some shortfalls in setting up sites and achieved a speedier deployment during the last month.
5G Nationwide Coverage
DNB has achieved more than 90% COPA throughout Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya, and Selangor as well as some 50% across Johor, Malacca and Negeri Sembilan. All other states are in various stages of deployment and, together with the aforementioned states, are expected to achieve full network deployment in 2024, if not earlier.
