Digi Telecommunications (Digi) today added Papar and Tenom in Sabah to the list of towns with 4G LTE coverage as voted by Malaysians in #DigiWeWant4G twitter campaign.
Digi's head of Sabah Region, Anthony Ho, said, "Papar and Tenom in Sabah now join the list of towns in Digi's rollout of 4G LTE after coming in the top 10 of our #DigiWeWant4G Twitter campaign."
Ho said that Digi engaged customers in November 2015 with a month-long 'You Tweet, We Build' campaign to nominate their towns as part of Digi's 4G LTE network rollout.
"To date, we have deployed and switched on our 4G LTE infrastructure to serve customers in Setia Alam in the Klang Valley and the northern peninsular towns of Lunas, Batu Gajah, Jejawi and Arau," said Ho. "We're pleased to be unveiling the people's tower and powering up 4G LTE here in Papar as well as Tenom. We are looking to expand to other areas in East Malaysia in the coming weeks and we will bring 4G LTE to all top 10 areas soon."
"The campaign was a great way for us to listen to our customers and is crucial to us as it helps us understand their needs and roll out our network strategically and efficiently while strengthening our coverage position. In Sabah, we have increased our 4G LTE coverage to 60 percent of populated areas, which covers 20 cities and major towns," he said.
"Malaysians see the value of good 4G LTE coverage, and we look forward to see Digi customers enjoy a consistent high-speed internet experience on-the-go with for all they want to do: high-quality video and music streaming, faster sharing on social media and internet browsing, and more," added Ho.
