Malaysian telecom DiGi Telecommunications [DiGi] has conducted a new nationwide 'Best for Internet Network Drive Test' with more than 600 of its employees over 26 cluster locations to test the telecom's brand new network.

According to a statement, this move was part of a "continuous effort by DiGi to mobilise its ambassadors on the ground and constantly review and provide feedback on how the network [which provides mobile voice, internet and digital services to 11 million customers in Malaysia] can be improved further."

In addition to testing the new network, DiGi employees also asked DiGi customers for their user experiences during the past six months. "This is very much in line with the DiGi's ambition to deliver the best Internet experience for all its customers by offering access to high quality, consistent, high-speed internet connectivity," continued the statement.

Earlier in March of this year, DiGi chief operating office Albern Murty said the company has completed a two-year network modernisation exercise to deliver an enhanced high quality internet service to Malaysians.

In the past two years, DiGi has invested about RM1.5 billion [US$0.46 billion] in capital expenditure to modernise its network as well as expand its footprint nationwide, Murty said.

"We have swapped every electronic part in more than 5,500 sites with brand new equipment, expanded our HSPA+ 3G network to more than 80 percent population coverage, and increased our own and jointly built fibre network to more than 3,200 kilometres nationwide," he added.
