PUTRAJAYA – The government has decided to proceed with the dual wholesale network system for the roll-out of ultra-fast 5G connectivity in the country, said Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil.

However, he said the implementation of the roll-out would continue under the government’s special purpose vehicle Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) until 5G reaches 80% coverage of populated areas (COPA) by the end of 2023.

He said the decision on the matter came following a recent cabinet meeting.

Pay no mind to Huawei 5G ‘warnings’, US, EU pressure, say analysts

PETALING JAYA – Despite warnings against commissioning Huawei as the nation’s 5G network vendor over its alleged risks to national security and foreign investment, analysts are backing up Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil’s call to remain impartial and exercise the nation’s sovereignty. 

Universiti Malaya (UM) senior lecturer Karl Lee said Malaysia has its own stand as a nation that is independent, neutral, and non-aligned.

As such, its decision regarding the network vendor will be based on its own national security considerations, technological sustainability, and financial affordability – independent of the “warnings” given by both the United States and European Union envoys.
