Malaysia media revealed the last mobile operators are ironing out details on the cost of using a single 5G wholesale network managed by state-owned Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) after recently reaching agreements to take equity stakes in the entity.
All six operators have until the end of August to finalise access terms, with Maxis and U-Mobile the last to agree on stakes, Malay Mail reported.
The Star wrote the government has no plans to extend the deadline.
Operators reportedly agreed terms to share ownership of DNB in June, with Telekom Malaysia and YTL Communications the first to sign up, and Celcom Axiata and Digi coming on board later.
Malaysia’s government had offered to allocate up to 70 per cent equity in DNB to operators, but Celcom Axiata, Digi, Maxis and U-Mobile reportedly pressed for a combined majority stake: the government rejected this move.Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back
