KUALA LUMPUR: CelcomDigi Bhd and I-Berhad have announced a collaboration to accelerate the digital development of Shah Alam as an Asean smart city by 2025.
The telecommunications company will provide limitless potential across segments in i-City with the deployment of its own-built fibre infrastructure as well as access to 5G connectivity and technology.
With its fibre-to-the-room (FTTR) service, CelcomDigi fibre can deliver speeds of up to one Gbps to any room within i-City homes, providing residents with the best value and fibre experience for their homes.
Existing Celcom or Digi postpaid customers in i-City can enjoy CelcomDigi’s ultra-fast and unlimited fibre plans at special promotional prices.
CelcomDigi chief executive officer Datuk Idham Nawawi said it is committed to providing the best solutions, offerings, and experiences to its customers, including i-City residents and businesses, by leveraging affordable fibre, 5G, and 4G technologies.
“We will offer convergence solutions for all their Internet and lifestyle needs, such as home entertainment, gaming, smart home Internet of Things applications, and many more,” he said in a statement today.
Idham added that CelcomDigi will collaborate on the development and co-creation of innovative digital services that will improve residents’ livelihoods and drive business growth in today’s digital ecosystem.
I-Berhad chairman Tan Sri Lim Kim Hong believes that the collaboration with CelcomDigi will open up a world of possibilities for Shah Alam residents, especially as the country accelerates its adoption of Industry 4.0.
He said Shah Alam, as Selangor’s administrative centre, has grown in popularity among investors, property buyers, and tenants.
Lim attributes the increased interest to its strategic location and exceptional accessibility.
“The launch of 5G in Malaysia will inspire a wider application of the internet of things. Now the potential to transform lives by connecting and empowering everyday objects and devices to enhance convenience, efficiency, and safety through data-driven automation and control becomes greater.
“As such, there is so much added value for residents with the integration of affordable ultra-fast internet connectivity at home and the convergence of 5G on mobile phones,” he said.
