KUALA LUMPUR, May 23 — Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim today gave the assurance that the transition of the 5G implementation model from a single wholesale network to a dual network will reduce the financial implications for the government on a large scale.
Anwar, who is also Finance Minister, told the Dewan Rakyat that the financial implications could be reduced through the transition because it included the involvement of telecommunication companies which was one of the terms set by the government.
“Setting the terms for all telcos to use the DNB network, existing structures until 80 per cent of the network is completed and ensuring the connectivity to include rural areas.
“If (the terms are) agreed, then after using the same facilities, telcos with very good profits are required to invest to ensure security,” he said when replying to a question from Rodziah Ismail (PH-Ampang).
Rodziah had wanted to know whether the government’s decision to move away from the single wholesale network model would result in losses and increase the 5G prices for consumers.
