KUANTAN, NOV 26, 2015:Digi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd is strengthening its position in the East Coast of Peninsular Malaysia by expanding its 4G Long-term Evolution (LTE) coverage in the region, including in rural areas. DiGi chief network officer S. Kesavan said last year, DiGi increased the number of 4G LTE transmission stations eight-fold in the East Coast as part of its commitment to providing high-speed mobile Internet service to the region. “The East Coast is a key market for DiGi. We are happy to bring 4G LTE access to 18 towns in the region, covering 38% of the population in the three states.” “DiGi has also activated 4G LTE-A service with two% coverage to give customers twice the speed of 4G LTE,” he told the media after a briefing on the LTE coverage here today. He said postpaid and prepaid subscribers can also enjoy DiGi’s high-speed Internet browsing experience by changing or upgrading their 4G LTE SIM card for free at DiGi outlets. “DiGi customers can visit the on-going LTE carnival held in DiGi stores in Kuantan, Pahang; KB Mall in Kota Bharu, Kelantan and at any DiGi Store Express and choose various packages, starting from as low as RM25,” he said. Meanwhile, Kesavan encouraged DiGi customers in the East Coast states to participate in the “DigiWeWant4G Twitter” campaign, which was launched on Nov 16, to name the towns they want as the next location for the 4G LTE coverage, for example, “#DigiWeWant4G in #BukitKayuHitam in #Kedah”, or “# DigiWeWant4G in #Kemaman in #Terengganu”. “Locations with the most tweets stand a chance to receive high-speed Internet service after a new transmission tower is built in the area,” he added.
