DiGi sees no need for 3G until 2009/10

22 May 2006

Malaysian cellco DiGi Telecommunications has said it does not see an immediate demand for mobile broadband services and will instead invest heavily in the expansion of its EDGE networks, according to the Business Times. DiGi failed in its bid to obtain a 3G licence earlier this year. ‘We have our EDGE solutions before we move to broadband,’ chief executive officer Morten Lundal told reporters after the company’s annual general meeting. ‘I don’t think broadband is important for Malaysia until the next three to four years. We have our strategy and will be there when it happens.’
