7 Dec 2009

Malaysian mobile network operator Celcom is aiming to double the number of its mobile broadband customers to one million by the end of 2010, according to The Star Online. The cellco’s CEO, Datuk Seri Shazali Ramly, said that as of end-September 2009 it had approximately 475,000 mobile broadband subscribers, with Celcom hoping to see that surpass half a million by the end of this year. ‘It’s our ambition to reach one million mobile broadband customers next year. That’s our dream. If we fail … don’t scold us,’ Shazalli said, adding that such services will be an area of focus next year, noting: ‘Operators including Celcom will be under pressure next year as well given that we have to achieve the government’s target of having a 50% internet penetration rate.’
