According to the PM, RM15 billion will be spent on 5G rollout.

As Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said today, the government will start rolling out 5G infrastructure and technology services by the end of 2021. Muhyiddin revealed that RM15 billion will be invested in 5G deployment projects nationwide over the next 10 years, speaking at the virtual launch of MyDigital and the Malaysia Digital Economy Blueprint.

“With this, Malaysia will be one of the first countries in the region to build a 5G ecosystem using real-time internet and cloud services to enable immediate information sharing,” he said in identifying the essential digital infrastructure that needs to be built first under the initiative. The others are investing RM21 billion over the next five years to improve existing connectivity through the National Digital Network or the Jendela program.
