EDOTCO Supports JENDELA To Improve Internet Services
It also says the government’s drive to accelerate the implementation of the JENDELA project as a national effort to improve internet network facilities in the country
EDOTCO said it gives full support to the government's plan with the existing JENDELA initiative and will strive help drive the evolution of the local telecommunications sector, including better internet services.
"As one of the leading telecommunications infrastructure companies in Malaysia and a proud partner of the JENDELA initiative, EDOTCO is ever ready to drive and support the evolution of Malaysia’s telecommunications sector, as well as to amplify digital transformation efforts across businesses, society and the government, paving the way for a better Malaysia for all Malaysians," the company says in a media release on the Budget 2023.
It also says the government’s drive to accelerate the implementation of the JENDELA project as a national effort to improve internet network facilities in the country, and allocating RM 725 million to implement digital connectivity in 47 industrial areas and nearly 3,700 schools is a positive move.
"This allocation is a testament to Malaysia’s promising future digital economy, driving EDOTCO closer to our goal of connecting the unconnected and bridging the digital divide, especially for disadvantaged and vulnerable communities," says Adlan Tajudin, CEO of EDOTCO Group.
"Connectivity has become a necessity and 5G technology promises to revolutionize the way we communicate and connect with each other.
"The government's target to reach 80% 5G coverage at a reasonable price for the people ensuring no one is left behind by end of 2023 is commendable for Malaysia to advance towards the Shared Prosperity Vision 2030," he adds.
With the current Budget’s focus on delivering faster, cheaper and better connectivity nationwide, particularly in rural areas, all stakeholders in the industry needs to come together to drive the nation’s agenda.
"We believe that it is an important roadmap that will accelerate Malaysia’s pandemic recovery journey and ensure that the country is well-prepared to tackle the global inflation and other future challenges."
