CelcomDigi Berhad has partnered with Malaysia's No.1 Technology City, i-City, to accelerate Shah Alam's digital development as a smart city in ASEAN by 2025, offering limitless potential across segments with CelcomDigi's fiber infrastructure, 5G connectivity and technology.
CelcomDigi's fiber-to-the-room (FTTR) service can deliver speeds of up to 1Gbps to each room in i-City homes using its newest own-built fiber technology, offering residents the finest value and fiber experience. Furthermore, i-City residents can enjoy CelcomDigi's ultra-fast and unlimited fiber plans at exclusive promotional prices, especially for existing Celcom or Digi Postpaid customers who will save even more.
Datuk Idham Nawawi, Chief Executive Officer, CelcomDigi noted the company’s commitment to delivering the best services for their customers, saying, “We will offer convergence solutions for all their Internet and lifestyle needs such as home entertainment, gaming, smart home Internet of Things applications and many more. We are excited to collaborate with i-City, a renowned technology and digital city, on this strategic partnership. We will work together towards the development and co-creation of innovative digital services that will elevate the livelihoods of residents and growth of businesses, within today’s digital ecosystem.”
I-Berhad Chairman, Tan Sri Lim Kim Hong, also said that the collaboration will give Shah Alam people several options, especially given that the country adopts Industry 4.0. Shah Alam, Selangor's administrative hub, has increased its appeal for more investors, property buyers and tenants, due to its strategic location and accessibility.
The arrival of 5G in Malaysia will promote IoT adoption, a notable development in overall economic growth and investment. Data-driven automation and control may now connect and empower ordinary objects and gadgets to improve convenience and efficiency in daily living. The integration of 5G on mobile phones with inexpensive ultra-fast internet connectivity at home adds value for residents.
Lim added that this allows i-City to unveil its next attraction, a 5-dimensional edutainment facility using the latest immersive technologies.
