- Top 10 most voted areas to get 4G LTE services, Setia Alam the first
DIGI Telecommunications Sdn Bhd has established a 4G LTE (Fourth Generation/ Long-Term Evolution) network tower in Setia Alam in the state of Selangor, part of the telco’s #DigiWeWant4G Twitter campaign.
In mid-November, Digi invited customers to nominate their towns to be the next in line to get 4G LTE services, promising to expand its 4G LTE network to the top 10 most voted areas, in addition to its original network rollout plan.
The campaign concluded on Dec 15, Digi said in a statement.
“We knew network coverage was important to Malaysians, but seeing the genuine response to this campaign and customers nominating their areas got us very excited,” said chief marketing officer Christian Thrane.
“It gave us another avenue to listen closely to our customers on where they would like to enjoy consistent high-speed Internet, which was valuable input into our work to build 4G LTE access for more people, and strengthen our coverage position,” he added.
In no particular order, the other nine most voted areas were Arau and Jejawi (Perlis); Papar and Tenom (Sabah); Batu Gajah (Perak); Bau and Limbang (Sarawak); Simpang Renggam (Johor); and Lunas (Kedah).
