Limbang and Lawas in Sarawak latest to join in DiGi's network foray

Telco gains ground in East Malaysia with superior network coverage

Limbang, February 8 2005 - DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd announced today it had extended its reach in East Malaysia by ensuring that residents, visitors and passers-by to the gateways of Brunei - Lawas and Limbang - are covered with quality mobile coverage with its recent network development programme in Sarawak.

Limbang and Lawas are thriving fishing towns in Northern Sarawak, and the traffic of people that pass through from other parts of Sabah & Sarawak into Brunei and vice versa have made these quiet towns flourishing hubs, continually contributing towards the growth of the states' economy. DiGi's mobile network expansion here will allow its customers to experience quality mobile coverage and services when they travel to these towns or for potential resident customers who are looking for a mobile communications' service to cater to their evolving needs.

"Our mobile service would make it easier for people around Lawas and Limbang to keep in touch with their friends and family. At the same time, we hope that the improved coverage and reach of the mobile communications network helps in facilitating business advancement throughout Sarawak," said Mr. Benny Wee, DiGi's East Malaysian Regional Manager.

Increasingly, the demand and requirements for mobile services in Sarawak has driven DiGi into ensuring that all systems and technology are in place for smooth connectivity. "DiGi realizes that mobile communications is very important for business and social purposes, playing a vital role to the economic development of regional communities. There are significant expansion possibilities here and especially with our growing customer base, DiGi is committed to continuously building our presence in the State," Mr. Wee added.

DiGi will continue aggressively to identify more areas, both rural and urban, to offer its quality mobile service as the company strives to ensure that more and more of the Malaysian population is covered by the DiGi network.

As part of the coverage extension programme in Sarawak, DiGi is organizing a special promotion for its prepaid service. Effective February 16 onwards, the first 1000 customers who purchase a DiGi Beyond prepaid simpack will receive an exclusive CD pouch. The promotion is from February 16 and will last until April 16 2005.
