Malaysia's fastest growing mobile communications network spreads tentacles to Lahad Datu and Kunak

DiGi provides superior GSM mobile coverage for towns in Land Below the Wind

Lahad Datu, March 28 2005 - DiGi customers in Lahad Datu and Kunak now can experience superior mobile network coverage as the company begins to offer its quality mobcomm services to users in this area.

Lahad Datu and Kunak are important destinations in the Malaysian map, as both are quiet but important towns famed for being the gateways to renowned virgin rainforests of the Danum Valley Conservation Area, The Tabin Wildlife Reserve in the east and Madai Caves further south.

Visitors to the state will benefit from the improved mobile coverage that will allow them a stable network, ensuring that contact with loved ones is guaranteed. At the same time, this network development will also enable Sabahans residing in both areas to have enhanced communication tools, vastly facilitating business growth in the state.

"DiGi realizes that there are significant expansion possibilities in Lahad Datu and Kunak, therefore, with our growing customer base in Sabah, we are committed to continuously enhancing our communications network to provide customers unmatched network reliability, incredible speed and limitless potential for voice and data connections," said Mr. Benny Wee, DiGi's East Malaysian Regional Manager.

"This represents a significant investment by DiGi and clearly demonstrates our continued commitment to the monitoring and consequent upgrade and expansion of our network," he added.

As part of the coverage extension programme in both areas, DiGi is organizing a special promotion for its prepaid service. The first 1000 customers in Lahad Datu and the first 500 customers in Kunak who purchase a DiGi Beyond prepaid simpack will receive a unique DiGi premium in the form a metal CD holder.
