New Straits Times - - Business -

KUALA LUMPUR: Cel­com Ax­i­ata Bhd is op­ti­mistic that its longterm evo­lu­tion fourth-gen­er­a­tion (4G) ser­vice would be on par with ma­jor peers by year-end as it is rolling out more net­work sites na­tion­wide.

Deputy chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer (busi­ness op­er­a­tions) Azwan Khan Os­man Khan said the ex­pan­sion of the 4G ser­vice was in progress and the com­pany was on track to re­alise the tar­geted pop­u­la­tion cov­er­age by yearend.

He said Cel­com had al­lo­cated RM1.5 bil­lion for cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture this year and a large chunk would be used for the ex­pan­sion works.

“The bulk of the al­lo­ca­tion is for up­grad­ing the ca­pac­ity and on new 4G sites na­tion­wide,” said Azwan af­ter a brief­ing on Cel­com’s new Xpax In­ter­net plans, here, yes­ter­day.

Xpax now of­fers up to 15 gi­ga­bytes (GB) of data.

Cel­com chief mar­ket­ing of­fi­cer Zal­man Ae­fendy Zainal Abidin said cus­tomers could choose from four new In­ter­net plans: daily plan of RM5 (up to 2GB), two weekly plans of RM6 (500MB) and RM19 (5GB).

The monthly plan of RM79 (15GB) comes with free en­ter­tain­ment pack of Mu­sic Walla and Video Walla. Ber­nama
