Earlier today, YTL Communications has announced their 5G services in Malaysia during their launch, which marks the first mobile network operator to launch 5G locally.
If you didn’t know, YTL is one of the two companies to work with Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB) to bring 5G to Malaysia; the second being Telekom Malaysia (TM). DNB has also said that they aim to have 500 sites ready by the end of this year.
