TNB enters into the telecommunication sector

PUTRAJAYA: According to the Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo, Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB) has shown interest in the country’s telecommunications sector, especially in the wholesale broadband sector.

He added that the national utility company had informed them of their latest telecommunications initiatives including aiming to provide broadband services to 11,000 homes in Melaka.”They have also shown interest in introducing similar services in Kedah, Perak and Johor and I hope TNB sees the same potential in other states,” he told a press conference after launching the National Fiberisation And Connectivity Plan (NFCP) today.

Deputy Prime Minister Dr. Wan Azizah Wan Ismail launched the five-year NFCP plan (2019-2023).

The pilot project involving high-speed broadband network system with TNB’s optical fibre technology facility in Jasin, Melaka has shown good results, Gobind said.”This shows that if TNB intends to venture into this industry, I think they can play a very important role as they have an extensive infrastructure available throughout peninsular Malaysia,” he said.
