PETALING JAYA (Nov 30): CelcomDigi Bhd is considering to speed up the merger integration efforts between Celcom and Digi networks, as the company is on track to achieve 30% integration by year end.

CelcomDigi chief executive officer Datuk Idham Nawawi said network integration and modernisation had been achieved at more than 4,400 sites as at end-October 2023, which was equivalent to 80% of the company’s plan.

“We might integrate more this year than what we planned earlier, which means 30% will be done this year, 40% next year, and the remaining 30% in the third year,” he said after officiating at the launch of CelcomDigi's all-in fifth generation (5G) and 4G postpaid plans on Thursday.

However, when asked whether CelcomDigi would set a new target, he said the numbers would not be much different from the initial targets.

Previously, CelcomDigi said the merger would see a thorough integration of the networks, and is expected to be completed within the next 24 to 30 months by consolidating the respective 12,000 sites from Celcom and Digi into a single network of 18,000 sites.
