"PULAU PINANG, Oct 22 (Bernama) -- DiGi Telecommunications Sdn Bhd will expand its Turbo 3G coverage to the whole of Penang starting next year.
Its market segment and product head, Albern Murty said to date, the company had extended coverage to 70 per cent of the state.
'This is our promise to the people of Penang. The 100 per cent coverage will make it easier for everyone to surf the internet anywhere and at any time,' he said.
He told this to reporters after a launching ceremony of the Turbo 3G data and voice services here Thursday.
The event was officiated by the Penang Chief Minister,Lim Guan Eng.
Albern said expansion of the 3G service was being done five months after introduction of the broadband service in the state.
'Introducing the Turbo 3G for laptop and normal computer usage is aimed at better management of the network before utilising it for mobile phones this year itself,' he said.
Meanwhile, apart from Penang, Digi will also launch the Turbo 3G system in Sabah and other states at a date to be determined.
