25 Nov 2022
Ericsson is looking forward to continue supporting the Malaysian government’s ambitions to deliver a new era of growth, connectivity and prosperity for the people with its commitment in technology, investment and expertise.
Ericsson Malaysia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh head David Hägerbro said the telecommunications service provider, as a global ICT leader that has been in Malaysia for 57 years, is committed to working with the government, mobile network operators and industry to accelerate the country’s digital transformation.
“The 5G network we are rolling out together with Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) for Malaysia will be a catalyst for economic growth, transform lifestyles, and deliver best-in-class education and healthcare, among many other things,” he said in a statement today.
With the appointment of Malaysia’s Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, Hägerbro hoped for the long-term stability of the government and policies that would drive Malaysia and the economy further forward.
Yesterday, Anwar took his oath of office as the 10th Prime Minister before Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.
According to Ericsson’s largest consumer study, about four million Malaysians are expected to sign up for the fifth-generation (5G) broadband cellular network service in 2023.
