IT was an eventful week for 5G development in Malaysia. The government announced a transition from a single wholesale network (SWN) to a dual wholesale network (DWN) model once it attains 80% of 5G coverage for the country’s populated areas by the end of the year.

CelcomDigi Bhd terminated DNB’s share subscription while Malaysia was allegedly warned by US and EU envoys about the risk to national security if untrustworthy suppliers were allowed to participate in the 5G rollout, and the likely hesitation of Western direct investment in Malaysia if the existing model were to be upended.
