KUALA LUMPUR: Celcom Axiata Bhd has bagged a related party award from Telekom Malaysia Bhd (TM) to provide the 4G Multi-Operator Core Network (MOCN) to TM’s subsidiary, webe digital Sdn Bhd.

TM said 4G MOCN is an alternative network sharing technology which complements the existing 2G and 3G domestic roaming (DR) services arrangement through an agreement which was entered into between TM, webe and Celcom in January 2016.

“This 4G MOCN award will enable webe to further enhance its existing network coverage. This current initiative is in line with TM’s continuous efforts to improve customers’ experience and its aspiration towards a converged digital lifestyle,” TM added in a stock exchange filing.

The value of the award will be determined based on usage and the rates as stipulated in the contract, said TM.

Axiata Group Bhd, the parent company of Celcom, in a separate filing said it will provide the 2G DR, 3G DR, 4G DR and/or 4G MOCN services and facilities for webe for a period of three years.
