You might not realized it but infrastructure sharing is actually a norm among the players in our industry and judging from the statement from Celcom as well as DiGi for Bursa Malaysia earlier today, it has been working well for them.
In the statement, Celcom and DiGi have agreed to renew their existing infrastructure sharing deal which was originally signed in 2011. Just like the original agreement, this collaboration has now been extended for additional three years starting from 18 January 2014.
Frankly speaking, it is not exactly a surprise since Celcom and DiGi have just recently signed a long-term deal with TM in order to help both telco cater to the increasing demands form their customers. In fact, I believe many would be baffled if Celcom and DiGi didn’t renew their agreement instead since the deal clearly has been beneficial to both parties.
