PETALING JAYA: The dynamics of the telecommunications (telecoms) industry will change should the government alter its approach on the development of 5G to allow the private sector telecommunication companies (telcos) to build and own 5G networks after abandoning the single wholesale model.
The government surprised the industry yesterday by casting doubt over the single wholesale model as the answer for the 5G network rollout.
Communications and Multimedia Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa said the government was reconsidering the single wholesale model for the rollout of the 5G network.
It is doing so after receiving feedback from telcos and industry players and, a decision will be made in January.
He said the telcos have continued to question the government over the proposed 5G rollout model.Annuar Musa speaking to the media yesterday
This comes nine months after it gave its blessings to have a single 5G wholesale network instead of allowing telecoms players to build their own 5G networks.
The purpose of the single wholesale network was to avoid the duplication of resources and to ensure capital expenditure efficiency.What prompted the government to review the decision was the disgruntled industry over the single model announced in February.
Politicians, industry players and experts have continued to question the motive behind the creation of a single network entity when globally, the norm is to have at least two networks for the 5G rollout.
“(What was announced yesterday) is news to us. We are still trying to digest what the minister had said,’’ an executive said.
StarBiz sought the views of Celcom Axiata Bhd, Digi.com Bhd, Maxis Bhd, Telekom Malaysia Bhd, U Mobile, Digital Nasional Bhd (DNB) and even the industry regulator on the minister’s comment. DNB did not respond to queries.

It was decided then that its wholly-owned company DNB would roll out 5G on a wholesale model.
Any player can offer 5G services by riding on DNB’s 5G network.
Although DNB has ambitious rollout plans, the telco players have yet to sign any commercial or technical agreements for wholesale access because of several issues.
