Allo Technology Sdn Bhd, a Cyberjaya-based ICT service provider wholly owned by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) recently received the award Broadband Telecom Company of the Year – Malaysia Awards. The award was announced at the 2022 Asian Telecom Awards held virtually last month.
As reported by the National News Agency Bernama, the award was in recognition of Allo’s responsive efforts to bridge the digital divide in Malaysia. Currently, Allo has provided fiber optic passes to over 180,000 homes in Melaka, Perak, Kedah, Penang, Selangor, Kuala Lumpur and Johor.
In case you are unfamiliar with the company, Allo provides high-speed broadband service that supports the Federal Government’s National Digital Network (Jendela) initiative. The company is bridging digital and aims to have 7.5 million fiber optic passes by the end of the year.
In addition, Allo also provides high-speed connectivity at an affordable rate leveraging TNB’s fiber optic network in Peninsular Malaysia. Consequently, it has helped open up opportunities for underserved people in suburban and rural communities.
Speaking of which, Allo is working closely with multiple Retail Service Providers (RSPs) to deliver High Speed Broadband (HSBB) at a faster rate and at a better price to underserved areas. So far, it has formed strategic collaborations with Maxis, Astro, Digi, Celcom, U Mobile, Freshtel and Redtone.
