During a media briefing, Too Tian Jen, U Mobile Chief Technology Officer stated,” U Mobile believes that the demand for smartphones and data will keep incrasing. Hence, we will continue our network expansion plans by rolling out 5,000 new sites over the next five years to maintain our leadership as the telco with the best overall customer experience.” Currently, U Mobile has over 12,000 sites in operation nationwide except for Malacca and Penang.
