We are confident that our products will make a positive impact on the lives of consumers in this market.”
YB Fahmi Fadzil, the Minister of Communications and Digital Malaysia, said that the launch of FreeYond’s affordable products would help to establish inclusivity and accessibility of digital products and services for all Malaysians. He believes that the launch marks a new turning point for Malaysia’s digital landscape.
