Progresif marked a new milestone in its ongoing network expansion plans with the launch of a new tower at the Telisai highway today, bringing enhanced coverage and connectivity into the area.
The new tower is part of the company’s series of network expansion plans for Telisai which will see a total of three new sites going on-air in the area to improve coverage and to strengthen the overall experience for Progresif customers.
Paul Taylor, CEO of Progresif, said that the new tower sets the stage for the company to continue delivering innovative products and services to customers that travel along the highway for work or leisure.
“We believe that communication is all about providing access. The new Telisai highway tower will help drive connectivity and coverage for our customers so that they can continue to work or enjoy their favorite websites and entertainment, including Progresif Radio.”
“The new sites reflect our commitment to constant improvement and progress which are expressed through our core values of passion, communication and innovation,” he said.
Tony Hanley, Chief Technology and Information Officer of Progresif, said that the number of sites has increased by 20 per cent with 40 new sites going live over the past year.
“We’ve invested to enhance the capacity for our customers at over 120 existing sites. By making these continued investments, we can deliver a network that is readily able to keep up with the heavy demand for communications and data use,” he said.
“We’ve also worked hard to increase our overall network capacity by 50 per cent and built sites in less well served areas, such as in Temburong. We’re planning to drive our network into the more rural areas of Brunei so that the population can have access to communication through the Progresif network,” he said.
The launch of the Telisai highway tower was officiated by the Guest of Honor, Hj Azhar Hj Ahmad, Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Communications and Chairman of AITI.
Also present was Legislative Council Member YB Ramli Hj Lahit, Dr Nor Imtihan Hj Abdul Razak, in her capacity as the Acting Permanent Secretary (Administration and Finance) at the Ministry of Development, Board Member of Progresif Edzwan Zukri Pehin Orang Kaya Johan Pahlawan Dato Seri Setia Hj Adnan, , CEO of AITI Pg Hj Mohd Zain Pg Hj Abd Razak and senior officials from Progresif.
