Brunei Darussalm, Indonesia, Malaysia, and Singapore have pledged their commitment to align with the Asia Pacific Telecommunity’s (APT) 700 MHz band plan in a bid to meet the growing demand for mobile broadband data transmission in Southeast Asia. The agencies that have agreed to comply with the plan include Brunei’s Authority for Info-communications Technology Industry, Indonesia’s Directorate General Sumber Daya dan Perangkat Pos dan Informatika, the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), and the Infocomm Development Authority of Singapore. The APT plan aims to optimise the use of the broadcast spectrum that would be freed up after the analog switch-off, thus allowing for greater flexibility to deploy mobile broadband services on next-generation technology platforms such as 4G.
