What’s New And What’s Next
Progresif Cellular Sdn. Bhd. proudly announced today the pending launch of 4G+ access for all customers, as the first of a number of changes that will define what’s new and what’s next for Progresif and the ICT sector in Brunei.
Since their launch in late 2014 Progresif has seen exponential growth with their customer base increasing from 20K up to 200K by mid 2019. Over that time Progresif has delivered on their promise to bring innovation through a suite of diversified products and services, and a number of firsts for the Sultanate with their expansion into Fintech, Media & Entertainment. A few milestones include Brunei’s first Mobile Wallet by a telco, Mobile Radio Station and their event promotion and ticketing portal, Progresif events.
Following the announcement and formation of Unified National Network (UNN), there has been much anticipation of what’s to come for consumers. While the public has been made aware of anticipated benefits, there has been little information to date on the specifics of the enhancements to come.
“Progresif has always been more than just a mobile provider. Our mission statement since day one is about connecting people and empowering them. This next evolution of our business helps us to take the next critical steps in delivering even greater innovation while providing world class services backed by a stronger and growing network. Our customer support on this journey will allow us to give back even more to the community through our products and services and our Corporate Social Responsibility programmes. We are excited to be bringing 4G+ to our loyal customers and look forward to welcoming so many more in the coming months.“ said Hjh Nurul Haniah Haji Jaafar, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Progresif.
From their Gadong Headquarters, Progresif has excitedly announced the first of a number of upcoming developments for network users, delivering the news that soon every Progresif customer will have access to the newly upgraded 4G+ network. Progresif announced that the testing began two weeks ago and will be extended to all staff this week.
Corporate Communications Manager, Hafiza Mohamad stated, “With the upgrade to 4G+, customers can look forward to network speeds up to 10 times faster than 3G. During testing we have seen average speeds between 25-30Mbps and as high as 80mbps+.” Mrs. Mohamad continued, “While 4G+ is among the most anticipated announcements from Progresif, we are also happy to announce that when we launch customers will be able to bring their mobile number when they switch their service to Progresif.”
Some of the changes that can be expected involve new mobile plans that will alter the prices and payment structures and deliver greater value across an expanding suite of products including Fibre Broadband to the home, public Wi-Fi access and a new content streaming app, Progresif Media, that will host the best of local, regional and Hollywood film, video and audio content, as well as many new, soon to be announced, developments.
