“With the arrival of devices that utilise a micro SIM, we want to ensure that our customers have the best possible user experience, whatever device they may be using,” said Dato’ Sri Shazalli Ramly, Celcom’s Chief Executive Officer. “We do not want anyone to miss out on enjoying all the advantages of Malaysia’s no.1 mobile broadband network,” he added.
