Signing of High-speed Broadband Agreement

Partnership with REDtone Offers Fastest Speed in Desa Cemerlang â€" 14th January 2015

Johor Bahru, January 14, 2015 – A partnership between WB Land and REDtone today marked a joint commitment to provide high-speed broadband connectivity to Frontier Industrial Park in Desa Cemerlang.

This will see all factories in Frontier going beyond being “gated, guarded and green” to be broadband-ready through exclusive broadband packages offered by REDtone with speeds of up to 200Mbps, which is the fastest in the area.

WB Land Director Wong Yen Yap said that the partnership was in line with their aim to continually innovate and add value to businesses operating within Frontier.

“We want Frontier to be the number one choice for industrialists in Desa Cemerlang and we have consistently worked towards achieving this vision.

“In today’s borderless industrial world, having fast and secure internet connection is as important as water and electricity, to facilitate real-time communication with business partners, suppliers and customers across the globe. This will result in quicker turnaround for businesses, higher productivity and lower operational costs.

“High-tech and foreign-based companies will also be happy to note that we have now answered their call for faster connectivity,” he added.

Lau Bik Soon, Group CEO of REDtone International Bhd said that this strategic partnership will bring enormous benefits to all Frontier factories. As a specialist in business broadband, REDtone is committed to offering business-friendly broadband solutions. “We know the stringent prerequisites of businesses and have taken a further step of providing every Frontier factory with an option of redundancy link.

“The difference with us is that our broadband is highly scalable to meet different business needs and we can offer speeds of up to 50Mbps on wireless connection and even up to 200Mbps on wired connection,” added Lau.

Being a pioneer in its field, REDtone has transformed into an integrated telecommunications solutions provider with a proven track record of more than 15,000 corporate clients having benefited from its comprehensive offerings.

Through the partnership, WB Land will offer free 5Mbps broadband package to all factory owners and tenants at Frontier Industrial Park Phase 2 (Frontier 2) for one year.

Frontier Industrial Park has a gross development value of RM600 million and is spread across 136 acres of freehold land in Desa Cemerlang within Iskandar Malaysia. It is being developed over three phases with overall project completion by July 2018. It is only 15 minutes to Johor Port, 25 minutes to Woodlands Checkpoint and 30 minutes to Senai Airport.
