Celcom Axiata Berhad (Celcom) is providing support to flood affected Malaysians by working to resolve and restore impacted network services as quickly as possible. This includes enhancing connectivity support at flood relief centres nationwide while also providing necessities and food supplies to flood victims.

Celcom’s Network team has been on high alert since the beginning of the flood and have been closely monitoring its network operations by responding quickly and minimising impacts on network services.

The floods have impacted more than 100 network sites nationwide, due to power outages and in some areas, high water levels and severe road conditions have prevented Celcom’s network team to access the affected sites. Engineers of Celcom are standing by to restore impacted sites as soon as conditions are safe.
