The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC), with cooperation from the Sabah government through Sabah Parks, has identified the location for the construction of a telecommunication tower in Pulau Sipadan near here.

Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (K-Komm) secretary-general Datuk Seri Mohammad Mentek expects work to construct the tower to begin by end of this year and, once completed, four telecommunication companies (telcos) - Celcom, Maxis, Digi and U-Mobile - will provide services on the island. 

“Internet service with a speed range of 35mbps will be available for tourists and security posts in Sipadan,” he told Bernama here today.
