Prices Of Fixed Broadband Could See Downward Revision Next

Efforts to improve internet access can prompt a ‘quantum leap’ that can maximise the country’s digital economy revenue, says Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil.

He said the effort could also help bridge the socioeconomic gap between the people in urban and rural areas.

“It is important for us to ensure that basic things such as access to the digital economy are improved, the internet (speed) needs to be fast and the packages cheap. We are making sure of that and there are things that need to be negotiated further…previously it was for prepaid (line) and there will be something for fixed line broadband as well,” he said.

Last month Fahmi said the government would introduce the Unity Package prepaid mobile internet plan at a lower price of RM5 per month which would be on the market in February. He said the introduction of the package was in line with the Unity Government’s desire under the leadership of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim to reduce the cost of living and ensure comprehensive digital connectivity for Malaysians.

The government has also announced a new 5G network implementation policy to be tabled in next cabinet sitting which is scheduled to be before quarter 1.
