S’gor hopes for full Net penetration in five years

SHAH ALAM, 27 May 2009: Selangor hopes to achieve full internet penetration in five years, said State Exco for Welfare, Women Affairs, Science, Technology and Innovation Rodziah Ismail.

This could be achieved via a RM2mil communication project to be undertaken by local private telecommunication companies and also those from abroad.

“When completed, internet penetration in Selangor will increase from 30% currently to 100%,” she told reporters after the State Exco meeting here today.

Other than internet communication companies like Telekom Malaysia and Jaring, Selangor users could also enjoy a hybrid wireless infrastructure network by Prozontech Sdn Bhd.

Rodziah said companies wishing to join the project would have to ensure internet penetration in rural and urban areas and that service would not suffer with increasing consumers.

Meanwhile, Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim said the decision to form a task force to formulate a guideline for the sale of liquor was based on feedback and complaints that youths could easily buy liquor.

He said the state government did not prevent anyone from being involved in the liquor business but only wanted to control its sale to stop motorists from driving when drunk.

The task force comprised representatives from the Selangor Islamic Council, local authorities and traders. — Bernama

    I can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel.
