High-speed internet restored at Ayer Hitam flood relief centre, Dr Wee thanks Comms Minister

PETALING JAYA: Fast internet access, vital to flood relief efforts, has been restored at the SMK Dato’ Seth flood relief centre (PPS), says Datuk Seri Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The Ayer Hitam MP thanked Communication and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil for acting quickly to restore fast internet access after he had shared complaints of slow internet speeds from rescue workers and evacuees during a site visit on Sunday (March 5).

“When I visited the flood victims in the PPS with Yong Peng assemblyman Ling Tian Soon, the relief workers expressed their dismay at the slow internet speeds.

“I immediately brought up the issue with Fahmi, who took speedy action within 24 hours to improve the connectivity at the school.

“Congrats and thank you, YB Menteri,” Dr Wee said in a Facebook post on Thursday (March 9).

In the same post, Dr Wee shared a picture of the note that Fahmi had passed to him on Wednesday (March 8), informing him that Telekom Malaysia had set up high speed internet connections at the relief centre.

In the note, Fahmi assured Dr Wee that Telekom Malaysia had set up high speed connectivity at the PPS with download speeds of 50 to 100Mbps and upload speeds of 20 to 50Mbps.
