A wish for better broadband


BROADBAND connectivity is the underlying foundation of a digital economy. It contributes towards a nation’s development. The Inter-national Telecommunications Union reported in 2019 that a 10% increase in broadband penetration in a country could have an impact on GDP growth per capita of up to 1.5%. For a developing nation like Malaysia, the impact on our economy would be even greater.

This is why it is commendable that the Communications and Multimedia Ministry is recommending that the government consider broadband connectivity the country’s third public utility under the upcoming Budget 2021. This will make it as important as electricity and water and ensure that the rakyat will experience decent quality broadband at home or on the move.
