End of the road for 3G: what does it mean for you?


The development of 3G was expected to continue under NFCP but Jendela will phase it out in stages and sunset it by the end of next year, as this would allow spectrum used by 3G to be re-allocated for 4G. — Pixabay

The National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP), one of the most ambitious initiatives to get the country connected, has been supplanted by the National Digital Infrastructure Plan (Jendela), partly due to the pandemic.

When NFCP was announced two years ago, the world was not facing a Covid-19 pandemic, said the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC)’s new chairman, Dr Fadhlullah Suhaimi Abdul Malek. A medical doctor turned technology policy maker, he highlighted how the movement control order (MCO) has impacted the public’s lifestyle and Internet consumption habits.
