Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has announced that Malaysia’s Broadband penetration had exceeded 50% ahead of schedule with 53.5% penetration today. As a comparison, broadband penetration was only 22% in 2008 and the target is to reach 75% penetration by 2015.
The achievement he said was contributed by the efforts by both private and government sectors especially in developing community internet centres at rural areas. So far 6 Kampung WiFi (WiFi village) had been implemented with 3100 more expected to be completed by 2014.
