    The Communications and Digital Ministry will be prioritizing Internet coverage along roads connecting populated areas, according to Minister Fahmi Fadzil. He emphasized that Internet access is a basic facility that all citizens should enjoy, just like roads, electricity, and water. The ministry and the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) will address this issue.

    During a recent working visit to Negri Sembilan, Fahmi identified the need for better connectivity along roads from Rembau to Felda Palong 11 in Jempol. He mentioned that the Internet access in Rembau and Felda Palong 11 is fantastic, but there is no coverage along the way. This has prompted the ministry and MCMC to take action.

    Speaking at the Selangor state-level ‘Kita Madani’ programme in Kampung Bukit Changgang, Banting, Fahmi highlighted that the first quarter of this year saw a fixed broadband services penetration rate of 61.6% in Selangor. Additionally, the total mobile broadband penetration rate was 126.1%. He expressed the government’s commitment to ensuring that Internet access in Selangor continues to improve.

    Fahmi also addressed a claim on social media regarding the government agreeing for Employees Provident Fund (EPF) contributors aged 55 and above to only withdraw their savings on a monthly basis. After verifying the information with EPF CEO Datuk Seri Amir Hamzah, Fahmi confirmed that the claim was not true. He stated that the matter was still in the study stage, and EPF had no intention of implementing the policy for existing contributors at present.

    EPF had previously issued a statement stating that the proposal to formalize a monthly drawdown mechanism for members was still under study. They emphasized that they would take into consideration the ability and readiness of members to transition to such a system.
