While residing in the city, it can occasionally be challenging to get an Internet connection. For individuals who reside in rural areas, it is even more difficult, especially for today’s students who must rely on the internet for online learning. The government is assisting the students by putting in place a 5G network to help alleviate this predicament.
In a report by Malay Mail, according to Communications and Multimedia Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa, 1,000 carefully chosen schools around the nation, including those in rural areas, would have access to the 5G network by the end of this year and the ministry was still awaiting permission from the Education Ministry.
We are still waiting for the green light from the Education Ministry, and I have already discussed with the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and Digital Nasional Berhad (DNB), who have given their commitment to make a success of the 5G network implementation in schools.
Apart from this, we have also decided to select five or six schools so far under the starting concept to test the capacity of the 5G network.Communications and Multimedia Minister, Tan Sri Annuar Musa
He stated that the 5G facility that will be installed in schools would help consumers in the neighbourhood as well as school administrations improve the learning process.
