Last year December, Fahmi Fadzil, the Communications and Digital Minister (KKD) unveils the “Pakej Perpaduan”, which is a prepaid mobile data plan that offers subscribers 30GB for RM30 over the course of six months. This data plan will be offered to young people, B40 communities, people with disabilities, senior residents, and veterans of the police and military.

Just a few days ago, Fahmi introduced a new RM5 per month broadband Internet plan according to a report by the New Straits Times.

He said that the new package will be beneficial to many users, particularly the low-income group and Persons with Disabilities (PWD), during his 40-minute live interview with local radio station “KELANTANfm”.

The ministry plans to unveil a more affordable package with faster internet speeds in the near future. The new package will cost RM5 per month, which is cheaper than the current one at RM10.

The package is specifically targeted at individuals from the B40 income group, senior citizens, and PWD between the ages of 12 and 30.

Fahmi didn’t provide any other details, but we will be keeping our eyes open on this one. Stay tuned to our page and social media for updates.
