Free Internet access is important for underprivileged communities as it provides them with access to information and opportunities that were previously unavailable to them. With the Internet, people can access educational resources, job listings, healthcare information, and other essential services. This can help to bridge the digital divide and reduce inequalities between those who have access to technology and those who do not.

Additionally, free Internet can also stimulate local economies and promote social and political engagement. By providing free Internet access, communities can empower individuals to improve their own lives and the lives of those around them.

According to a news report by The Star, residents of Taman Bagan Jaya people’s housing project (PPR) will receive nine months of free internet service, with a total of 1,488 people benefiting.

The service is provided under the Jendela@PPR initiative, and is part of the Local Government Development Minister Nga Kor Ming’s focus on providing broadband to every household in the country to enhance their standard of living.

The Jendela@PPR pilot project, costing approximately RM22 million, will be implemented at 30 PPRs nationwide and cover 13,218 units, benefiting approximately 53,000 people from the B40 group.

He said that by the end of the next month, the Jendela@PPR programme should have been implemented in 382 PPR units.

The implementation will include laying fibre-optic cables and installing routers and modems to provide a 30Mbps broadband connection in each household.

If you are not living in the chosen PPR but you still wish to get an affordable broadband internet plan, you can apply for the Fixed Internet Broadband Unity Package that was announced just very recently.
