"Internet facilities are now a necessity like electricity and water. We need these facilities throughout the country," Muhyiddin told the media after chairing a meeting of the cabinet committee on broadband, here on March 4.
He said it was time to make it compulsory for broadband to be provided in buildings in order to achieve the target of 100 per cent accessibility to broadband services throughout the country this year.
Muhyiddin said housing schemes without such infrastructure would incur higher cost later."The Ministry of Housing and Local Government must discuss with the various stakeholders to ensure this could be implemented. It is still being considered by the ministry and we urge that this matter be speeded up," he said.
Efforts are also being made to amend the Uniform Building By-Laws 1984 to make the broadband infrastructure compulsory.- Bernama
