PETALING JAYA: The Multimedia Development Corp (MDeC) expects three more new MSC Malaysia Cybercentres to be set up before the end of this year and another three next year.
MDeC's chief executive officer, Datuk Badlisham Ghazali said the need for more cybercentres was in tandem with the Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) Malaysia Status companies' forecast growth of 12% this year.
The decision on the new cybercentres is expected to be made during the Information Council Meeting (ICM) chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak next week.
The meeting will also discuss the opening up of more cybercentres, he told reporters after the launching of the new Tenaga Nasional Bhd (TNB)-MSC Malaysia Performance Guarantees Guide Book, here on Oct 29.
The book is a set of minimum standards that TNB is offering to deliver premium service quality on electricity to designated MSC Malaysia Cybercentres and Cybercities.
To date, there are 16 MSC Malaysia Cybercentres nationwide. Among the areas awarded the MSC Malaysia Cybercentre status are Bandar Utama, KL Sentral, Melaka International Trade Centre, Menara MSC Cyberport and Mid Valley City.
On the three new cybercentres to be set up this year Badlisham said they are private initiatives. "They are the one who approached us and offered the locations and developments for cybercentre status," he said. The cybercentres are believed to be located in the Klang Valley.
MSC-status companies receive the full benefits listed in the MSC Malaysia Bill of Guarantee. -- Bernama
