THE Unity Package prepaid mobile Internet plan, priced at RM30, is on sale starting today, said Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil.
He said through this package, youth, the disabled, the B40 income group, and senior citizens would have access to high-speed Internet of 30 gigabytes of data for six months, with a speed of 3Mbps at a lower price.
“The KKD (Ministry of Communications and Digital) has, in a short time, managed to obtain the approval of telecommunications service providers for a package for six months at a favourable price. I would like to thank the companies involved for responding to the government’s call to ease the burden on the people.
“Many other initiatives for telecommunications facilities will be announced soon to ensure that people can enjoy Internet access,” he said in his speech at the launch of the package at Desa Rejang Multipurpose Hall in Setapak today.
Also present were his deputy, Teo Nie Ching, KKD secretary-general Mohammad Mentek, and representatives from telecommunications companies.
Fahmi said the deal involved five telecommunications providers, namely CelcomDigi, Maxis, UMobile, Telekom Malaysia, and YTL Communications.
In reiterating the ministry’s stand on resolving the problem of dropped calls in 97% of populated areas by June, he said KKD would discuss the matter with the telecommunications companies in the coming weeks.
He said the move was in line with the ministry’s goal to ensure 80% 5G population coverage by the end of this year. – Bernama, February 28, 2023.
