Back in 2018, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) rolls out its high-speed broadband pilot project at Jasin, Melaka. The whole aim was to provide seamless connectivity to the rural areas in Jasin, Melaka. Now, TNB proposes to roll out the fibre broadband project at Perak soon.
TNB says it will take two weeks for the Perak state exco, Hasnul Zulkarnain Abd Munaim to approve the project. According to him, Perak is the first state to introduce the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP). The main aim of this government plan is to ensure all rural communities across Malaysia is able to have high-speed broadband connection.
TNB was able to cover more than 1,100 residential homes with its high-speed broadband connectivity. TNB is proud to say its connectivity plan was able to deliver speed of up to 1Gbps without laying any fibre-optic cables underground. How it works ism TNB utilises its existing electric poles to provide high-speed connectivity at different areas in Jasin, Melaka.
In conclusion, if TNB rolls out its fibre connectivity in Perak, rural residents will be able to subscribe to other broadband providers easily. At this moment, Maxis, Digi, Celcom, and Astro is offering its own fibre broadband service. City broadband is the latest broadband provider which offers various plans too.
