ICT and internet literacy plays an integral part of the Government’s effort to turn Malaysia into a high-income economy. The CBC programme provides an important role to narrow of the digitial divide between the urban and rural populations.
NuSuara has recently completed an exercise to provide the CBC-to-Home (Wi-Fi to home) facililties at all the 37 Celcom1CBC sites throughout the country. The CBC-to-Home programmes now enable Wi-Fi access within a range of 3km radius from the CBC centres. This enables the rural population to access the high-speed boradband from the comfort of their homes.
The CBC-to-Home programme augurs well with the free netbook distribution for students in the low-income group especially those in the rural areas.
