Wifi Smart Selangor expanded to outlying areas

SHAH ALAM, JULY 24: The state government is targeting 4,100 Wifi Smart Selangor installations throughout Selangor by December for the benefit of the rakyat.
Education, Human Capital Development, Science, Technology and Innovation Exco Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said the target included additions in outlying areas to ensure the implementation is enjoyed by all citizens.
He said till today there are 3,239 Wifi Smart Selangor hotsposts with an increase of 2,981 hotspots compared to the previous year.
“The total targeted is higher as the year ends and it is being implemented in rural areas to ensure that wifi installation is not concentrated in towns,” he said when answering the oral question by Kajang Assemblyman at the fifth term of the 13th Selangor State Assembly.
At the same time, Nik Nazmi said that the Wifi Smart Selangor coverage in towns has reached 76%.
He said the areas included Shah Alam City Council (MBSA), Petaling Jaya City Council (MBPJ), Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ), Kajang Municipal Council (MPKJ) and Klang Municipal Council (MPK).
“Hotspot installation is focused on high density areas involving youth and also places with public interest.
“The percentage of Wifi Smart Selangor coverage in cities is higher as 93% of Selangor citizens live there,” he said.
Wifi Smart Selangor is a free service by the State Government as a benefit to the public and has over 3,000 hotspots throughout the state.
The initiative is implemented as the State Government’s commitment to reduce the digital divide and improve the standard of living for the community.
