KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 – The Kemaman Smart Community initiative, which was recognised as among five best projects at the World Summit on the Information Society Forum 2016 from May 2 to 6 in Geneva, Switzerland will be expanded nationwide.

Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) chairman Datuk Seri Dr Halim Shafie said the initiative, which was introduced by MCMC early last year through a pilot project in Kemaman, had been launched at Kota Belud in Sabah, Lundu (Sarawak) and Putrajaya.

“This initiative is aimed at improving the quality of life and socio-economic status of the local community through the use of ICT and faster access to information. The first requirement for a smart community is its communications infrastructure equipment,” he said.

“Since a year ago, MCMC and telecommunications companies had intensified their efforts to expand the coverage and speed of broadband services in Kemaman, either through fiber optic technology, 3G or LTE (long term evolution),” he said in a statement here Wednesday.
