PUTRAJAYA APRIL 8: The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission is very concern about the semester six student who has to go as far as 1O-15KM to get internet access and study in the bonnet after the telecommunication tower in Telupid district caught fire on 25th March 2022.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) said, since the telecommunication tower caught fire, the internet coverage in several areas near Pekan Telupid has been affected and as such MCMC and the service provider have been trying to repair it in stages.
MCMC added, to date the DIGI service has been recovered and currently in operation.
Meanwhile the CELCOM and Maxis services are expected to recover within two weeks.
“MCMC would like to advise all students and the local community to take self-safety as a priority. As a temporary measure, the community can visit the Digital Economy Malaysian Family Centre (PEDI) situated in Pekan Telupid to get internet access at a safer place until the process of restoration is completed and the telecommunication tower operates as usual shortly,” MCMC said in a statement today.
