THE Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) through the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) will build more cellular telephone substations to help the community in Kota Tinggi, Johor, to improve living standards through online business.

Its Minister Tan Sri Annuar Musa (picture) said he had also instructed service providers to improve services especially in populated areas, besides taking action to build new transmitter structures, upgrade existing transmitter stations, fibre optic network connectivity and the Malaysian Family Digital Economy Centre (PEDi).

“One of the 13 new transmitter structures has been completed while another 12 are under implementation.

“For the work of upgrading transmitter stations, 70 have been completed and three more stations are in the process of upgrading,” he said in a statement yesterday.

Furthermore, fibre optic connection work is in full swing with 669 out of 3,934 premises having been equipped with fibre optic connection.

The existing six PEDi facilities in Kota Tinggi also provide added value and convenience to the locals in carrying out their daily affairs.

As of the fourth quarter of 2021 (4Q21), 4G coverage in Johor is at 98.68% and is targeted to increase to 99.14% by the end of 2022.

Meanwhile, for broadband speeds, as of 4Q21, it is at 8.15Mbps and targeted to increase to 35Mbps.

“KKMM is committed to provide the best service to Malaysian Family in Johor through various initiatives planned, not only in Kota Tinggi but also including Felda areas which will continue to be given attention.

“Therefore, I hope the residents of Kota Tinggi will take full advantage of this facility to improve their standard of living such as doing business online as well as diversify their sources of income,” he added.
