Pusat Internet (Internet Centre) is one of the initiatives under Universal Service Provision (USP) by the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC).
There are currently 870 Pusat Internet in operation all over the country. Among the facilities provided are high speed Internet as well as ICT and e-commerce courses and training. These Internet centres have not only increased the skillsets of the local community, but have also elevated their economic status at the same time.
Thus, recent allegations by certain quarters that gives the impression that all Pusat Internet in Malaysia will be closed is an irresponsible act.
MCMC confirms that Pusat Internet all over the country will not be closed and that the allegations are completely baseless.
The allegations made by Nusuara Technologies Sdn. Bhd. – the main operator of the Pusat Internet under Celcom – is a careless act and both parties are urged to provide justification and further clarification to MCMC.
