The Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) has launched two new Internet Packages yesterday (15 September) in hopes of helping teenagers and students, especially the less fortunate, have affordable devices and access to the Internet.

Minister of Communications and Multimedia Tan Sri Annuar Musa introduced the two packages, namely the ‘Malaysian Family Youth Package’ and the ‘Malaysian Family Device Package’, adding that the discount package would start on 15 October and will last for six months.

“For the Malaysian Family Youth Package, it is a prepaid package specifically for teenagers and students, including postgraduate students. At only RM10 a month (with payment of RM30 for three months), they will get 20GB for three months,” he said, reported BERNAMA.

“They will also get 1GB free for productivity activities daily, as well as unlimited basic internet. With this package, users can perform activities such as sending messages and surfing the Internet.”

Additionally, he said that the package would be suitable for productivity data, online learning and for those working from home as well.

“For 20GB data, it can also be used for downloading videos or online games,” he said.

He explained that this package would be convenient for teenagers and students as they wouldn’t need to top up the value every month.

Those under the age of 21 would only need to register with their MyKad, while those older than 21 years old are required to register for the package with their student card.

As for the Malaysian Family Device Package, individuals can own or upgrade to mobile devices and Voice over Long-Term Evolution (VoLTE) for free through this package.

“The device can be owned with a subscription of as low as RM40 per month through a contract for 12 to 24 months depending on the type of device and service subscribed,” Annuar Musa said.

“This package includes 1GB of free data for productivity activities. Each eligible user can subscribe to up to two packages by registering under one identity card.”

He also expressed his hope that more families would take advantage of this package to complement their internet services.

Following a sharp increase in Internet usage for various activities during the National Recovery Plan (NRP), Annuar Musa said the package was provided to meet the people’s need for better connectivity, affordable price and better quality delivery.

“It is the government’s responsibility to ensure everyone has Internet access at an affordable cost,” he said.

He also added that has met with the telecommunication companies to discuss ways to provide the people with better connectivity.
