From the pool, RM600 million will be allocated to provide every Malaysian with 1GB of free internet everyday starting this April 1. This is to help folks continue working from home without forking too much for their internet.
On top of that, the PM also announced that RM400 million will be invested into improving internet coverage and quality across the nation. Not much else has been disclosed so far, but we can expect a more detailed run down of the stimulus package in the coming hours.
