Collective effort to improve post MCO

When the entire Malaysian nation went into its first MCO on March 18 last year, many people didn’t know what changes to expect. Since the format of working would need to see a change with the use of the internet. The unexpectedness of the pandemic hitting was the biggest reason to change the way we work today. 

Fortunately many sectors are able to adapt the entire shift.  From the physical formatting to the digital formatting. Where many today are working from home. While many are enjoying the current way of working, there are also many that aren’t too happy with it. With the current situation where they could have or been experiencing slow internet speeds and access. 

With all that’s happening around us so quickly, it’s only quite natural that hiccups and improvements are to be made to a work system that has been a norm since pre-Covid. However, post-Covid and MCO, the work system was bound to see changes. Yet, there are still some hiccups that are bound to be faced. The then existing communications structure wouldn’t be able to handle the usage load.

To combat the issue, the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia (KKMM) to implement the National Digital Network (Jendela) initiatives this year. It is also expected that the quality level of the connectivity and quality of communication services will increase. As it would see improvements under the National Digital Network initiatives. 

Minister Datuk Saifuddin Abdullah commented that “During MCO, internet access in housing areas was congested and slow as internet usage was very high due to working, learning and business from home. 

The new initiative could potentially see an upgrade in digital connectivity. In terms of its level and quality throughout the nation which is also. Which is also expected to solve the issue of congested and slow internet connectivity. Which many are also currently facing throughout the nation.
