Villagers in Penrissen still waiting for chance to use mobile phones

KUCHING, More than 1,000 residents in five Bidayuh villages in Penrissen, about 40 kilometres from here, are still waiting for the chance to use mobile phones as mobile coverage has yet to be available in the area.

The five villages are Kampung Semadang, Kampung Taba Sait, Kampung Pain Bojong, Kampung Semban and Kampung Rejoi.

A villager at Kampung Semadang, Remos Jepos, 42, said it had been way too long for them to be able to use their mobile phones like in any other areas.
