Better telecommunication coverage in store for Hulu Dungun – MCMC

— The problem of weak telecommunication coverage in several villages in Hulu Dungun will be resolved with the upgrading of 10 existing telecommunications towers under the National Digital Network Plan (JENDELA), the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) said.

In a statement today, MCMC said it would cover the path from Kampung Minda to Pasir Raja, which involves Kampung Talong, Kampung Rantau Panjang, Kampung Kuala Jengai, Kampung Jongok Batu and Kampung Shukor.

“So far only one service provider has completed upgrading works of its existing tower and can offer 4G coverage in that area.

“Upgrading works for other towers are expected to be completed in stages from November to February 2022, and when completed, it will benefit more than 3,000 residents in these areas,” it added.

It said Terengganu MCMC director Mohd Fairus Muhamad and Terengganu Tengah Development Authority ICT manager Hazroll Eizwal Jasni had met the Village Development and Security Committee of Kampung Minda and Kampung Talong to discuss the problem.

“Checks along the route alignment from Kampung Minda to Pasir Raja showed that it is covered by a fibre optic network (UNIFI). As such, MCMC suggests that residents make use of this service by subscribing to a suitable package,” the statement said.
