high speed broadband (up to 100 Mbps) in high economic impact areas (such as Greater Kuala Lumpur/
Klang Valley) and broadband to the general population (below 5 Mbps) in semi-urban and rural areas. The
Government is jointly funding the rollout of the former via a partnership with the private sector and the latter
partly through the Universal Services Provision fund.
The Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission and Ministry of Information, Communications
and the Arts will continue to work with telecommunications companies to widen network coverage,
increase network speeds and further increase broadband affordability. The Government will also amend the
Uniform Building By-Law 1984 to mandate developers to incorporate broadband facilities in residential and

Malaysia Plan. Specifically, the Government has committed to:
• Building and improving roads Several key roads such as the Penang Second Bridge (linking Penang island to the mainland) and the
South Klang Valley Expressway are scheduled to be completed from 2012 onwards; • Developing the rail network
