According to Malaysia’s deputy prime minister, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, broadband penetration in the country has already surpassd the 50% target that the government had set for the end of this year. As reported by the Star Online, according to the politician the result has been achieved through cooperation between the public and private sectors, and as of mid-September penetration stood at 53.5%, noting in particular that the country had ‘created more community broadband centres … as part of efforts to increase the penetration in rural areas and in the fringes of towns.’
