TNB Expands Fibre Network To More Areas

Communications and Multimedia Minister Gobind Singh Deo has welcomed the decision of Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) to expand its fiberisation coverage to four more areas in Melaka after the successful implementation of the National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) pilot project in Jasin earlier this year.

TNB is expected to fiberise another 14,900 homes in addition to the 1,100 houses in Jasin earlier this year that will bring the total number of homes connected by TNB in Melaka to 16,000. The privately funded initiative would be implemented in stages covering both urban and suburban areas, such as Alor Gajah, with 8,200 homes; Jasin (2,700 homes) and Melaka Tengah (comprising 4,000 homes in Ayer Keroh and Malim Jaya).

Gobind has extended his hopes of TNB extending the initiative to other states, as they are well poised to do so using the infrastructure that they currently have. He also thanked the Melaka government for actively pursuing and facilitating the project and hopes that other states would also take the effort to enhance the expansion of networks in their states as well. Similar initiatives are being discussed with Kedah, Perak and Johor.
