1 August, KUALA LUMPUR – The Communications and Multimedia Ministry plans to formula a bill to make compulsory for all new housing projects to be installed with Internet facility.

Its minister, Gobind Singh Deo said through the proposed bill, the Internet facility would be categorised as a utility, just like electricity and water supply at home.

If (Internet) it becomes a basic human right, it can be categorised as a utility there’ll be a need for all houses to be connected with fiber, he said when winding up the debate on the motion of thanks for the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s speech on behalf of his ministry in the Dewan Rakyat today.

He said this in response to a suggestion by Datuk Seri Dr Ismail Mohamed Said (BN-Kuala Krau) to make compulsory for developers to install broadband facility at their housing projects.
