“This was discussed today in a brief meeting with the SMA, looking at how to improve MCMC’s achievements in Sarawak, especially in 4G connectivity.

“There will be further discussions after this on how to speed things up as well as collaborations between the MCMC and SMA,” he told reporters after visiting and officiating the Sarawak MCMC office here yesterday.
