KUCHING: Puncak Borneo MP Datuk Willie Mongin is pleased with the installation of optical fibre cable in villages in his constituency.

Recently, he was briefed by TM Sarawak on the application status for the fiber-optic internet in all the villages in the Puncak Borneo parliamentary Constituency which was applied for in early 2019.

The briefing took place at the TM Sarawak Hub on Friday (Oct 8).

Willie disclosed that among the areas ready to subscribe to the broadband services were Kpg Bratan; Kpg Duras; Kuching Police Training Centre (Pulapol); Puncak Borneo Prison; Bayur Health Clinic; Padawan Sub-District Office; Bengoh Resettlement Scheme (BRS); Pasar Siburan; SMK Tarat; Taman Tarat Mas; Kpg Rayang; Taman Muhibbah Tarat; Beratok; Siniawan Market; Buddhist Village and Taman Siniawan.

In light of this, he suggested TM provide an affordable subscription price package so that the villagers were not burdened by high monthly payments.

He added that the installation of optical fibre cable for other villages in the Puncak Borneo Parliamentary Constituency was expected to be completed by the end of 2022.

Also present during the briefing were TM Sarawak Manager Abdul Rahman Taha; Head of Unit (Network) Sarawak Jafer Sadiq Abdul Latiff; Head of Kuching Zone (Business) Nazarihan Khalit; and Head of Stampin Zone (Business) Monica Redeem Henry Rigit.
