PUTATAN: Tanjung Keramat Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate, Shahelmy Yahya hopes to bring in better internet connectivity to the constituency here.
He reminded that strong internet connectivity is important as the country moves towards digital technology where most lives’ activities such as shopping and doing business, playing games and even learning can be done online.
He added that there are now many activities in ones’ life where they are connected to digital technology.
“They shop online, make payments online, even study online,” he said.
He said that people were able to attend classes in the comfort of their own homes during the Movement Control Order (MCO) which stretched from March to June, this year.
“But for us to be able to do that, we need good internet connectivity and strong broadband,” he said when launching the PUBG Mobile Online Tournaments organized by the Youth Association at Kampung Sri Pandan near here.
Shahelmy also said that the younger generation are those who have adapted well to the technology.
“E-sport is very popular among them. But they are limited in terms of data and access to broadband,” he said.
Also present is PAS coordinator for Tanjung Keramat, Yusrizal Anuar.
