PUTRAJAYA, Sept 19 -- The National Fiberisation and Connectivity Plan (NFCP) is a dynamic five-year plan spanning from 2019 to 2023 and will constantly be improved from time to time, according to Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail.

Under the NFCP, approximately 4.14 million premises across the country would have access to high-speed broadband services through the fibre optic network.

“More people will have access to broadband services, including those in suburban and rural areas,” she said when launching the NFCP here today.

Dr Wan Azizah said the cost for the implementation of the NFCP was estimated at RM21.6 billion for the five-year period.

Of the total, between RM10 billion and RM11 billion will be provided by the Universal Service Provision (USP) Fund and the remaining would be from the investments by service providers to build the fibre optic network and mobile communication transmitters, she added.
