Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin has announced a new free internet access plan for Malaysians that will replace the current 1GB mobile data during the Movement Control Order and Conditional MCO (CMCO).

Dubbed “1GB Productivity Internet”, this is part of the Government’s PENJANA economic recovery plan, and will replace the existing free 1GB high-speed internet access for users. Under the terms of the “1GB Productivity Internet” offer, all Malaysians will receive 1GB data allocation daily to access specific online learning and productivity tools. The data allocation, valid from 8am to 6pm daily, can be used to access online education platforms Udemy, Classruum, and SunagoLearn, where the telco industry has made a range of online courses available for free.

In addition, this service will offer unlimited access to Microsoft Office 365 applications (as they are cloud-based services), as well as the Zoom video conferencing service.

The telco industry is also committed to providing connectivity solutions for education purposes during this period. YTL Communications, for example, has a Learn From Home initiative where parents with children in government schools, students and faculty of partner tertiary education institutions can receive free SIM cards with 40GB of data. For qualified students from B40 families, they can receive free mobile phones and SIM cards with 120GB of data.

Besides that, the Government will also offer free and zero-rated access to all Government websites as well as Covid-19 related apps such as Gerak Malaysia, MySejahtera, and MyTrace.

Originally, the free 1GB mobile data was announced as part of the PRIHATIN Economic Stimulus Package, where all mobile phone lines will receive 1GB complimentary mobile data that is usable from 8am to 6pm daily throughout the Movement Control Order (MCO) period. This was then extended by the telcos when the Conditional MCO (CMCO) commenced, with almost all telcos extending this offer until further notice.

The 1GB Productivity Internet will commence from 10 June, the day after the current 1GB free high-speed internet feature ends, and will be available to all prepaid and postpaid customers from Celcom, Digi, Maxis, U Mobile, and Unifi Mobile.
