JOHOR BAHRU, May 5 (Bernama) — The Johor government has allocated over RM1.9 million for premium Maju Johor broadband (WiFi) facilities in 63 hotspots in 23 locations across the state from July.

Johor Education and Information Committee chairman Aznan Tamin said Johor Government Education Colleges, Johor Sultan Ibrahim Islamic University College and Johor Education Foundation College, are among the locations receiving the initiative with a minimum speed of 1 Gbps for every line, where each location has a number of lines.

Moreover, he said the four government hospitals that will receive this initiative are Sultanah Aminah Hospital, Johor Bahru, Sultan Ismail Hospital, Johor Bahru, Sultanah Nora Ismail Hospital, Batu Pahat and Enche’ Besar Hajjah Kalsom Hospital, Kluang.

“The next location is at the registration counter and waiting room of the Johor Bahru Land Office, Kulai District Land Office, Customs, Immigration and Quarantine (CIQ) Complex at Sultan Iskandar Building and Larkin Bus Terminal.

“A total of 25 hotspots in 13 People’s Housing Projects (PPR) in the state of Johor will be provided with Premium WiFi facilities at a speed of 2 Gbps per hotspot. This facility will benefit 12,700 families,” he told reporters after the 2024 state inauguration National Anti-Scam Tour Program and the launch of Premium Maju Johor Wi-Fi Initiative at Sultan Iskandar Hall, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) here today.

Also present was Cybersecurity Malaysia Chairman General (R) Tan Sri Zulkifeli Mohd Zin.

Meanwhile, regarding online fraud or scams in this country, Zulkifeli said there were 7,651 cases involving a loss value of RM332 million between January and March.

According to him, the Cyber ​​Incident Response Center – Cyber999, operated by CyberSecurity Malaysia, has recorded a total of 1,555 cyber security incidents based on reports from internet users during the same period.

“Reported incidents cover a wide range of cyber threats, with online fraud remaining the highest reported incident at 1,025 or 66 percent of total reports.

“We have therefore taken the initiative to organize a series of National Anti-Scam Tours (JASK) to raise community awareness about various fraud threats,” he said.

The JASK program is inspired by the Gabungan Bertindak Anti Scam, which consists of government agencies, private organizations, industry players, non-governmental agencies, associations and higher education institutions and is supported by the Digital Ministry.

The JASK 2024 program that started in the state will be followed by Kedah (June) and Perak (October).
