JOHOR BAHRU – The free WiFi internet service to be enjoyed by Johorians from February will bring economic benefits to the community.
Johor Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin said today, the service was not only available to the people in the city but also to those in selected rural areas.
“Only with a stable and widespread internet network, can rural areas receive a variety of economic benefits from the city,” he said before launching the JCorp Wifi and E-Hailing services at Larkin Sentral, here.
JCorp WiFi, a collaboration between Johor Corporation and strategic partner Telekom Malaysia Bhd, was one of the touchpoints of the Johor Budget 2018.
Via JCorp WiFi, more than 800 hotspots have been developed throughout Johor since November last year, and they are expected to be fully completed next month.
Mohamed Khaled is also the chairman of Johor Corporation (JCorp).
The E-Hailing application called TEKSICoop is a platform that facilitates the booking of taxis in Johor and is expected to compete with similar applications such as Uber and Grab.
“The drivers must strive to ensure that the services they offer are the best. The price, punctuality and courtesy of the taxi drivers are among the aspects that consumers expect,” said Mohamed Khaled. – BERNAMA
