Serba Dinamik in collaboration with Sabah govt to reduce rural digital divide



KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 22 --  Serba Dinamik  Group Bhd, a provider of internet access through local satellite technology, has installed the Proof of Concept (POC) for Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) satellite internet access in Kampung Betutai, Tuaran, Sabah to reduce the rural digital divide.

In a statement,  Serba Dinamik  said the installation was a collaboration project with the Sabah Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (KSTI).

With facilities like this in some community focus areas, the community can enjoy internet data through WiFi facilities for free during a trial period of at least two months.

"The technical testing phase is also supported by the Community Development Leaders Unit (UPPM) of the Chief Minister's Department and local company Bumi Bakti Gemilang Sdn Bhd in providing training and awareness programmes to the local community on space technology in communication matters," it said.

Through the installation of simple and flexible satellite VSAT hardware,  Serba Dinamik  believes that it can create opportunities to enhance the skills of local talent in the satellite industry.

"This is in line with the wishes of KSTI, the Sabah State Government,  Serba Dinamik , and Bumi Bakti Gemilang in providing infrastructure facilities and digital transformation for the Sabah people," it said.

Both companies will announce affordable WiFi data plans for the local community with the introduction of the VSAT Internet SurFiBah! product after testing is completed.

 A simple plan for internet data coupons for sales agents will be provided in stages and will collaborate with local agencies such as the state’s Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (MCMC) and UPPM to identify potential areas for satellite internet access for the next phase.
