Malaysia is getting closer to reaching its 50 per cent target of broadband penetration rate by 2010 in the domestic sector, having reached 31.4 per cent, surpassing the 30 per cent target set for this year.
Now, more people are using mobile phones which may come with broadband facility, he said.
“We should base our conclusions and data now on the number of mobile phones we own,” he said.
“Malaysians currently own more than 28 million mobile telephones in the country, and this is a high rate of achievement in the use of mobile phones…but a study has not been done based on this reality. From now, we should be looking at other indicators besides the number of households,” he said.
