As part of the new Penjana Economic Recovery Plan, the government has extended its free 1GB Internet data offer until 31 December 2020, an initiative introduced at the start of the Movement Control Order (MCO). The free Internet data will be delivered daily through participating telcos to help Malaysians access education, news, and video conferencing services.
The free data can be used from 8AM to 6PM daily. Telcos also provide free access to COVID-19-related government websites and applications such as MySejahtera.
Free 1GB data is currently offered by Celcom, Digi, Maxis, U Mobile, Telekom Malaysia, Tune Talk and Yoodo. Prior to the announcement, TM announced an extension of the free data offer for its unifi Mobile customers, until 31 August 2020.
The just-announced Penjana Economic Recovery Plan is part of the country’s six-stage strategy in weathering the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Under Penjana, the government has identified three key drivers: Empower people, Propel businesses, and Stimulate the economy. Overall, 40 initiatives worth MYR35 billion have been allocated under Penjana, with a total of MYR10 billion direct fiscal injection by the government.
The government has also announced free MYR50 e-wallet credit to eligible Malaysians.
