State Govt considers providing electronic devices to students
KOTA KINABALU: The Sabah Government is considering providing electronic devices to underprivileged students in the state to facilitate their Home-based Teaching and Learning (PdPR) sessions.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Hajiji Noor (pic) said the State Government understood the constraints and challenges faced by parents in providing the devices for their children's learning process at home.

"We know that many underprivileged students in Sabah are facing this problem," he told reporters after visiting the site of a landslide at KM44.7 Jalan Penampang-Tambunan near here, Tuesday.

On the internet coverage in Sabah, Hajiji said, the federal government is committed to enhancing broadband service in the state through the National Digital Infrastructure Plan (Jendela) worth RM2.5 billion.

Through the initiative, he said, more than 400 new towers would be built and about 2,000 existing transmitters would be upgraded to 4G within two years.

Hajiji did not rule out the possibility of a slight delay in implementing the Jendela projects following the Movement Control Order (MCO), however, he remained optimistic that work would continue when the country entered the conditional MCO phase.
