Community Broadband Centers
The Government through SKMM has set up Community Broadband Centers (CBC) to provide collective community Internet access to remote areas identified under the Universal Service Provision (USP) program. Each CBC set up is equipped with IT equipment and personal computers connected to internet broadband access to allow rural communities to enjoy the benefits of the internet.
To further improve their social and economic status, software and training is also provided at each CBC. It is hoped that the setting up of CBCs will contribute towards achieving success in the national initiative to bridge the digital divide between urban and rural communities, in line with the objectives outlined in the National Broadband Implementation Strategy and MyICMS 886 Technology Roadmap.
It is our target to set up a CBC in each remote area identified under the Universal Service Provision (USP) program. However, in some instances certain areas may have more than one CBC to meet larger population demand and will from time to time be increased as the demand grows.
