The residents of Damansara Bistari low cost flats in SS2, Petaling Jaya will soon enjoy free WiFi internet access.

It will help save on their monthly internet service fee.

Damansara Utama state assemblywoman Yeo Bee Yin said the area is one of the locations identified to receive free wireless internet access under the Selangorku WiFi programme initiated by the Selangor state government.

“This is the only area in my constituency with low-income group and I am paying more attention to this area with various programs to ensure everyone in the constituency will have equal opportunities although their income level is a bit different,” Yeo told Citizen Journalists Malaysia (CJMY) at the Hari Raya open house at Block B flats on August 31.

The free WiFi hotspot service at Damansara Bistari flats would enable the residents, especially children to be internet savvy without paying anything.

Yeo said that apart from the free WiFi, other programs for helping the community living in the flats such as the free RM100 shopping vouchers for elderly residents to purchase groceries had already been distributed to the flats residents.
