The Wifi Smart Selangor initiative was introduced by the Selangor State Government as part of an important component in the development of the Smart Digital Eco-System. This effort was placed to enable Selangor to be a state-of-the-art and competitive state, in line with the State Government's intention to become a Smart State through the empowerment of Internet Of Things (IoT).
The Wifi Smart Selangor covers extensively throughout Selangor, located both in the city and suburban community. Since its implementation, Selangor saw a sharp increase in the number of Internet penetration. There are now nearly 4,000 free Wifi hotspots with areas accessible throughout Selangor with a total registered user of around 1 million users, more AP installations are planned. Access to the Selangor Smart Wifi coverage level in urban areas has now reached over 70 per cent, for the period until the end of 2017. Our target is focused on the needs of technology utilization in urban areas as well as the rural areas.
"With increased mobility and connectivity, Selangor will lead the digital transformation plan to build efficient, fast and more connected people of the whole state"
- Dato' Seri Mohamed Azmin Ali
Former Menteri Besar of Selangor
