He also went on to mention that the Kampung Baharu tower has already been upgraded to improve the 4G quality and the new tower at Sungai Chuchuh is already operational, improving the service quality for residents in Sungai Chuchuh Unicity and surrounding areas.
Utusan Malaysia previously reported that the poor connectivity in Kampung Seri Kesinai has forced residents to leave their homes in search of a better signal. PdPR activities and even checking emails can be a challenging task for the residents in the area, due to poor signal reception.
