"SKMM through the Universal Service 
Provision (USP) programme has allocated one million 1Malaysia 
netbooks to be distributed amongst eligible recipients such as
secondary and university students  as well as other  lower-income 
groups to ensure that they have the opportunity to access the Internet 
and also to increase broadband usage throughout the country. This will 
contribute to the nation’s broadband penetration rate as well as extend 
the benefits of broadband to students and the nation”.
Tan Sri Khalid Ramli, 
Chairman of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission (SKMM)  

The above was the official announcement about netbooks to be given to poor students to increase broadband usage.  Yesterday morning, the handing over ceremony of these 1Malaysia Netbooks was held in my school.  The recipients were gathered in the hall for the ceremony.
Hopefully, those who received the free Netbooks would use them wisely and not abuse the good intentions of the government.
