The Home Access Programme aims to close the digital divide by providing affordable broadband bundle package to low-income households.
Launched in September 2014, the Home Access Programme targets to benefit 8,000 households over four years. Due to good response, IMDA enhanced the programme in order to reach out to more households.
From 1 April 2017, the Home Access Programme will be expanded to benefit another 16,000 households. Under Home Access 2.0, each eligible household will receive 24 months (or 2 years) of subsidised fibre broadband connectivity, with the option to own a tablet1.
