Introduction

In a Digital Society, digital access is a necessary enabler for all citizens to undertake essential acts of daily living (e.g. obtaining information, transacting online, staying socially connected), and supports social and economic participation (e.g. working and learning remotely).

Given Singapore’s digitalisation imperative, IMDA’s Digital Access programme seeks to drive digital adoption and reduce affordability gap among the vulnerable segment that wishes to enthuse digitally enabled lifestyles but cannot afford to do so.

Objectives

This CFC aims to seek proposals from the Internet Service Providers and Mobile Service Providers for the provision of affordable connectivity plans (i.e. home broadband plan(s) and mobile plan) and infocomm devices to the beneficiaries of the Programme to enable them to undertake essential acts of daily living (e.g. obtaining information, transacting online, staying socially connected), and supports social and economic participation (e.g. working and learning remotely).
