The development of Bandar MSC Cyberport, Johor's first Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) cybercity, is set to commence in the second quarter of next year.

The cybercity is a RM1.16 billion development within Iskandar Malaysia development corridor operated and managed by MSC Cyberport Sdn Bhd.

Executive director Ramlee Jaafar said so far, memoranda of understanding have been signed with two foreign companies.

"One of them is Sunil Mantri Realty Ltd from India and the other is a Korean company which I cannot reveal at this moment in time," he said.
"Submissions for development will be made in the first quarter of 2009, so we expect network development to begin by the following quarter," he added.

Speaking at a roadshow for the MSC Malaysia-British Telecom Digital Lifestyle Initiative in Johor Baru, Ramlee said despite the economic slowdown, the company will not review the cost of the project.

"We will instead be re-setting our priorities and focusing on important projects," he said.

MSC Cyberport is a 60-hectare information, communication and technology (ICT) city within Iskandar Malaysia.

Its location in Kulai where the Second Link and the North-South Expressway meet is seen as strategic for its function as a global ICT business hub with a world-class living environment for ICT companies within Iskandar Malaysia.
