In a bid to allay fears of Singapore regressing to the “Stone Age”, the Info-communications Development Authority of Singapore (IDA) issued this poster last night.
Instead of suggesting that internet access is removed, the poster calls the initiative “Internet Surfing Separation”.
Officers would be able to access the Internet with the devices provided by their agency.
Civil servants who have to interact with the public would still be able to carry out their jobs.
Agencies have been given a period of one year to implement this internet surfing separation programme.
