Government plans to block internet access from government systems


The government plans to block internet access from government systems in 1 years' time. This means that civil servants cannot use their desktop computers to serve the Internet.

Many netizens have criticized this move in postings in the Internet.

A practical solution is for the government agencies to set a separate network for their employees to serve the Internet in the course of their work. This separate network is easy to set up and is rather inexpensive. It is similar to a wifi network that is available in most homes.

The capacity of this separate network should be quite low, as it is intended only for the civil servants to serve the Internet in the course of their work.

The civil servants can still use their personal mobile phones or tablets to serve the Internet for personal purposes.
