The POLIMAS Campus Network System Project under the ESSP project with the World Bank financial fund was fully completed in 2004. At the start of its operation, the POLIMAS campus network operates with 2 Mbps high speed Internet and high technology ICT installations. In 2005, under the "Crash Program" finances, ICT network equipment was added to new academic buildings and new Administrative Units. Along with the current needs and increasing number of staff at POLIMAS, in 2008 POLIMAS upgraded the speed of the Internet's own line speed to 4 Mbps which enables all staff to work more effectively. By upgrading the Internet, several ICT facilities and services can be offered to POLIMAS staff such as Wireless Internet, Video Conference and CCTV.

In November 2010, the Internet line at POLIMAS was upgraded under the Malaysia R & D Network (MYREN) Phase 2A project which involved 20 polytechnics and 20 community colleges fully funded by the Malaysian government. To date, under the MYREN project, the Internet line at POLIMAS operates at 10MB (Metro-E) bandwidth capacity. The MYREN project uses the concept of "dedicated network linking research and education entities" throughout Malaysia with Internet routing according to the zone and each zone is centered on the MYREN Core Network.
