KUALA LUMPUR: Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pa­nies have un­til Sept 30 to submit pro­pos­als for new broad­band pack­ages to the Malaysian Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Com­mis­sion (MCMC), said

Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Mul­ti­me­dia Min­is­ter Gobind

Singh Deo.

“I hope that af­ter the pro­pos­als are sub­mit­ted, we can im­ple­ment them.

Bro adb and prices will drop and the speed will in­crease by the end of this year,” he said on Twit­ter yes­ter­day.

Gobind said pro­pos­als were ini­tially sup­posed to be sub­mit­ted be­fore Aug 31, but there were re­quests for it to be ex­tended for two years.

“We re­jected them. The ex­ten­sion is only un­til Sept 30. This is be­cause the SST (Sales and Ser­vice Tax) was implemented on Sept 1 and there was a need to re­solve cer­tain is­sues, such as pre­paid reload cards. No more ex­ten­sion af­ter this.”
